Lexus IS (2011 – 2018)

Published on 24. 12. 2022

Problem description:

Due to the improper design of the flange attaching the vent tube to the fuel tank, a stress-related crack could develop on the outer surface of the flange and expand over time. This could result in a fuel leak, leading to an increased fire risk.

The 2011 – 2018 Lexus IS vehicles are affected by this recall.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Lexus dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
