"The subject vehicles are equipped with a low-pressure 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 may result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted".

I received one on the car that was totaled in a wreck 18 months ago. Haven't received one on our current ES. It is possible this effected only initial production vehicles.

mine replaced in Sept 2020 all is well. LC500
Question: Did yours fail, or was it replaced because of the factory recall? I was just notified by Lexus - and the recall stated no fix yet available. Thanks.

I just received my Lexus recall letter.........advising that the pump may fail anytime and that there is not yet a fix for the problem. My ES is one year old.......a 2019.

Update: I received a recall notice a couple days ago. Same story - no fix yet - car could stall and not restart. Gave me pause as we prepared to drive an hour to Louisville to be with the in-laws on Christmas morning, with weather 14 degrees Fahrenheit and snowing. We drove the NX instead. This recall has been in effect for quite a while now. Lexus needs to work out a fix asap!

I got letters up till I was told to set up appoint and was taken care of in 4hrs. No failure occurred. I believe these are not being massed produced so according to date of mfg, they are notifying those that fall under the recall.

I got the letter in June 2020 for my 2018 LS500, fixed the next month. The car never gave me any trouble over that (I only got it in March though).
