Toyota is recalling Tundra cars in the year’s biggest recall.

Toyota has just initiated a voluntary recall campaign pertaining to specific models of the 2022 and 2023 Tundra and Tundra Hybrid trucks. This recall is the most extensive recall effort undertaken by Toyota in the year 2023.

On Thursday, the company made an announcement regarding 168,000 vehicles in the United States that are equipped with a plastic fuel tube. This component has the potential to come into contact with a brake line, leading to the development of a fuel leak. Toyota stated that if there was an ignition source nearby, the leak might start a fire.

The company will provide a complimentary replacement of the tube and is already making preparations to ensure the availability of the replacement parts. Meanwhile, Toyota has said that its dealers would provide clients with the installation of protective coverings and a clamp on the fuel tube, without any further charges.

Toyota intends to inform owners of impacted vehicles about the defective component by the beginning of October. Owners have the option to access the official website of Toyota at Toyota.com/recall, where they may input either their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or license plate details to ascertain whether their vehicle is encompassed under the recall.

The current situation pertains to the seventh instance of a recall associated with the 2022 or 2023 Tundra model. Past recalls have encompassed issues related to the vehicle’s electronic parking brake system, loose axle nuts, and a software malfunction affecting the rearview camera.

In the month of March, Toyota initiated a safety recall in the United States, including around 130,000 units of the 2022 and 2023 Tundra models. The recall was prompted by the identification of a defect in the truck-bed cover, which had the ability to detach from the vehicle, so posing a significant risk of collision.

The latest recall pertaining to the Tundra occurred on July 7th. The incident pertained to inadequately welded chains that serve the purpose of securing a spare tire beneath the car.
