PhotoToyota Motor North America is recalling 1,730 model year 2018 Camrys.

The vehicle’s engine may be equipped with pistons from a particular production period produced with a diameter larger than the specification. In certain conditions, this may cause the vehicle to run rough, create an abnormal sound, emit smoke from the exhaust, and illuminate warning lights and messages.

In some cases, a reduction of power may occur and the engine could stop running, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Toyota dealers will check the production date code of the pistons in the engine. If involved pistons are found, the engine will be replaced with a new one at no cost to customers.

All known owners will receive a notification by first class mail by late May.

Consumers with questions may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
