What Happened with the Lexus RX 350 Recalls?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Lexus has had the following recalls for their RX 350 vehicles in the last couple of years:
|2020 – Fuel System, Gasoline Delivery: Fuel Pump (Recall #20V012000)
|This recall addressed a defect in the fuel pump on some Lexus RX 350 vehicles. According to Lexus, contamination may cause the fuel pump to stall and prevent the vehicle from starting. Fuel leakage may occur, which can lead to fire during normal vehicle operation.
|2018 – Air Bags: Frontal (Recall #18V085000)
|In this recall, the front passenger airbag may not have been assembled correctly. This can result in reduced airbag performance or the airbags being unable to deploy at all in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury or death.
|2016 – Electronic Stability Control (Recall #16V198000)
|Lexus RX 350 vehicles equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) may experience unintended acceleration. This can occur when the brake pedal is depressed and held for an extended period of time while driving at low speeds. Unintended acceleration can cause a vehicle crash resulting in serious injury or death.
|2014 – Electronic Stability Control, Service Brakes, Hydraulic (Recall #14V054000)
|The affected vehicles may experience the failure of the stability control, anti-lock braking (ABS), or hydraulic brake systems. This can cause a loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of a crash resulting in serious injury or death.
|2014 – Fuel System, Gasoline: Delivery: Hoses, Lines/Piping, and Fittings (Recall #14V576000)
|This recall involves the defective hose, which can fracture and result in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can cause a fire resulting in death or serious injury.
|2012 – Vehicle Speed Control: Accelerator Pedal (Recall #12V305000)
