Toyota is Recalling 570,000 Vehicles in China

A recall of almost 570,000 vehicles manufactured between 2018 and 2023 has been announced by Toyota China and its two joint ventures, FAW-Toyota and GAC-Toyota in China.

According to the announcement, a total of 350,021 Corolla models produced between August 2019 and July 2023,  around 157,458 Highlander models produced between October 2018 and January 2022, and 68,434 units of imported Lexus RX models produced between September 2018 and September 2022 are being recalled.

As per details, the internal components of the high-pressure fuel pump in cars covered by this recall are not sufficiently resistant to pressure, and internal wear could lead to stress concentration-induced cracks in the fuel pump’s welding components. In extreme cases, fuel may leak from the cracks.  If it comes into contact with outside igniting sources, there’s a chance of fire. Simultaneously, fuel may seep and evaporate, posing unacceptable emission risks.

To prevent unwarranted discharge risks and safety hazards Toyota and its two joint ventures will inspect the high-pressure pumps on cars covered by the recall free of cost. If any parts are found to be deficient in some manner the vehicles will be fitted with upgraded high-pressure fuel pumps. Toyota advises owners of the aforementioned models to keep their vehicles away from sources of fire; if the user finds a fuel leak or smell, he should stop driving the car and get in touch with the dealer for disposal.
