Toyota Crown

Toyota is recalling 1.75 million vehicles around the world for issues with the brake system and fuel components, BBC.com reported.

The first issue involves a faulty brake system that could crack and allow the brake fluid to leak. To solve this, Toyota will replace a rubber seal ring in the brake master cylinder to prevent the brake fluid from leaking. If the brake fluid has already leaked, the Japanese carmaker will replace the brake booster instead. Around 802,000 models of the Crown Majesta, the Crown, the Noah and the Voxy produced between June 2007 and June 2012 are reportedly affected by this recall.

The second recall concerns a faulty fuel-delivery pipe system that could leak and increase the likelihood of the vehicle catching fire. The affected vehicles are various Lexus models numbering approximately 759,000 globally and manufactured between January 2005 and September 2010.

The third recall affects 190,000 vehicles sold exclusively in Japan, specifically the Corolla Rumion and the Auris manufactured between October 2006 and October 2014. As for the issue, it supposedly involves faulty fuel suction plates that could lead to a leak and increase the risk of the car catching fire.

Toyota Motor Philippines has not issued any advisory as to whether any Philippine-market model is affected.
