Toyota Recalls About 696,000 Vehicles for Fuel Pump Problems

toyota recall

Toyota recalls about 696,000 vehicles for fuel pump problems. According to a Fox News report, the fuel pump in the affected vehicles may stop working, which could cause warning lights and messages to pop up on the instrument panel and the engine to run rough potentially. As a result, the vehicle could stall, and this increases the likelihood of a crash if that happens when the car is traveling at a high rate of speed.

No Remedy Yet

Toyota is working on a remedy but has not found one. When the repair is available, vehicle owners can do it at no cost. Mid-March will see the mailing of notices to vehicle owners. The Japanese automaker would not confirm whether there have been any injuries or crashes relating to this auto defect.

To see if your vehicle is involved in this or any other safety recall, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website and enter your vehicle identification number (VIN). The information should show up on the database if your vehicle has been recalled.

Dangers of Vehicle Stalling

Stalled vehicles have the potential to cause significant injuries and damages. When your vehicle suddenly stalls on the freeway in Southern California, for example, things could go horribly wrong. When a car stalls when it is in motion, there is a possibility that the driver loses control and crashes. A number of California freeway accidents involve stalled cars struck by others on the freeway. Automakers are responsible for manufacturing and designing safe vehicles for consumers. They are also legally obligated to report vehicle defects on time and promptly issue recalls.

If you have been injured due to a vehicle defect, whether or not the vehicle is part of a recall, you may receive compensation for your injuries, damages and losses. Injured victims can file an auto product liability lawsuit seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one as the result of an auto defect, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation as well. An experienced auto defect lawyer can help injured victims and families that have lost loved ones to defective automobiles secure justice and fair compensation for their losses.
