Toyota Recalls Over 100,000 Tundra, Lexus LX Vehicles Due to Possible Debris in Engine

Japanese vehicle manufacturer Toyota is recalling over 100,000 Tundra pickups and Lexus LX cars in the United States over an issue that could cause their engines to lose power while driving, increasing the risk of crashes.

The recall impacts 2022 and 2023 model year Toyota Tundra and Lexus LX (conventional gas model only) vehicles, the company said in a safety recall notice issued on May 30.

According to the vehicle maker, some engines in those models may contain machine debris that was not cleared during production.

There is a possibility that “certain machining debris may not have been cleared from the engine when it was produced,” Toyota said in the recall notice. “In the involved vehicles, this can lead to potential engine knocking, engine rough running, engine no start and/or a loss of motive power.”

The company noted that a loss of motive power while driving at higher speeds can increase the risk of a crash.

Approximately, 102,000 Toyota and Lexus branded vehicles are involved in the recall, the company said. However, the automaker has been unable to estimate the exact percentage of vehicles that contain the defect.
