UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT), the distributor of Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Malaysia, has announced a Special Service Campaign (SSC) to replace the fuel pump in the Toyota Avanza. This SSC is an expansion of an earlier campaign as safety of Toyota customers remains a top priority.
There is a possibility that the fuel pumps in the affected vehicles could stop operating. If this happens, engine power hesitation might happen which could result in the vehicle stalling or unable to restart. There will also be warning light or message displayed on the instrument panel in this incident.
According to information from Toyota Motor Corporation, approximately 3,923 units of Toyota Avanza manufactured from October 2017 to June 2019 are affected by this campaign. All other models not mentioned are not affected.
UMWT will officially notify all affected vehicle owners to replace the fuel pump unit at no charge.
If you need further information or have questions, you can also contact any authorised Toyota Service Centre, or call the Toyota Freephone: 1800-8-TOYOTA (869682).
