Toyota is recalling 100,000 vehicles in the United States because of engine debris issues


Toyota is recalling approximately 100,000 vehicles due to concerns that loose debris inside the engine could cause stalling or other failures, federal regulators announced last week.

In some affected vehicles, debris from the manufacturing process may remain inside the engine, potentially causing knocking, rough running, and, in some cases, the engine stalling while driving.

The recall involves 2022 and 2023 model year Tundras and LX 600s, specifically the regular gasoline-powered versions, not hybrids, according to Toyota. (The Tundra is available in both gas-only and “iForce Max” hybrid versions.)

The recall report did not specify an immediate solution, and it's possible that impacted vehicles may require engine disassembly to ensure there is no debris inside. Any necessary repairs will be provided at no cost, the agency stated.

Vehicle owners will receive official recall notifications at the end of next month, according to the regulator’s filing.
