The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced three new recall campaigns, which are affecting a lot of models worldwide.
According to the car manufacturer, the first recall has been announced because of the fuel delivery pipes and the fuel pressure sensor may form a bad seal, causing fuel leak and a possible fire risk in a hot engine bay. The affected vehicles in this case are the 2007-2010 Lexus LS, the 2006-2011 GS, the 2006-2011 IS, the 2010 IS C and the 2008-2010 IS-F, in 423,000 units, but happily, the carmaker says that it is not aware of any fires, crashes or injuries related to this problem.
The company’s dealers will be replacing the gasket seating surface between the fuel pressure sensor and the fuel delivery pipe and this will be made free of charge. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified soon. The second recall is affecting approximately 802,000 units of the Toyota Crown Majesta, the Noah, the Voxy and the Crown because of a seal which could leak in the brake master cylinder. The last recall is affecting the Corolla Rumion and the Auris in Japan, in 190,000 units, and it has been announced because of a faulty evaporative emission control unit.
