Lexus Announces Safety Recall
on Select Vehicles
Torrance Ca. – Toyota Motor Sales,
USA, Inc. will launch a Safety Recall with the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) involving approximately
214,500 Lexus vehicles sold in the United States.
On certain 2006 through 2008 model
year GS300/350, IS250/350, and LS460/460L vehicles, Lexus has
determined that some ethanol fuels with a low moisture content
may corrode the internal surface of the fuel delivery pipes. If
this condition occurs, the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) in
the combination meter may illuminate. Over time, the corrosion
may create a pinhole in the fuel delivery pipes resulting in
Lexus dealers will replace the
fuel delivery pipes with newly designed components. No other
Lexus or Toyota vehicles are involved.
