This is Toyota's third major recall in 2020.

The new recall includes 1.5 million Toyota and Lexus cars that have been produced worldwide since 2013. The problem is a fuel pump malfunction. The defect can cause the engine to stop at high speed, as well as the loss of power when braking or taxiing, which can lead to a serious accident.

The Japanese automaker's models that are subject to the recall include the RAV4, 4Runner, Tacoma, Land Cruiser, Corolla, Highlander, Sienna and Tundra. Besides, some Lexus models will be sent for repair, including the LS, LX, GS, GX, NX, UX, RC and ES. The fuel pump will be replaced free of charge on the recalled vehicles. All problem vehicle owners will be notified of the recall by December.

This is the second recall caused by a fuel pump malfunction since the beginning of the year. In March, the company recalled 3.2 million cars due to problems with the gas pump. In January, Toyota sent more than 82,000 fire-dangerous cars for repair.
