Sounds like more hype B$ to me.

TOKYO—Toyota is recalling nearly 1.7 million vehicles around the world for various defects that may cause fuel leakage -- the latest in quality control woes for the Japanese automaker.


Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it was recalling a wide range of models, including the IS and GS Lexus luxury models in North America and the Avensis sedan and station wagon models in Europe.

There were no accidents suspected of being related to the defects, according to Toyota. Toyota said it had received 77 complaints overseas, 75 of them in North America, and more than 140 reports in Japan.

The largest number of the affected vehicles was in Japan at nearly 1.3 million vehicles, the second-largest recall in this nation's history and involving two different problems.

In one problem, an improper installation of a sensor to measure fuel pressure may cause the bolt to loosen as a result of engine vibration over time, and possibly cause fuel leakage, the company said.

That problem also affects 280,000 IS and GS Lexus cars sold abroad, 255,000 of them in North America and 10,000 in Europe.

That same problem was also found in the Crown and Mark X models sold in Japan.

The second problem, which affects 141,000 Avensis cars sold in Europe, was caused by irregular work on the fuel pipe, which may cause cracks and fuel leakage, Toyota said.

That problem was also found in 16 models sold in Japan, including the Noah subcompact, RAV4 sport-utility vehicle and Wish cars, it said.

Has anyone even been affected by this potential problem? I don't recall fuel leakage ever being an issue at least on CL. It sounds like another one of those play it way so safe Lexus recalls, but I'm really getting nervous this will hit resale eventually.

Another free tank of gas! At this point, it seems like Lexus has filled up my gas tank more times than I have. I just got done with the master cylinder fix last week and now this?!

Ouch. Another ding against Lexus and the IS/GS. Can't be that bad since it's a voluntary recall though.
