Toyota Recalls Camrys Due to Fuel Leaks and Possible Fires
Toyota recalls 11,800 Camry cars because of bad connections of the fuel pipes and fuel hoses.

— About 11,800 model year 2018 Toyota Camry cars are recalled due to a risk of fires from fuel leaks.

Toyota said problems occurred during the assembly process that caused improper connections of the fuel pipes and fuel hoses in the engine compartments.

The bad connections will allow gas to leak, or at the least gas odors that will be noticeable to occupants. Any gas that leaks has the potential to cause a fire if the fuel makes contact with an ignition source.

The cars are equipped with V6 engines that contain two fuel pipes that connect to two fuel supply hoses. Other models aren't affected because they use a different fuel line structure or use a different assembly process to connect the fuel pipes to the fuel supply hoses.

Toyota will start contacting owners March 30, 2018, with instructions to get the cars to dealers to have the hoses and pipes connected properly.

Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 888-270-9371. Toyota's number for this recall is J0G.
