The recall notice advises that the subject vehicles are equipped with a resin fuel tank that contains a resin fuel inlet pipe.

There is the possibility that the resin weld between the fuel tank and the fuel inlet pipe may not be to specification.

What are the hazards?

A portion of the resin weld between the fuel tank and the fuel inlet pipe could peel off, causing fuel leakage and fuel odour.

In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak could increase the risk of a fire.

What should affected owners do?

Owner’s will be contacted by Lexus, inviting them to make an appointment with their preferred Lexus Dealer to have the fuel tank replaced free of charge.
