Fuel leak In Engine Compartment

A fuel line in the engine compartment may develop a leak, which can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect and replace any fuel lines in question free of charge to resolve the concern.

Vehicle Directional Control Systems May Not Function as Expected

The brake system contains an actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure to the brake at each wheel. An electrical component inside the actuator may experience an increased electrical resistance resulting in the illumination of various warning lights, including those for the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Antilock Brake System (ABS), and Traction Control system. As a result, these systems may not function as expected, reducing directional control assistance and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software for the Skid Control module to correct this concern.

The Gas Pedal May Become Stuck Wide Open

The gas pedal can become stuck in the wide open position when trapped under an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat. A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speed and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will modify or replace the accelerator and replace any Lexus driver's floor mat not specified for the vehicle.

It is well made, smooth riding, has a beautiful interior, and gives me confidence with driving. ...
