Due to fuel pump problems, Japanese auto industry leader Toyota Motor Corporation has announced a global recall of 3.2 million vehicles. The scope of influence includes the Toyota brand and multiple models of its premium car brand Lexus. And more than half of the problem vehicles are in North America.

Toyota said on Wednesday that the recalled vehicles include multiple models from 2013-2019. In the North American market, there are approximately 1.8 million vehicles in the United States and nearly 160,000 vehicles in Canada.

Due to gasoline pump and airbag problems in January, and some Camry, Camry Hybrid and Alphard models were recalled due to seat belt defects soon.

According to a comprehensive foreign media report, in January the original US Toyota factory found that many new vehicles under Toyota and Lexus had defects, and the fuel pump and gasoline pump malfunctioned, which may cause the engine to stall without warning and cause the vehicle to lose power and cause an accident. Therefore, a total of approximately 696,000 U.S. cars were recalled for more than 20 models, and they were replaced with new fuel pumps.

According to the understanding, the reason for the latest recall of the vehicle was due to a defective oil pump. Some owners complained that the vehicle had problems such as irregular idling, the engine could not be started, and insufficient power at low speeds, causing the engine to stall. After Toyota’s investigation, it was found that 180 Toyota and Lexus vehicles were involved in the United States, including the old vehicles of 2013. The number of recalls was more than one million more than in January. There are about 3.2 million vehicles worldwide.

In January this year, Toyota decided to recall about 700,000 cars in the US market because of fuel pump problems. It also announced the recall of nearly 2.9 million cars due to seat belt issues in the same month.

Regarding the problem of fuel pumps, Toyota said that the vehicle engine may stall without warning. Losing power while driving is likely to cause safety concerns or cause a car accident. As of January, about 700,000 vehicles of more than 20 models were affected.

Toyota told the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in January they noted that there were 66 on-site reports and 2,571 warranty claims related to fuel pump issues.

Some owners complain that the engine is not running smoothly or is difficult to start, or loses power when driving at low speeds. According to Toyota surveys, these phenomena are more common in the warmer regions of the southern United States.
