Toyota Recalls Continue with Lexus Models - Toyota Parts Blog

Lexus LS 460

Thought it was over? Well, whether you like it or not, the answer to that question is yes and no. No in the fact that nearly 17000 Lexus sedans were recalled because of an issue in/with the fuel system and other Toyota Parts involved. According to the NHTSA, during a crash test involving the Lexus HS 250h and a wall moving 50 mph, the vehicle would begin to dangerously leak fuel, which could obviously lead to disastrous fire hazards. Unfortunately, that’s not the only recall in the mix for Lexus. It seems as if another recall, this time of theLexus LS 460, could come about because of an engine stalling problem. It is important, however, to note that this recall has not yet gone to the dealerships, because Toyota is taking a closer look at the issue before it causes unnecessary worries with its already stretched customers. Also important, according to ““, is that the problem has seemed to originate from the Japan Home Market, but if recall action is taken, it will be worldwide.

So, you may be wondering. In what way does this age of recalls seem to be ending?

One of the biggest issues in both the government and consumer eye during the very large and messy floor mat recall was the swiftness and efficiency in which the company dealt with the issues at hand. In these more recent recalls, it is apparent that the company is doing a better job at reporting and dealing with problems. There will never be a complete end to recalls, but Toyota is doing everything in its power to make the recall procedure as pleasant as possible.
