Toyota recall on LandCruiser, Prado and other models over defective fuel pump

More than 45,000 Toyota vehicles have been recalled over concerns a defective fuel pump could increase the risk of crashes, but potentially dodgy parts may not be able to be replaced for months.

Key points:

  • More than 45,000 vehicles, including some of Toyota’s most popular models, are affected
  • Replacement of defective parts is expected to begin in June
  • Toyota will contact owners to advise them of the product recall and to schedule repairs

The fuel pumps on popular Toyota models such as the LandCruiser, Prado, Camry, Corolla and Hilux models manufactured between 2013 and 2019 could stop working at any time, causing them to stall.

“A loss of power while driving could increase the risk of a crash, which may cause injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users,” the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said.

Affected vehicles, which were sold across Australia, may also have problems being restarted.
