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.

 

Windshield Wipers May Stop Working

The nuts that secure the windshield wiper arms may not have been tightened to the correct specification during vehicle assembly and as a result, if the wipers are restricted by an external load such as a build up of snow, one or both or the wipers may become inoperative. Inoperative wipers could reduce driver visibility and increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Lexus dealers will install new wiper arm nuts to correct this concern.

A Fuel Leak Can Develop at the Fuel Pressure Sensor Connection

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.

I bought my 2006 IS250 in July of 2010 w/ only 30K on it. Since then I"ve added another 40K. Replaced water pump at 63K, but no other mechanical issues. Front seats are not very supportive and the trunk release/gas cap release buttons have fallen through the dash. Car looks great and gets pretty good mileage. Front wheels stay covered in brake dust. Nice car, but too much of a price premium for...
Very reliable and fun car to drive. My 2006 250 manual has always had a noisy transmission with over 140K miles. Brakes are dusty. I've changed oil, tires, battery and exhaust. Mirrors are crap, rearview and sides. Fun to drive, but no power. Invest in good tires for best handling. Snows make it almost impossible to spin out in winter weather.
