Toyota is recalling 1.67 million vehicles worldwide, including 423,000 in the United States, for problems ranging from potential fuel leaks to faulty brake cylinders to defective emissions equipment.
The recall that impacts U.S. owners stems from a fuel delivery pipe that may leak. If it does, it’s possible that it could start a vehicle fire. The recall impacts 795,000 globally, including the aforementioned 423,000 units in the U.S.
The vehicles affected include Toyota Crown, Crown Majesta and Mark X cars and Lexus IS, GS and LS sedans built from January 2005 to September 2010. While no injuries or accidents have resulted from the problem, complaints from the U.S. began in late 2010. (more…)
