Toyota recently announced that it is adding 1.2 million vehicles to a major recall due to possible fuel pump failures. In January, Toyota announced that they would recall nearly 700,000 U.S. vehicles due to defective fuel pumps. At that time, Toyota told the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator that they were aware of 66 field reports and 2,571 warranty claims related to fuel pump failures in the vehicles that were initially called. The addition of more vehicles brings the total recall to 1.8 million U.S. vehicles. In total, Toyota has recalled 3.2 million vehicles worldwide to address the issue.
