Toyota recalls millions of vehicles in U.S. over ‘Toyota Hummer’ recall
More than two million vehicles were recalled in the U.K., Canada and Mexico due to the “Toyota H2” brand of compact SUV, according to a statement from the automaker.
The recall covers more than 2.6 million vehicles in North America and the U, which include models from the 2013 and 2017 Toyota Camry, Lexus ES 350, and Camry L, among others.
Toyota has also said it is recalling up to 50,000 Camry and Camaro models.
The company said the recalls were made possible by “improper engine design and improper ignition timing,” according to the statement.
The automaker said it will replace the affected vehicles with a new model and expects to issue a new recall for the next year.
The automaker also said that if a new vehicle is required for the same problem, it can issue a second recall for that vehicle.
The recalls were the largest in Toyota’s history, surpassing the 4 million recalled by Toyota for the 2016 Prius hybrid.
The problem was first reported in January, and the automakers stated that there was “no indication” of a connection to the H2.
The Toyota company said it would continue to inspect and inspect all recalled vehicles and to provide updates on the recall.
