Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)

What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing issue the resin weld between the fuel tank and fuel tank inlet pipe could peel off. This may lead to a fuel leak when the tank is full or being refuelled. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may cause a vehicle fire.

If this was to occur, vehicle occupants may identify a fuel odour when driving.

What are the hazards?

A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicle have been contacted by TMCA and vehicles are grounded at Lexus Dealers until parts become available for rectification. The rectification involves the replacement of the fuel tank and is free of charge.
