Lexus Cars Recalled Over Fuel Line Fault

More than 500 Lexus cars have been recalled over a concern with a fuel delivery pipe.

The manufacturer is recalling some 1.7 million cars worldwide, with most being in the US and Far East. It is thought that there are around 514 of the models concerned in Ireland.

Lexus say there is a concern that a fault in a fuel delivery pipe could lead to a fuel leak while driving.

The models being recalled date between 2006 and 2010 and include Lexus IS 250; IS-F; GS 450 H and LS models.

Owners will be contacted by Lexus Ireland to have the remedial work carried out.
