Lexus is recalling 1,081 model year 2019 and 2021 RX350s.
The transport hook may not have been removed prior to sale.
In a rear-end crash, the transport hook can damage the fuel filler pipe, increasing the risk of a fire.
What to do
Lexus will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and -- as necessary -- remove the rear transport hook free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin March 29, 2021.
Owners may contact Lexus customer service at (800) 331-4331. Lexus' number for this recall is 21LA01.
