I've not yet seen a TSIB on this, perhaps since they qualify it as a recall as opposed to a TSIB? Not sure. At any rate, how much info does it give you about the risk factors with the fuel line, if any?

It says "Safety Recall Notice."

May be some stress areas in the pipes during manufacturing. A crack may form leading to fuel leakage. In the worst case, fuel leakage in the prescnece of an ignition source could result in a fire.

I read that as if the line cracks and leaks gas, your car may burn up. Nothing really serious. I'd like to see the instructions they issue for this so I can see what lines they are and where they are.

Nothing really serious! Thx for the update. My dealership said they didn't have my car in the system yet, but I think my vin qualifies. Guess I'll wait 'til I get a notice, or my car starts smoking!

I dropped off the IS at Huntsville Lexus after lunch today. I got a ES350 loaner car. Man did I ever forget how crummy front wheel drive is. I stopped on the way home and got a burger, turned to the highway and hit it like I usually do and it almost ripped the wheel out of my hands with torque steer. It rides like a 1970's Buick and when you hit the gas kinda hard it roars but doesn't really take off that fast. The whole feel of the car is like any of the mid size rentals we used to get at airports, just all mushy and not so powerful and an interior that just feels plain. I'll be glad to get my IS back tomorrow.

Any TSIB's for the 2008 yet???

I sorta like my grabby brakes.... but damn they are very dusty and i know they are wearing the rotors a bit quicker than normal.. (in my opinion)

Just hit 7.5k miles....

Also, dealing with some vibrating next to my left ear and a few here and there on the passenger side area.

Haven't pin pointed the source .. yet...

wow most tsbs are about rattles, there are some in my car but i thought that
was caused by my much firmer coilover...

can we just go to the lexus and ask them to do all diagnostic and fix as needed? because i dont like spending time looking for source of rattles its frustrating !

thanks

Oil Leak

Just bought my '06 IS-350 with 14,000 miles a week ago.Did a oil change on it and noticed a small oil leak coming from the top of the timing chain cover.
Took it to the dealer and they said they would fix it in about two days.

Called to see how it was going and they told me "Yea your engine is is out and on the floor". WHAT???

IT turns out that there is a TSB for some cars to experience a oil leak from the timing chain cover.And to get to it it's easier to remove the engine.

Well I hope they do a good job and I get my car back soon and with no querks. WOW!

My 2006 IS350 is back in the shop for the same issues they were to fix last week:

1: Directly after starting the car thee is a long raddling noise.
2: The VSC light keeps coming on for about 2 weeks then goes off only to come back on.
3: My windows stopped opening/closing all the sudden.

Hope it's fixed today, they put a new starter in it last time and it's still making the noise. I don't want them to keep resetting codes, they need to fic the problem.

Geeze, sorry to hear that? I've never had any of those problems with my 2006. Please keep us posted. Are they at least putting you in nice new loaner during the fix?

Hey, for the engine noise, did they do this attempt last time?

I got my car back yesterday afternoon after a week.After going to the dealer and seeing my engine on the floor and whole lot of neat little piles of parts everywhere, that was a bit creepy. Well it seems to be allright and yea they gave me a loaded '07 ES350 as a loaner.The ES isn't bad, soft comfortable ride, plenty of room, your not exactly, basic family car.
Nothing compared to the IS.

Now I just cross my fingers and hope the tech put it all together right.
Time will tell.

Good question. Does the brake dust TSIB apply to '08 350's as well? I have to clean my wheels at least twice a week or the front ones turn black.
