Recall 14V647000

Potential Fuel Leak

Recall Details

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.

 

Our Quick Take

A fuel leak may develop in the area of the fuel filler pipe, which runs between the fuel tank and the gas cap.

What Should You Do?

Lexus will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning December 2014. If you don't receive notification in a timely manner and believe you should have, please contact your Lexus dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
