Toyota Recalls Certain Camry and Lexus RC F, GS F and LC 500 Vehicles

PLANO, Texas (Feb. 14, 2018) – Toyota Motor North America, Inc. today announced that it is conducting separate safety recalls in the U.S. of approximately 11,800 Model Year 2018 Toyota Camry vehicles and approximately 9,900 Model Year 2015 – 2018 Lexus RC F, Model Year 2016 – 2018 Lexus GS F and Model Year 2018 Lexus LC 500 vehicles.

Camry
During the assembly process, there is the possibility that the fuel pipes and the fuel hoses in the engine compartment were not properly connected.  This condition could lead to a fuel odor or fuel leak.  A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could increase the risk of a fire.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will inspect the fuel pipes and the fuel hoses, and if necessary, properly connect them at no cost to customers.  All known owners will receive a notification by first class mail by late March.

Lexus RC F, GS F and LC 500
The involved vehicles are equipped with two high pressure fuel pumps. There is a possibility that the cover of one of these pumps could become damaged over time and lead to a fuel leak.  A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealers will replace both high-pressure fuel pumps with improved ones at no cost to customers.  All known owners will receive a notification by first class mail starting in early April.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
