Lexus LS500/LS500h/LS600h (2013 – 2019)

Published on 21 March 2020

Due to a manufacturing defect, surface cracking may occur on the impeller of the low-pressure fuel pump. Consequently, the impeller may deform, causing the fuel pump to become inoperative and the engine to stall, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Lexus LS500/LS500h/LS600h models affected by this recall are equipped with a low-pressure fuel pump, located in the fuel tank and manufactured between 2. 9. 2013 – 11. 5. 2019.
