June 27, 2018—Lexus recalls about 121,000 cars worldwide because of fuel leaks, reported USA Today.

The recall covers certain 2006 through 2013 IS350 cars, as well as the 2010 through 2014 IS350C, and the 2007 through 2011 GS350 and GS450h. All have 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engines, according to the report. 

Toyota says a diaphragm material in the fuel injection system can harden over time and crack, allowing fuel to leak, reported USA Today.  The company would not say if the problem has caused any fires, crashes or injuries.
