According to the Japanese automotive giant, certain model year 2022–2023 Tundra and LX vehicles may contain machine debris that was not properly cleared during production, posing potential problems with the engine. Symptoms of the issue may include engine knocking, rough running, difficulty starting, or loss of power while driving.

Currently, Toyota is in the process of developing a solution for the problem and intends to notify owners of affected vehicles by late July.

The recall specifically pertains to models equipped with a V35A engine variant, which features crankshaft main bearings allowing rotation within the engine assembly while in operation. A Toyota spokesperson confirmed the details of the engine issue, highlighting that during a specific production period, machining debris may not have been adequately cleared, potentially contaminating the engine assembly and leading to issues such as engine stalling while driving, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners of Toyota and Lexus vehicles can determine if their vehicles are affected by visiting the respective recall pages on the Toyota and Lexus websites. Additionally, they can check the USA TODAY automotive recall database or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s database using their vehicle identification number to search for any new recalls.
