Lexus LX570 recalled due to a faulty fuel pump that could cause a loss of power.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issues a Product Safety Australia recall on the Lexus LX570 (URJ201) affecting 226 vehicles sold between 2013 and 2015.
The safety recall notice states that the fuel pump on affected vehicles may stop operating.
“If the fuel pump stops working, warning lights and messages may display on the instrument panel, and the engine may not run smoothly. This can result in the vehicle stalling and the vehicle may not be able to be restarted.”
The recall notice points out the potential hazards as a loss of power while driving that could increase the risk of a crash, which may cause injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
Lexus will contact affected owners in writing with an interim notification advising of this safety recall and, once parts become available, it will request that owners make an appointment at a Lexus dealer for repairs, free of charge.
Replacement parts are expected to become progressively available from June 2020. In the meantime, affected owners are advised to ensure their contact details with Lexus are up to date so that future communications can be received.
For further information, consumers can contact their Lexus dealer directly or phone the Lexus Customer Assistance Centre on 1800 023 009 (Monday to Friday, 8am-6pm AEST).
