The Toyota`s subsidiary Lexus, has recently issued a recall for 423,000 of its models, which were reported to come with fire risk.
According to the manufacturer, 423,000 Lexus models will have to return to dealerships due to a fire risk, caused by the gasket seating surfaces.
The seal between the pressure sensor and the fuel line might default, due to the plating plates on the gasket seating surfaces, which might lead to fire risk and cause a lot of damage and casualties.
So far, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not confirmed any complaint or any injuries happening because of the issue.
The affected Lexus models refer to the 2006 to 2011 IS and GS, the 2007 to 2010 LS, the 2010 IS C and the 2008 to 2010 IS F models.
The 423,000 units recalled in the US represent one of the three global recalls issued by Toyota, with more than 1.67 million cars to be affected.
The dealers will replace the gasket and will reinstall the fuel pressure sensor back to its place.
