The automaker Toyota has issued another round of recalls for its 2022-2023 Tundra full-size pickup, this occasion due to complications with the engine, the company revealed on Thursday. This recall extends to the new Lexus LX, encompassing a total of 102,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles within the U.S. The initial report of the recall came from Pickup Truck + SUV Talk.

According to Toyota, residual particles from the machining process may not have been adequately removed from the engine, leading to possible engine pinging, unstable engine performance, or an issue with the engine starting or remaining operational. As of now, the NHTSA has yet to publish the notice, so information regarding the solution and timeline remains limited.

Toyota has plans to alert vehicle owners about the remedy for this recall by the end of July.

This recall marks the ninth instance for the newly revamped Toyota Tundra pickup truck, tarnishing a reputation typically associated with dependable truck performance and engine durability. The Tundra, redesigned in 2022, abandoned the V-8 engine in favor of a selection of twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engines, which include a hybrid variant. At this time, it is not determined if the recall includes both engine types.

Previous recalls have varied in severity from minor, like incorrect labels regarding load capacity, to more serious issues. Earlier in the year, in February, Toyota called back 280,000 Tundras along with Sequoia and Lexus LX models due to a transmission issue where the vehicle could remain in gear while placed in neutral, posing a risk of unintended movement. During August 2023, over 168,000 Tundras were recalled due to a risk of a fuel line leak. Shortly after the new model’s release in June 2022, it faced a recall for a risk of the rear axle housing detaching from the shaft.
