  • Toyota Camry

    Toyota announced this week a recall of 11,800 Toyota vehicles for a fuel line leak that could pose a fire hazard. 11,800 2018 Toyota Camrys were included in the recall due to a possibility that fuel hoses were not properly installed, leading to an odor or leak and increasing the risk of fire. Affected owners will be notified by mail in early April, or visit and enter your VIN number.

  • Toyota Lexus

    Toyota also announced a recall of 9,900 of its Lexus vehicles. Toyota says a high-pressure fuel pump cover can become damaged over time which increases the risk of a fuel leak and possible fire. This recall affects the 2015-2018 Lexus RC F, 2016-2018 Lexus GS F, and the 2018 Lexus LC 500 vehicles. Authorized dealers will replace the fuel pumps at no cost to the consumer.

  • 2017-2018 RAM Trucks

These trucks have steering wheel mounted gear shifters and an internal flaw might allow a driver to inadvertently shift into gear without stepping on the brake. It might also be possible to shift the vehicle out of park when the key is not in the ignition. Both mechanical failures increase the possible of rollaway which could result in a crash or injury.
