DETROIT – Toyota has recalled 1.5 million U.S. vehicles since the beginning of this year to repair fuel pumps.
The company recalls that a total of 5.8 million Toyota and Lexus brand vehicles were to be repaired worldwide.
The recall affects more than 40 vehicles in the United States up to the 2013 model year, covering most of the Toyota and Lexus model lineup.
Toyota said in a statement on Wednesday that the fuel pumps could suddenly stop working and it could cause vehicles to stall. Drivers may not be able to restart them. If the stall walks too fast, the risk of an accident increases. Toyota will not say if this problem has caused any accidents or injuries.
Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace fuel pumps at no cost to customers.
