Toyota is recalling nearly 170,000 of its vehicles due to a potential fire risk.
In a recall notice posted to its website, the company announced that it was voluntarily recalling certain Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tundra Hybrid vehicles because the plastic fuel tube “could move and rub against a brake line,” causing the vehicle to develop a fuel leak and increasing the risk of fire.
This is Toyota’s largest recall of the year, according to CNN Business.
