2006 Lexus GS300 RecallsPotential Fuel Leak

The plastic pad embedded in the floor carpet may interfere with the operation of the accelerator pedal. As a result, it may become stuck in a partially open position. A stuck accelerator can result in unintended vehicle speed, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will modify the plastic pad in the floor carpet.

The fuel pressure sensor monitors fuel pressure for optimum engine performance and emission controls. Lexus has found that some of these sensors can loosen from the fuel line, which may cause the sealing gasket to leak fuel. To prevent this from occurring in the future, your Lexus dealer will ensure that these sensors are properly fastened. No schedule of owner notification is available at this time.
