Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling almost 115,000 Lexus vehicles equipped with 3.5L V-6 2GR-FSE gasoline engines for a fuel delivery pipe issue.
The recall includes 2007-2011 Lexus GS350 and GS450h, 2006-2013 Lexus IS350, and 2010-2014 Lexus IS350C vehicles because the diaphragms in the fuel pulsation dampers may harden over time and possibly fracture, causing a leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
To fix the problem, Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel delivery pipe with a new pipe that features advanced pulsation dampers, at no cost to owners.
This recall begins August 9. Owners can reach Lexus customer service at (800) 255-3987. Toyota's number for this recall is JLF.
