Lexus GS300 Problems

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an O2 sensor heater fault. Most commonly the affected O2 sensor will need to be replaced to correct this concern.

Clunking noises from the front suspension may be caused by the top front shock mount, which has been redesigned.

I noticed the noise level has increased significantly while adjusting seating/driving position. Also the steering occasionally became heavy while making turns.

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.

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.

Ethanol fuels with a low moisture content will corrode the internal surface of the aluminum fuel delivery pipes. As the condition progresses, the Check Engine Light may illuminate and/or a fuel leak could develop under the hood. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel delivery pipes as necessary. This recall is expected to begin during February 2009. The Lexus recall number is 9LA.
