In June 2020 the automaker recalled about 1.4 million vehicles worldwide for the same fuel pump issues.
The 2020 fuel pump recall was ordered after manufacturer DENSO recalled more than 2 million of the pumps which were installed in vehicles from multiple automakers. DENSO said impellers in the fuel pumps could absorb fuel and deform, allowing the impellers to hit and damage the pumps.
