For decades, Toyota has been a brand of automobile that has been known around the world for quality, dependability and safety. Unfortunately for the company and millions of Toyota owners, their brand has been savaged by several recent Toyota recalls that have led to several alleged injuries and fatalities. It seemed that the Toyota storm had passed in recent months, but now comes word that Toyota is getting set to initiate yet another recall, and this one concerns several models of Lexus automobiles that are believed to be defective. Once again, this news is prompting calls for help to Toyota recall lawyers around the United States. Below is an overview of the Lexus recall.
Toyota has taken preliminary steps to initiate a recall of approximately 138,000 Lexus vehicles that have been sold in the United States. The reason for this Lexus recall is that there is a problem with components of the engines that could lead to stalling. At best, this Lexus defect will lead to rough idling and engine noise. Specifically, the defect concerns valve springs present in these engines that were made with low-quality metal. This metal is apparently not strong enough to avoid cracking, leading to the potential problems described above. Overall, Toyota is set to recall approximately 270,000 Lexus vehicles worldwide, and more than half of them were sold in the United States.
Specifically, the forthcoming Lexus recall concerns the following models:
Toyota has stated that to date, no reports of injuries or fatalities have been received, and owners of these vehicles will receive notification in the mail that will direct them to the nearest dealership for necessary repairs.
This news comes on the heels of more than 8 million vehicles being affected by Toyota recalls for problems that include accelerator pedals sticking to the floor, brake system problems and software problems that all have proved to be extremely dangerous for unsuspecting drivers.
