When accelerating on highway check engine light started flashing and engine running rough. Pulled over and stopped vehicle turned off ignition. Restarted vehicle and light was out no longer running rough. Toyota dealer checked computer, cylinder #2 misfired 47 times & cylinder #3 misfired 3 times. They said they could not find what had created this problem and still charged me for engine diagnostics.

The vehicle every time I fuel either does start afterwards or it would start and drive for about 3-6 minutes then it will stall. The very first time it happened was on the highway which I didn-€™t know why my car had stall but now that it has done it right at the fuel pump and also more often than not. I tried using other gas stations just to rule out bad fue but it has been like this for the past 6 month. I have taken it to Toyota MCDONOUGH in Georgia and they could not give a diagnostic because the check engine light does not stays on and they said they can-€™t replicate the problem.

Toyota dealer knowingly sold me a 2018 40K miles Tacoma with an open recall regarding failing low pressure fuel pump that can stall at high speed. This was not disclosed at time of purchase. We live a great distance from dealer on a remote island making returning to dealer a considerable hardship. Dealer keeps saying 'part is coming in a couple days' would like to clear this up asap.

Driving vehicle on a side street going approx 20 miles per hour. Car started shaking and lost majority of power. Was able to get car back to residence (only got a couple of blocks away) when heading to destination. Had vehicle towed next day to same dealership who had recently replaced fuel pump under a recall (paperwork for this recall is what was experienced /stalling dangers). Dealership told us not fuel pump but wiring harness needed replacement because rodents ate the wiring ( soy bean covering on newer vehicles )and engine lost power because of this. Thank goodness not on a highway going 75 mph. When this happened as we very well could of been. Told we need to deter these rodents from continuing any more damage. Wonder why company would use a product. Thank you.

This was a recall dated January 13, 2020. I feel due to the nature of this recall that a remedy should have happened by now. But recall incomplete as of 10/17/2020. Summary: The subject vehicles are equipped with a low-pressure fuel pump which may stop operating. If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and the engine may run rough. This may result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. Safety risk: If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.

The manufacturer has exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall remedy (see below). My truck has been sitting in my driveway (per the instruction of autonation fort myers) since March 10, 2020. I was provided a rental through autonation in fort myers, fl (at their expense) until the remedy was available to consumers. I was advised that the remedy would be available at the end of March, beginning of April. Then I was advised that it wouldn't be until the end of September, middle of October. Meanwhile, my truck is sitting in my driveway accumulating additional issues because I was instructed not to drive it. I was also advised that multiple vehicle types have already been remedied and that Tacoma's have not.

Notice received in January of 2020 that my 2018 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck has a defective fuel pump that is located in the fuel tank (NHTSA safety recall no. 20V-012). It is now September 21st, 2020 and still no fix for this problem. This is unacceptable. Why has this problem not been resolved?

I received a recall notification from Toyota about a problem with the low flow fuel pump in February of 2020 and there still isn't a remedy. This needs to be addressed. When it was recalled because it has a chance to stall out while driving at higher speeds. And people like myself don't have another vehicle to drive while Toyota takes there time in developing a remedy. It seems like to me its taking to long to get the remedy. Its been over 6 months. How is this possible.

A problem with the fuel pump on my 2018 Toyota Tacoma was identified in early 2020. It is now September 2020 and I have yet to receive notice that my vehicle can be scheduled for repair or replacement. In the meantime I continue to drive a vehicle that has the potential for stall or possible crash if the engine quits.

Vehicle may stall while driving. Is the recall for the fuel pump. That needs replacing. I get warning lights. The check engine light goes on. I also get a low fuel pressure light that also goes on. I've gotten the recall notice a year ago. And every time I go to Toyota for an oil change they say that there's no fix yet for the problem. Its been a year already. What are they waiting for. For me to stall while am driving and kill someone or me. Unacceptable, am sick and tired of talking to the dealer. They seem to have no attention of fixing this dangerous recall
