According to a recent report, Toyota is recalling more than 100,000 vehicles! There is apparently an issue that is causing fuel leaks and potential for car fires on some of their models.
"Toyota Motor North America announced this week that it is conducting a safety recall of select Lexus models that were manufactured between 2006 and 2014. In total, an estimated 115,000 units are being recalled throughout the nation," according to reports.
Among the models recalled include the IS 350 (between the years 2006 and 2013); IS350 C (2010-2014); GS 350 (2007-2011); GS 450h (2007-2011).

According to Toyota, “the vehicles are equipped with a certain 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine. The diaphragm material in the fuel pulsation dampers in this engine may harden over time and crack, causing fuel to leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.”
