Toyota has issued a recall on more than a quarter million Lexus model vehicles. All the recalls were in regards to a defective fuel line which could lead to fuel leakage. Yet another blow to Toyota and Lexus brand reliability standard. Expect recalls such as this to slow the grow of the manufacturer, set to overtake GM as the largest Automotive Manufacturer in the world.
In the United States, the latest Toyota recall involves 26,274 Lexus GS300, 5,429 Lexus IS250, and 2,640 Lexus IS350 vehicles. The recalled Toyota models were exported from Japan, and the same models are also being recalled in Canada, England, and Germany. There have been 39 cases of trouble involving recalled Toyotas in Japan but no reports of injuries. It was not immediately clear whether any problems have been reported elsewhere.
