- More Recalls for Toyota – Lexus Faulty Engine Component
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.
More Problems for Toyota and Lexus – New Recalls
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.
Lexus Models Affected in Latest Recall
Specifically, the forthcoming Lexus recall concerns the following models:
- 2007 and 2008 GS 350 and 450h, 2008 GS 460
- 2006 through 2008 IS 350
- 2007 and 2008 LS 460 and LS 460L
- 2008 LS 600hL
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.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
