It seems Toyota Motor Philippines' (TMP) issue with faulty fuel pumps is far from over.
After recalling over 36,000 units of the Rush and Avanza last June, the automaker extended the coverage of its special service campaign for the fuel pump replacement. Joining the list are 32 units of the Toyota 86.
According to a DTI advisory, the affected 86 models were built from April 13, 2018, to October 31, 2018. The company is now informing affected owners through Official Notification Letters. Toyota will also invite them to bring their vehicles to a Toyota dealership to conduct the fuel pump replacement.
Not sure if your 86 is included? Owners can check if their vehicle is part of the special service campaign by visiting the Toyota Service Campaign website. There, they can type in their vehicle's chassis number/vehicle identification number (VIN) to see if their 86 needs to have its fuel pump replaced.
Should Toyota inform owners that their 86 is part of the recall, they will need to schedule their visit to their preferred dealership. More importantly, Toyota said that the fuel pump replacement for the 86 is free of charge.
So far, Toyota vehicles that had to have their faulty fuel pumps replaced include the Alphard, Corolla Altis, FJ Cruiser, pre-facelift versions of the Fortuner/Innova, and the Land Cruiser Prado. With the 86 joining the list, could this mean there are more vehicles carrying the potentially faulty component? You can check out the full list of vehicles affected in the document below.
