Voluntary recall on luxury hybrid
Lexus is voluntarily recalling the Lexus HS 250h hybrid to address a gas spillage problem following a crash scenario created by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that resulted in a fuel spill greater than the US standard.
According to OfficialWire, Toyota is currently working on a solution to the spillage issue - not found during internal Toyota compliance testing – but first Toyota needs to replicate the NHTSA's crash scenario.
Until then, however, all new HS 250h hybrid deliveries will be delayed.
Current customers will be notified by Toyota “As soon as the issue is better understood and/or a remedy is developed”.
