Lexus Recalls Certain Model Year 2015 NX Vehicles

The FINANCIAL -- Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. on May 27 announced that it is conducting a safety recall of approximately 3,000 model year 2015 Lexus NX 200t vehicles.

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, according to Toyota.

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.
