Lexus is recalling 214,500 autos

Toyota`s Lexus brand of luxury has an excellent reputation on quality, but this does not mean the brand from Japan is not without any flaws. So, proving that Toyota has chinks on armor, Lexus announced it will recall 214,500 cars in America.

In the Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration coordination, Lexus announced the 214,500 U.S. autos recall. This recall's due to the faulty pipe of fuel, corroding, causing a leak in time. The ethanol fuels use is believed now to be the corrosion cause.

Thankfully, no leaks of fuel have been reported yet. Toyota has discovered the hazard potential via a few suspicious warning lights on the engine.

This recall is covering Lexus IS 250/350, LS 460/460L and GS 300/350 units made between 2006 - 2008. Lexus is notifying the owners at the end of this month about this recall.
