Lexus Recalls 214,000 Vehicles


Recommended Posts

Did you know Lexus has a "sterling reputation for quality?" Yeah, me neither, but apparently LLN knew!

Toyota’s Lexus luxury brand has a sterling reputation for quality, but that doesn’t mean the Japanese brand isn’t without flaws. Proving that even mighty Toyota has a few chinks in the armor, Lexus has announced the recall of 214,500 vehicles in the U.S.

In coordination with the Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Lexus has announced the recall of 214,500 U.S. vehicles. The recall is due to a faulty fuel pipe, which could corrode and cause a leak over time. The use of ethanol fuels is believed to be the cause of the corrosion.

Thankfully, no fuel leaks have yet been reported. Toyota discovered the potential hazard via several suspicious engine warning lights.

The recall covers Lexus GS 300/350, IS 250/350 and LS 460/460L models produced between 2006 and 2008. Lexus will notify owners of the recall later this month.

Teehee. You aren't all that Toyota!

So it seems that even time, perception, vast improvements, leather, chrome, hand buffed paints, and all the modern technologies of the world can't hide the Toyopet at heart.

Since the Lexi are nothing but gussied up 'Yotas...should we expect a BEST EVER Toyota recall soon? They should be using the same material for the fuel lines in the Toyotas. no?

I did not read the Article, so forgive me if this was covered in the story.

They are also recalling Yaris. According to Peter DeLorenzo,

"Toyota is recalling more than 1.35 million Vitz (Yaris in the U.S.), Belta and Ractis cars globally to fix a defect in the seat belt, the exhaust system or both. 525,898 vehicles built from January 2005 to April 2008 in Japan will be recalled, as well as a combined 830,000 units in Europe, North America and other markets. It's clear now that Toyota's desire to become the No. 1 global automaker became an obsession, and their formerly impeccable quality reputation has been tarnished decisively."

Not good for Toyota but the Toyota faithfull like my mother-in-law will never hear of this recall and continue to lambast my GM cars while extolling the virtues of Toyotas.

So, adding all of this up, Toyota INC managed to recall 1,570,398 cars today. This is on top of the ongoing buy back of Toyota Tacoma's...trucks that they are taking directly to crushers to eliminate...Estimated at 813,000 trucks. We are up to 2,383,398 cars and trucks and we are not even into February yet.

Quality? :Toyota:

  • The Jeep Gladitator gets a gentle refresh for 2024

    Jeep is understandably reluctant to mess with success, and the Jeep Gladiator has been one of the brand's greatest success stories in the last decade.  So when it came time to give the Gladiator a nip-tuck, Jeep went in with the gentlest of hands. The biggest visual update is a refresh of Jeep's iconic 7-slot grille, windshield-integrated trail-ready stealth antenna, and seven all-new wheel designs. Inside is a redefined interior with more technology and amenities, including available 12-wa


    GMC Upsizes the Acadia for 2024; New 2.5L Turbo-4

    GMC caused a stir in 2016 when it downsized the Acadia in 2017 from its previous near-Yukon length. That downsize brought the Acadia down to be inline in size with the contemporary Jeep Grand Cherokee.  In the years since, the Grand Cherokee has grown and GMC is matching that with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Inches matter in this class and in that the Acadia gains (back) 10.6 inches in length and 3.2 inches in height. That equates to 80% more space behind the third row and 36% more space behind th


    Cadillac Refreshes the CT5 with an Updated Look for 2025

    Today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Cadillac unveiled the refreshed Cadillac CT5 sedan.  CT5 retail sales have been on an upswing of late, increasing over 35%.  In a time when sedan sales are stagnating or disappearing entirely, Cadillac's positive numbers have given hope that the luxury sedan market isn't quite dead yet. The refresh of the CT5 begins with the exterior. A new larger, bolder grille is flanked by new vertically stacked headlamps and Cadillac's sign
