Today, Lexus announced a recall on 2006-model-year GS 300 and IS 250/350 models. Approximately 34,000 cars are involved in the recall over two fuel pipes in high-stress areas that can crack over time. Only one case has been reported, with no accidents, the company says.

The recall involves both rear- and all-wheel-drive versions of the GS and IS. Owners will receive notifications in the mail in December and can visit their Lexus dealer to have newly designed fuel pipes installed at no charge.

wait... you mean they're responding after only one incident? That doesn't sound like the Toyota we know!

(wonder how many "unofficial" incidents there are...)

Maybe they realize finally it's better to recall now than later.

I wonder what my import-humping former manager thinks about all this.

I gave him a neverending stream of crap for driving a RAV-4. The idiot would defend to the death his "domestic=bad, import=good" perception.

Sometimes the recalls are done with only 1 issue coming up, because the manufacture knows of the defect and that others will be affected over time.

Wow! I had no idea Toyota could admit a recall. You could knock me over with a feather. I am glad to see that they are letting owners know of stuff like this.
