Over 264,000 luxury vehicles, made by Toyota, have been recalled due to faulty exhaust pipes. Forty thousand of these recalled vehicles are from the Lexus branch of the company. These flawed exhaust pipes on the recalled models could lead to fuel leaks, cracks, and corrosion. Although most of the recalls are being made in Japan, the Toyota company, along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has recalled about 34,400 vehicles in the United States as well. The recalled model types are the Lexus GS300, Lexus IS250, and Lexus IS350. Though they are 2006 models, they were made in Japan in 2005. Toyota will notify the owners of the vehicles involved in early December.
