  • Lexus issues recall for selected 2016 RX 350 and RX 450h!
 

The safety recall will affect approximately 5,000 vehicles due to a problem with the driver knee airbag.

Toyota Motors has just announced Lexus will recall some of their vehicles. Lexus will be conducting a safety recall of approximately 5,000 vehicles. All the vehicles involved in the recall are Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h.

The model year of the vehicles is 2016. The recall has been issued due to a problem with the driver’s knee airbag module. The knee airbag module may not have been properly manufactured which can affect the performance.

So the airbag can increase the risk of injury in case of a crash. According to Toyota all owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by first class mail.

The notification mails will start arriving by March 2016. As part of the recall Lexus dealers will inspect the cars. If necessary the driver’s knee airbag will be changed free of charge. 

Information about the recall is subject to change over time. Toyota urges the customers to check their vehicle’s status by visiting their official site. Or the customers can directly go over to http://www.toyota.com/recall. At the site Lexus owners are required to enter their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). 

It is to be noted the current airbag issue is not related to the Takata airbags recall. The news was confirmed by a Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight to the Autoblog. According to Toyota there have been no deaths or injuries related to the current issue.
