Toyota Motor Sales has announced a safety recall that involves approximately 214,500 Lexus vehicles sold in the U.S. and affected by ethanol fuel. The recall was launched with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall affects certain 2006, 2007 and 2008 model-year GS300/350, IS250/350 and LS 460/460L vehicles. Some ethanol fuels with a low moisture content may corrode the internal surface of the fuel delivery pipes. If this occurs, the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) may illuminate. Over time, the corrosion may create a pinhole in the fuel delivery pipes, resulting in fuel leakage. Dealers will replace the fuel delivery pipes with newly-designed components. As I understand it, no other Toyota or Lexus vehicles are involved.
