Potential Fuel Leak

Due to the remnants of anti-corrosion plating, a fuel leak may develop from where the fuel pressure sensor is attached to the fuel delivery pipe. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will clean and reseal the area of the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern.

 

Unexpected Engine Stall

Many modern engines use a computer controlled mechanical system known as Variable-Valve Timing (VVT) to adjust engine valve timing based on operating conditions. Vehicles equipped with a V-6 engine and VVT are being recalled because bolts securing components of the VVT system could become loose due to normal impacts generated immediately after starting the engine when cold. The loose bolts could cause the VVT gear housing and sprocket to separate. This would cause the engine to stop while the vehicle is being driven, increasing the risk of a crash. Lexus dealers will replace the VVT unit on affected engines to correct this concern.

Accelerator Pedal May Become Stuck in Open Throttle Position

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. No owner notification schedule has be set at this time.

Very nice car, little lacking in the power. Brakes are a little soft. Love all the electronic gizmo's.
