Fuel Pump Issue Means Recall for Most 2019 Lexus Models

Lexus LS 500 Recall

Lexus USA has announced a safety recall for a number of models due to a potential fuel pump malfunction — here’s a breakdown of the vehicles affected:

  • 2018-2019 LS 500, LC 500, RC 350, RC 300, GS 350, IS 300, ES 350, LX 570, GX 460, and RX 350
  • 2019 NX 300, RX 350L, and GS 300

From the press release:

The subject vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump which may stop operating. If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and the engine may run rough.

This can result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.

All known owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by mail by mid-March, and the repair will be performed by Lexus dealerships at no charge.

Is the fuel pump in the gas tank? Just wondering why the GS350 and RC350 are listed, as well as the IS300, but not the IS350.

Honda also replaced tons of the in-tank fuel pump of the 10th generation Accord, looks like they have the same supplier :)

I found out some more. Apparently it was only a very small batch with the issue. Unfortunately they don’t know which ones. So they are recalling every last one to make sure the problem is solved.

I applaud the effort.
