Toyota Motor North America has recalled 11,800 2018 Toyota Camry mid-size sedans and about 9,900 Lexus models for fueling system problems.
During assembly, the 2018 Camry sedans may have had fuel pipes and hoses in the engine compartment that weren't properly connected. This condition could lead to a fuel odor or fuel leak. A fuel leak near an ignition source could increase the risk of a fire.
Toyota dealers will inspect the fuel pipes and a fuel hoses and properly connect them at no cost. Notifications to owners will go out in March.
Affected Lexus vehicles include the 2015 to 2018 Lexus RC F, 2016 to 2018 Lexus GS F and 2018 Lexus LC 500 vehicles. The vehicles are equipped with two high-pressure fuel pumps that could be damaged over time and lead to a fuel leak.
Lexus dealers will replace both pumps at no cost. Owners will be notified in April.
