Fuel pump replacement campaign for Toyota and Lexus

By CARSIFU | 30 October 2020

SHAH ALAM: UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT), the distributor of Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Malaysia, has announced a Special Service Campaign (SSC) to replace the fuel pump on certain units of Toyota and Lexus models.

This SSC is an extension of an earlier campaign.

The company said the safety of its customers is always the top priority.

Based on the information received from Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), some 9,500 new units of Toyota (Alphard, Vellfire, Camry, Corolla, Fortuner, Innova, C-HR and Harrier) and 850 new units of Lexus (ES250, GS200t, GS350, IS200t, LC500, LS500, LX570, NX300, RX300 and RX350) models manufactured from July 2017 to July 2019 and distributed by UMWT are involved in this campaign.

Other models are not affected in this exercise.

Such vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump which may stop operating.

If this occurs, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and engine power hesitation may happen.

UMWT will officially notify all its affected vehicle owners to replace the fuel pump unit at no charge.

However, the replacement work should depend on the car models.

For details, owners of affected cars may contact any authorised Toyota Service Centre or call the Toyota Freephone at 1800-8-TOYOTA (869682).
