Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,700 model-year 2018 Toyota Camry sedans
The Problem: The engine may run rough, create an abnormal sound, emit smoke from the exhaust, and illuminate warning lights and messages due to engine pistons with a larger diameter than specification; in some cases, a reduction of power may occur and the engine could stop running. All of these conditions increase the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will check the production date code of the pistons in the engine. If involved pistons are found, the engine will be replaced with a new one for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners by first-class mail by late May. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
