Toyota has been working alongside the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on the recall of 17,000 2010 Lexus HS250h models, as there is a chance of a possible fuel leak. When the vehicle underwent a safety test then HS250h was seen to have fuel leakage, which means that it failed this standard test.

The strange thing is, Lexus used these same tests and found that it had passed; the Toyota owned company is now investigating as to why this is happening. This is yet more troubling news for the Japanese automaker, who has been marred with a number of recalls in 2010.

According to Steven J. Ewing from Autoblog, Lexus is yet to find out why this had happened but as you would assume, is working hard to get to the bottom of the issue. The law states that no new models can be delivered to customers until a solution can be found.

If you are a 2010 Lexus HS250h owner, then you should contact your local Lexus dealer or visit their website. We have to wonder how many more recalls Toyota can handle before they lose the thing that is important to them most – customer satisfaction?
