Toyota recalls Camry

An urgent product recall has been issued by Toyota Australia

August 9, 2012

Toyota Australia has recalled
its current model Camry, Camry Hybrid and Aurion vehicles built between October 2011 and July 2012.

The recall is due to a fuel hose that may have been incorrectly manufactured.

There is a possibility that the fuel hose that connects the main fuel supply line to the engine may have become wrinkled during connector insertion.

In some cases this could result in a small hole in the fuel hose which may allow fuel to leak.

There have been three reports of this condition in Australia. No accidents have been reported.

Toyota asks that impacted owners contact their preferred Toyota dealer as soon as possible to arrange an inspection and, if necessary, fuel hose replacement.

The inspection will take approximately 30 minutes and Toyota technicians will be able to easily confirm whether the condition exists.

Only vehicles found with a wrinkled fuel hose will require repair. The repair will take approximately one hour to complete at no cost to the customer.

Letters will be sent to all affected owners asking them to make an appointment with their preferred Toyota dealer.

A total of 19,099 vehicles are affected in Australia.
