Toyota has issued a safety recall for 45,683 vehicles amid fears the fuel pumps could stop working causing drivers to stop suddenly.

The recall notice was issued on cars sold nationally between October 2013 and April 2020.

It covers several of the most popular Australian brands including Camry, Corolla, Prado and Hilux.

“The fuel pump on affected vehicles may stop operating,” Toyota said in a statement on Tuesday.

“If the fuel pump stops working, warning lights and messages may display on the instrument panel, and the engine may not run smoothly.

“This can result in the vehicle stalling and the vehicle may not be able to be restarted.”

If the power loss occurs while driving, it could increase the risk of a crash.
