As a result of customer feedback in other markets worldwide, Lexus has today announced it would recall a number of its Lexus IS 250 models in the UK to carry out modifications to their fuel systems.
The issue affecting certain Lexus IS 250 petrol engine models, produced between August 2007 and February 2009, is related to the fuel pressure sensor. Due to possible insufficient tightening, the fuel pressure sensor could loosen and in very rare cases fuel could leak.
There have been no reports of accidents related to this condition.
The repair involves retightening the fuel pressure sensor. If the fuel is leaking, the repair will involve replacing the fuel pressure sensor gasket. The job will take approximately one hour to complete, or three hours if the gasket needs to be replaced, at no cost to the customer.
Approximately 3,100 UK registered Lexus IS 250 vehicles are affected by this recall.Published 4 January 2011
