The main reason for Toyota to recall these vehicles was as they were equipped with faulty fuel pumps which could have the affected vehicle’s operating system, Toyota said in a press release.
Adding further a senior spokesperson from the company stated that “If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and the engine may run rough. This can result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash”
