Yeah it’s been discussed earlier in this thread. 250 out of the 44,191 recalled vehicles will need a new engine. IMO this’s not a design issue, and the manufacturing issue in Toyota’s US plant has been fixed. Nothing to worry about.
On the list only one issue, engine block recall, caught my attention as others are minor, or really some of them are personal preference.
Over 44,000 cars and SUVs from the 2019 and 2020 model years which spread into many models of Toyota and Lexus, are being recalled due to this issue. But only about 250 out of the 44,191 recalled vehicles will actually need their engine replaced according to Toyota.
Because of a manufacturing error at a Toyota factory in Tennessee from Sep. to Dec, 2019 where the engine block manufactured may be cracked. Specifically a water flow meter at the factory failed while some engine blocks were being cast. As a result, these blocks did not cool properly, which caused cracks to develop.
This’s not a design issue, and the manufacturing issue has been fixed. Not a concern to me at all.
