Another recall for the 2018 Camry. The pistons are the wrong size.

Very weird. I would expect that the amount of 'too large' is in the 100th of a millimeter range.

Just thought this one up inspired by this. I'm a Toyota fan, but come on!


I urge people not to wait 100K to change out the fluid in their transfer case units. -Kestas

Proud of Toyota for getting out ahead of this one. Gonna be expensive, but less so than if ignored!

Apparently not quite. GM released many many v8 engibes with piston of wrong size. Bow they have piston slap.
From what I have read many trucks ran over 100k like that.

I see recalls like this it makes me happy they are admitting their mistakes instead of putting it off as a TSB and have the owners pound sand.

I agree. Mitsubishi got in trouble years ago for hiding defects. Hyundai and Kia built a large number of bad motors and just put a longer warranty on them.

That was the result of short, bulk-fit pistons with uncoated skirts. GM later just coated the skirts. "Back in the day" pistons were, in many instances, hand-fit to the bores and skirts were long, which is why piston slap wasn't a "thing".

Looks like Toyota replacing the whole car? That is good.
