2018 Toyota Camry Recalled for Unusual Engine Issue

Toyota is recalling 1,730 Camry sedans in the U.S. for having larger pistons in their engines.

According to the Japanese automaker, the affected vehicle’s engines could have pistons larger in diameter than the original specification. The assembly error could cause the sedans to run rough, emit smoke, and create an abnormal sound. In addition, owners will get warning lights on the dash and a possible reduction in power. In extreme cases, the Camry could stall, increasing the risk of an accident.
