(TORONTO, Ontario – March 28, 2018) Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) today announced that it is conducting a safety recall in Canada on 67 Model Year 2018 Camry vehicles.

The involved vehicle’s engine may be equipped with pistons from a particular production period that were produced with a diameter larger than the specification. In certain conditions, this may cause the vehicle to run rough, create an abnormal sound, emit smoke from the exhaust, and illuminate warning lights and messages. In some cases, a reduction of power may occur and the engine could stop running. A vehicle’s engine which stops while driving at higher speeds can increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will check the production date code of the pistons in the engine. If involved pistons are found, the engine will be replaced with a new one at no cost to customers. All known owners will receive a notification by first class mail by late May.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time. For the most up-do-date Safety Recall information on Toyota vehicles, customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting toyota.ca/recall and entering the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). For any additional questions, customer support is also available by calling Toyota Customer Interaction Centre at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828).
