In early March 2022, Toyota first encountered a report in the US about an engine stalling issue. An investigation revealed seized crankshaft main bearings.

By July, more reports surfaced regarding V35A engines with damaged bearings, leading Toyota to suspect machining debris might be the culprit. This prompted improvements in the cleanliness process at manufacturing plants.

By September 2023, there was a notable rise in engine failure reports due to suspected debris, leading to a review of manufacturing and validation processes. In February 2024, Toyota found that even undamaged engines could be at risk from machining debris.

According to warranty claims and field reports, Toyota identified an issue affecting certain 2022-2023 model-year vehicles in the United States.

In Canada, a safety recall was announced for over 9,000 Toyota trucks and Lexus SUVs. While a permanent fix is still under development, Toyota has listed parts for potential replacements, suggesting a significant cost associated with the recall.

Owners will be notified by mail in late July but can check their vehicle’s status earlier using their VIN on the Toyota recall website. The recall covers vehicles produced between November 2021 and February 2023 for the Toyota Tundra and Sequoia models, and from July 2021 to November 2022 for the Lexus LX 600.
