Lexus is serious about safety which is why they do not take any chances when it comes to recalling Lexus vehicles. Although the latest recall could just affect approximately 3,000 NX200t’s, Lexus will be notifying all owners with a potential NX involved in the recall by First Class Mail.
Here is the Lexus Press Release…
The subject vehicles are equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking system (ABS), Traction Control System (TRAC), and Vehicle Stability Control System (VSC) which are controlled by the ABS actuator. There is a possibility that a component inside the actuator could be damaged during assembly and later not operate properly. Under some driving conditions, if the ABS is activated, this could cause a loss of vehicle stability, which can increase the risk of a crash.
To date, Toyota is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities caused by this condition.
All known owners of the involved Lexus vehicles will be notified by first class mail. Lexus dealers will inspect the ABS actuator and if necessary replace it with a new one.
