Mazda Recalls Certain Model Year 2009-2010 Mazda6 Vehicles

Toyota Motor Corporation announces separate recall involving certain vehicles not sold in North America

Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., Torrance, CA – Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc.,  announced that it will conduct a voluntary Safety Recall involving approximately 245,000 2006 through 2007 Lexus GS 300/350, 2006 through early 2009 Lexus IS 250, and 2006 through early 2008 Lexus IS 350 vehicles sold in the U.S. to inspect the fuel pressure sensor installation.

Due to insufficient tightening of the fuel pressure sensor connected to certain engine fuel delivery pipes (those with Nickel Phosphorus plating), there is a possibility that the pressure sensor could loosen over time. If loosening occurs, fuel could leak past a gasket used in the connection between the sensor and the delivery pipe and through the threaded portion of the sensor.
