Lexus Ireland Unlimited Company extends recall of certain IS, LS, GS, LC & RX models of passenger vehicles
October 30, 2020
Lexus Ireland Unlimited Company is extending an active recall campaign initiated in March 2020 which can be found on the CCPC’s website at the following link. The recall extension relates to the below models which were manufactured between February 2014 and September 2019.
Models: IS, LS, GS, LC & RX model vehicles.
There are a further 155 vehicles affected in the Irish Market. The total number of affected vehicles is 320.
The safety recall involves vehicles which are equipped with a low-pressure fuel pump, located in the fuel tank that supplies fuel pressure to the fuel injection system. These fuel pumps may include impellers which have been manufactured with lower density. If these impellers are also of a design with lower surface strength or of a different design but were exposed to production solvent drying for longer periods of time, higher levels of surface cracking may occur. In this condition, excessive fuel absorption may occur, resulting in impeller deformation. In some cases, the impeller may deform to a point that creates interference with the fuel pump body to cause the fuel pump to become inoperative. An inoperative fuel pump due to these conditions, could result in illumination of check engine and master warning indicators, rough engine running, engine no start and/or vehicle stall while driving at low speed. However, in rare instances, vehicle stall could occur while driving at higher speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
