Lexus Recalls Certain Model Year 2010 HS 250h Vehicles
October 04, 2017
PLANO, Texas, October 4, 2017 – Toyota Motor North America, Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall of certain Model Year 2010 Lexus HS 250h vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 18,000 vehicles are involved.
In the involved vehicles, a manufacturing issue in the hybrid vehicle transaxle assembly may cause components to wear, leading to a potential short circuit. This condition will illuminate warning lights and warning messages. In most cases, the vehicle will enter a fail-safe mode, resulting in reduced propulsion and allowing the vehicle to be driven safely for a limited distance. Under rare conditions, the hybrid system could shut down. While power steering and braking assist will function normally, a hybrid system shutdown while driving at higher speeds could increase the risk of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealers will replace the hybrid vehicle transaxle assembly with a new one at no cost to customers. All known owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail by late November.
