Lexus IS350 Recalls

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or in some cases replace the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

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.
