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.
