Toyota is recalling its small C-HR SUV due to the potential of a fuel leak.
“The internal components of the fuel pump may wear and fracture the welded area of the fuel pump, which could lead to a fuel leak in the engine compartment,” the company says in its recall notice.
“If this was to occur, vehicle occupants may identify a fuel odour when driving.
“A fuel leak in the engine compartment may result in an engine bay fire. A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.”
