Fuel Fill Problem-Lexus RX300
Yes....this does sound like a kinked or restricted vent pipe.
Has it been like this, since you bought the car ?
Did you mention this whilst still under warranty ?
Have you ever had any accident damage or repairs in this vicinity of the vehicle ?
I suggest you go back to your main dealer and try to get this rectified under warranty, as this is a potentially hazardous, and dangerous fire problem.
Due to the temptation not to fit the pump nozzle fully in to the tank spout, to speed up the filling procedure.
And possibly then a blow-back of fuel, over yourself, and then the fire risk.
Lexus normally have a very high standard to maintain, especially where safety is concerned.
Get an appointment with the service manager, and do not be fobbed off.
$2OOO. sounds a ridiculous cost to rectify this problem.
Let me know your thoughts?
A FixYa rating would be appreciated.... Thank you !
Good Luck !
