Vehicle Safety Recalls

Vehicle manufacturers take safety very seriously with all companies having robust procedures to undertake recalls if a safety related fault is found in a vehicle model. As the official representatives of a vehicle marque, MIA members carry out safety related recall campaigns which involve:

  1. Identifying the vehicles in which the fault may occur (note that with the vast majority of safety recall campaigns actual failure rates are extremely low);
  2. with the help of NZTA, getting the updated records of the registered owners; and
  3. contacting these vehicle owners to have the vehicle inspected and repaired (all free of charge) at the nearest franchise dealership.

Recalled:
10 Mar 2020

Statement:
Fuel Pump: The subject vehicles are equipped with a low-pressure fuel pump, located in the fuel tank, that supplies fuel pressure to the fuel injection system. These fuel pumps may include impellers which have been manufactured incorrectly. Deformation of the impeller may cause the fuel pump to become inoperative. An inoperative fuel pump could result in illumination of check engine and master warning indicators, rough engine running, engine no start and/or vehicle stall while driving at low speed. However, in rare instances, vehicle stall could occur while driving at higher speeds, increasing the risk of a crash. NOT ALL VEHICLES IN THE MODEL YEARS ARE INVOLVED.

Instructions:
As an owner of an involved vehicle, you will be contacted by registered letter requesting you to contact your nearest authorised Lexus Dealer to arrange a convenient time to have the repairs completed at no cost. Alternatively, contact Lexus New Zealand to discuss. See details below.
