TORONTO, ON – January 13, 2020 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2018-2019 Model Year Lexus GS 350 AWD, LX 570, and RX 350/350L; certain 2019 Lexus LS 500, LC 500, RC 300 AWD/350 AWD, IS 300 RWD, ES 350, GX 460, and NX 300; certain 2018-2019 Toyota Highlander, Sienna, Tundra, Sequoia, Tacoma and 4Runner; and certain 2019 Toyota Corolla, Camry and Avalon in Canada. Approximately 54,687 vehicles are involved in this recall.

The subject vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump which may stop operating.  If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and the engine may run rough.  This can result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota is currently investigating this issue and will be developing a remedy. When the remedy is available, there will be no cost to vehicle owners. All known owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by first class mail.
