450 vehicles affected

The V8 Lexus GS F, LC500 and RC F have been recalled this week, over concerns a faulty fuel pump could cause a fuel leak.

Lexus says affected vehicles are fitted with two high-pressure fuel pumps, one of which could be susceptible to damage from fuel pressure resonance that occurs "under specific operating conditions".

If the condition occurs, the company says "abnormal noise and vibration" could be experienced and, in the worst case scenario, a fatigue crack could develop – resulting in a fuel leak – posing a fire hazard.

Recalled vehicles were produced between September 2014 and December 2017. A VIN list can be viewed here.

Owners will be contacted by Lexus Australia, and will be advised to make an appointment with their local dealer to arrange the replacement of both fuel pumps, free of charge. Repairs are estimated to take three hours.
