Lexus have announced two voluntary recalls for its Lexus IS, GS and RX models. The first recall is due to a faulty brake master cylinder on the Lexus IS, GS and RX models built between February 2003 and November 2005. It is thought around approximately 15,400 cars in the UK are affected and if the fault should occur the driver will be notified by a low brake warning light. Lexus say the brakes will continue to work normally for over two hundred miles.
The second recall affects the Lexus GS model and only those built between September 2004 and February 2006. This recall is due to a faulty fuel pump which may stop working and prevent fuel from reaching the engine; it is thought around 2081 cars are affected.
Belinda Poole, Lexus Director, said "we apologise for any inconvenience or concern these recalls may cause our customers. Our Lexus Centres will be liaising with our customers to carry out the recall repair procedures as promptly as possible, with all work undertaken by expertly trained Lexus service personnel."
