According to the recall, fuel pumps on affected vehicles could suddenly fail. This would obviously send up a bevvy of warning lights on the dash, but on the safe side, it would likely cause the engine to stall. A stalled engine could lead to a loss of power assist for braking and steering, which could certainly result in a dangerous situation especially if the engine quits at higher vehicle speeds.

The initial recall occurred in January 2020. 696,000 vehicles from the 2018-2019 model year were included, but in March a second recall expanded the list to 1.83 million vehicles going back to the 2013 model year. According to Toyota, affected owners from the first two recalls were notified earlier this year. Owners of the latest vehicles added to the recall will be notified by December.
