Toyota to Recall 215,020 Lexus, Other Cars in Japan

December 10, 2007

TOKYO – Toyota Motor Corp. said on Wednesday it would recall 215,020 units of the Lexus GS, Crown, and three other high-end car models in Japan to fix a faulty fuel pipe that could lead to a fuel leakage, according to Reuters.

The recall covers Crown, Lexus GS350, Lexus IS250, Lexus IS350, and Mark X sedans manufactured between December 2003 and December 2005, Japan’s top automaker said in a filing with the transport ministry. No accident has been reported.

Another 49,000 of the Lexus models with the same design defect will be recalled in the United States, Britain, and Canada and other markets. Shares in Toyota fell two percent to 5,980 yen in late trade.
