    Toyota and Lexus Recall Vehicles for Fuel-Line Issues

      Toyota and Lexus Recall Vehicles for Fuel-Line Issues Toyota announced it is recalling 21,700 Toyota and Lexus cars in two separate recalls for problems with the fuel line that have the potential to cause a fire. Toyota is recalling roughly 11,800 of its 2018 Camry sedans because it’s possible that the fuel pipes and the fuel hoses in the engine compartment were not properly connected during assembly. This could lead to a fuel odor or leak, which—in the presence of an ignition source—could increase the risk of a fire.

    In the initial information released by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Ram ’s parent company, it’s said that, in certain vehicles, occupants can inadvertently shift the gear selector out of ‘ park ’.

Voluntary recalls are recalls that the automaker issues on its own. Sometimes, the feds will catch wind of a potential issue, investigate it and summarily compel an automaker to issue a recall. That's not the case here -- FCA caught the issue and is making moves to remedy it.

The issue stems from the column shifter on the aforementioned vehicles. A part called the brake transmission shift interlock, which works to ensure the vehicle is not shifted out of park without first engaging the brake, might overheat. If that happens, the shifter could be moved out of park without pressing the brake or even without putting a key in the ignition. This is, quite obviously, a rollaway hazard.

The overheating "has been linked" to owners leaving their feet on the brake pedal while idling in park. While waiting for the recall to begin, Ram has advised owners to set the parking brake each and every time the vehicle is put in park.

Ram is currently developing a remedy, so it's unclear how it will solve the issue at the moment. Nevertheless, dealers and owners will start receiving notifications at the end of March.

In 2016, Fiat Chrysler recalled some 800,000 vehicles in the US because owners were having a hard time understanding how a strange rocker-style shifter works (it has since been phased out). Last year, FCA recalled 7,800 Challengers for a software bug that wouldn't shift the transmission into park even though the owner moved the shift lever to P.

The Lincoln MKZ is included, as wellThe second-generation Ford Fusion might not be as fresh as the latest entries from Honda and Toyota, but it's still a solid car. The 325-hp Fusion Sport is also the only car in its class that pairs a V-6 with all-wheel drive. That said, if you own a second-gen Ford Fusion, you should definitely check to see if it's part of Ford's latest recall. Otherwise, the steering wheel might just fall off.
