Lexus Recalls 115,000 Cars Over Fuel Leak Risk

Lexus has announced a recall of 115,000 vehicles in the United States that are a possible risk of fuel leaks and vehicle fires.

About the Lexus Vehicle Fire Recall

According to CNET, Lexus stated is that “the diaphragm material in the fuel pulsation dampers in this engine (3.5-Liter V6 engine) may harden over time and crack, causing fuel to leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.”

The company states that it’ll fix the affected vehicles by replacing the fuel delivery pipe with a new one that contains “improved pulsation dampers.” The service will be performed free of charge.

Owners should expect to receive notification via mail beginning in early August.

  • 2006-2013 350 sedans
  • 2010-2014 350C convertibles
