    Subject: Safety Recall J0G – Remedy
    2018 Model Year Camry Fuel Delivery Pipe

    On February 14, 2018, Toyota filed a Defect Information Report (DIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Recall on certain 2018 model year Camry vehicles.

    Condition:
    During the assembly process, there is the possibility that the fuel pipes and the fuel hoses in the engine compartment were not properly connected. This condition could lead to a fuel odor or fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak could increase the risk of a fire.

    Remedy:
    Any authorized Toyota dealer will inspect the fuel delivery pipes and fuel hoses for proper installation and, if necessary, properly connect them at NO CHARGE to the vehicle owner.

    Covered Vehicles:
    There are approximately 11,800 vehicles covered by this Safety Recall. There are approximately 70 vehicles distributed to Puerto Rico involved in this Safety Recall.

    Owner Letter Mailing Date:
    Toyota will notify owners by late March 2018

    NOTE (Customers who live in the state of California)
    The state of California requires the completion of Safety Recalls / Service Campaigns on emission related parts prior to vehicle registration renewal. In addition, the State requires that every vehicle must pass an emission test (SMOG Check) every two years and before it is sold. Without the completion of this NO CHARGE Safety Recall the California Air Resources Board (CARB) will not allow your vehicle to be registered. State of California Regulations require Toyota to provide the Department of Motor Vehicles with a record of all vehicles that have not had the Safety Recall completed.

    Your Toyota dealer will provide you with a Vehicle Emissions Recall Proof of Correction Form after the campaign has been completed. Please ensure you retain this form, because the DMV may require that you supply proof that the campaign has been completed during your vehicle registration renewal process.

    Which and how many vehicles are covered by this Safety Recall?
    There are approximately11,800 vehicles covered by this Safety Recall.

    How long will the repair take?
    The repair takes approximately 45 minutes. However, depending upon the dealer’s work schedule, it may be necessary to make the vehicle available for a longer period of time.

    What if I have additional questions or concerns?
    If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1- 888-270-9371 Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Saturday 7:00 am to 4:30 pm Central Time.
