2019 Toyota Camry, which is included in the latest Toyota and Lexus recall.

Toyota and Lexus are recalling about 1.8 million vehicles from the 2013 through 2019 model years because their fuel pump could stop working, which could lead to a sudden stall or hesitation while driving. The problem increases the risk of a crash, especially when the vehicle is traveling at a high speed. Some of these vehicles are being added to an existing recall that was already announced in January.

If a fuel pump fails, a driver may notice that the vehicle’s engine starts running rough and that warning lights may appear on the dashboard. The engine might not restart if it stalls.

Currently, there is no remedy for this recall. A spokesperson for Toyota, which is also the parent company of Lexus, told Consumer Reports that the automaker does not know when a recall will be available, but that it is “investigating the issue.”

When asked by CR, Toyota would neither confirm nor deny that there have been crashes or injuries related to this problem.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.

If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has been recalled.
