Most of the cars covered in this service would campaign faulty fuel pumps and connecting pipes, which can lead to a fuel leak. It should be noted that taking this recall by the company the total number of recalls by Toyota since late 2009 has reached 16 million cars.
First, this new campaign will start from the Japanese market, where the largest number of vehicles namely 1.28 million will be recalled for repair. The owners of models Voxy, Noah, Isis and RAV4 will need to contact the dealers.
In Europe, 141,000 cars, Avensis, produced between 2000 and 2008, were laid under the campaign service. In addition, about 335,000 other models of Toyota and Lexus will be recalled in the United States and Japan. United States about 245,000 cars are being recalled due to problems with a fuel pressure sensor connected to a discharge pipe of the engine fuel.
United States, approximately 152,500 IS250 models are affected by the recall.
The company noted in its statement that they have received complaints from several clients of the appearance of this defect, but no crashes or accidents associated with this malfunction has been detected.
The last major recall of Toyota was announced in October. Then, 1.66 million cars were recalled because of a problem with the brakes.
In 2010, Toyota for the second consecutive year has exceeded the number of recalls – and during the year, the Japanese manufacturer has conducted 17 campaigns and almost seven million cars were recalled in the free service. The main reasons for holding these campaigns were poorly laid carpet in front of the driver’s seat and gas pedal defective. In 2009, Toyota had announced nine recalls affecting 4.8 million cars.
Toyota says it is a voluntary safety recall involving about 245 000 from 2006 to 2007 Lexus GS300/350; 2006 to early 2009 Lexus IS250 2006 through early 2008 Lexus IS350 sold in the U.S. The Recall is to inspect the fuel pressure sensor installed in the vehicles, fearing they might not have been properly connected.
There are two possible outcomes for each inspection those Lexus dealers to perform on vehicles used, with one or the other to ensure that consumers are behind a safe Lexus. Again, according to their press release, Lexus dealers will inspect all vehicles leaking fuel just to make sure everything works, as it should. If no leaks are found, they will tighten the fuel pressure sensor with the proper torque.
