Lexus CT200h – ZWA10
What are the defects?
The subject vehicles are equipped with a resin fuel tank that contains a resin fuel inlet pipe. There is the possibility that the resin weld between the fuel tank and the fuel inlet pipe may not be to specification.
What are the hazards?
A portion of the resin weld between the fuel tank and the fuel inlet pipe could peel off, causing fuel leakage and fuel odour. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak could increase the risk of a fire.
What should consumers do?
Owner's will be contacted, inviting them to make an appointment with their preferred Lexus Dealer to have the fuel tank replaced free of charge.
