Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 115,000 Lexus vehicles in the United States to address potential fuel leaks in the engine.
The recall covers 2006-2013 Lexus IS350, 2010-2014 Lexus IS350C, and 2007-2011 Lexus GS350 and GS450h models, Toyota said .
Vehicles covered by the recall are equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 gasoline engine, the company said in a statement.
“The diaphragm material in the fuel pulsation dampers in this engine may harden over time and crack, causing fuel to leak,” the company said.
A fuel leak can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.
A Toyota spokesperson would not comment on whether there are any injuries or deaths associated with the recall.
Lexus dealers will replace the fuel delivery pipe with a new one containing improved pulsation dampers. Owners will receive a notification by mail starting in August.
Safety recall information by VIN is available on Toyota’s website or through the NHTSA site.
