Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain Lexus LS vehicles

February 26, 2019
PLANO, Texas, February 26, 2019 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2018 Model Year Lexus LS 500/500h vehicles in the United States. Approximately 6,300 vehicles are involved in this recall.

The involved vehicles are equipped with run-flat tires that were assembled to the wheels improperly. There is a possibility that a crack could develop on the sidewall reinforcement layer of the tires.  Under certain driving conditions, portions of the tire tread layer could separate, causing a reduction of vehicle stability and increasing the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, all four tires will be replaced with new ones at no charge to customers if one or more tire(s) are run-flat tire(s) manufactured by a specific tire supplier.  Owners of all the vehicles involved will be notified by late April.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is current as of today’s filing date and is subject to change thereafter.To see if your vehicle is involved in a safety recall visit toyota.com/recall or nhtsa.gov/recalls and enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or license plate information
