News Toyota Adds 1.57 Million Vehicles to Fuel Pump Recall

Toyota Adds 1.57 Million Vehicles to Fuel Pump Recall

Millions more added to Toyota/Lexus fuel pump recall

  • Fuel pumps could fail without notice

  • Recall now covers 3.34 million vehicles


Toyota said yesterday that it would be expanding an already large recall for bad fuel pumps in select Toyota and Lexus vehicles. The recall, which has already grown several times in 2020, is adding 1.57 million vehicles to the list.

The recall now affects more than 3 million vehicles in the US, though it’s not clear how many Canadian cars could be involved. The issue with the pumps is that they can fail at any time. If the pump fails, the engine could run roughly or poorly, or it could stop completely. Either issue could result in the vehicle stalling, and that means a potential loss of braking or steering assist (not complete steering or braking loss).

If this happens at higher speeds, Toyota says, the risk of a crash is increased.

The current list of vehicles included in the recall were not part of the January or April notices. Toyota will notify owners of the vehicles involved in the recall, and their Toyota or Lexus dealer will replace the pump with an improved one at no cost. Owners of any US-sold vehicle can check for active safety recalls through the NHTSA, while Canadian owners can check through Transport Canada.

The models and years included in this latest recall are:

2013-2015 Model Year Lexus LS 460;
2013-2015 Model Year Lexus GS 350;
