HCMC – Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV) announced on May 14 that it will recall 32,527 cars to inspect and replace fuel pumps. The recall campaign is scheduled to begin June 1.
Cars subject to the recall include locally-assembled Camry, Corolla, Innova autos and imported Alphard, Fortuner, and Land Cruiser 200 models that were manufactured between October 5, 2017 and April 3, 2019.
Of these, there are up to 21,000 Innova cars, among the best selling models in the local market, to be recalled.
According to Japanese carmaker Toyota Motor Corporation, affected cars might see warning lights flashing on dashboards and the engine breaking down. The issue might also cause vehicles to stall when running at both low and high speeds, resulting in an increased risk of accidents.
Owners of affected cars can take their vehicles to any Toyota dealer nationwide for a fuel pump check and replacement, which takes two to four hours.
For cars that were not imported by TMV, the company will contact Toyota Motor Corporation, if it receives requests to check fuel pumps from customers. Once TMV receives approval from TMC, it will check and replace fuel pumps at no charge.
