UMW Toyota today announced an expansion to the fuel pump recall Special Service Campaign, this time involving another 10,350 Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Malaysia.
Based on information received from Toyota Motor Corporation, the recall exercise will involve 9,500 units of Toyota vehicles, and 850 units of Lexus vehicles, manufactured from July 2017 to July 2019, and distributed by UMW Toyota.

Similar to the previous recall which involved 13,500 vehicles, the models listed above may be equipped with a potentially faulty fuel pump which may stop operating, resulting in warning lights and messages being displayed on the instrument panel, as well as loss of engine power, which may be dangerous during unfortunate circumstances.
The defective fuel pump is manufactured by Denso, which has caused a global recall exercise involving more than 5.84 million vehicles worldwide, from various manufacturers. In Malaysia, Toyota, Honda, and Mazda have issued recalls for various models in their line-ups due to the fuel pump issues.
Owners of vehicles involved in this recall exercise will be officially notified by UMW Toyota, and the replacement work for the fuel pump unit will be done at no charge. However, UMW Toyota says that the replacement work should depend on the car models.
For further information, customers of affected cars may contact any authorised Toyota service centre, or call the Toyota toll-free hotline at 1800-8-TOYOTA (869682).
