Toyota recalls 102,000 vehicles for engine debris concerns

June 6, 2024
The vehicles include recent models of the Tundra and Lexus LX.

Toyota announced a safety recall of certain model year 2022-2023 Toyota Tundra and Lexus LX (conventional gas model only) vehicles, affecting approximately 102,000 vehicles in the United States.

According to the company, there's a risk of machining debris being left in engines after production, causing potential engine knocking, rough running, engine no start, or a loss of motive power. As of the notice, which was issued on May 30, 2024, the company is actively developing a remedy for the issue and will notify vehicle owners of the possible issue by late July 2024. 

According to the recall report, the issue affects vehicles equipped with certain V35A engine configurations where machining debris may adhere to the main bearings. Over time, this can cause the bearings to eventually fail, leading to engine stall, loss of motive power, and an increased crash risk.
