Toyota Motor Corporation on Wednesday recalled 3.2 million vehicles worldwide to address a fuel pump issue that could result in engines stalling.
The Japanese automaker first said in January it would recall 696,000 U.S. vehicles with a fuel pump that may stop operating and lead to stalling of the engine. Dealers will replace the fuel pumps with new ones.
Toyota said the recall now covers 1.8 million U.S. Toyota and Lexus vehicles in total in the United States, including older vehicles from as far back as the 2013 model year — and more than 1 million vehicles than it announced in January.
Meanwhile, Toyota has commenced probe into the fuel pump issue.
According to Agency Reports, owners have complained of rough engine running, engine not starting and loss of power while driving at low speeds.
