Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer headquartered in Toyota City, Japan. It was founded in 1937 and stands as one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world, producing about 10 million vehicles per year.
According to CNN, the vehicle manufacturer recently issued a recall of 168,000 Tundra and Tundra hybrid trucks in the United States due to a fire risk. This recall affects certain 2022 and 2023 models.
This is due to a plastic tube defect that can accidentally rub against a brake line, causing a fuel leak that could result in a fire. For the affected vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the tube with improved materials and additional clamps at no cost to customers with the notice set to go out to affected owners by early October 2023.
