Lexus ES300 Recalled

• Toyota Motor Company, Ltd.

• Models: Lexus ES300 Year: 2002

• Number Involved: 1,697

• Dates of Manufacture: September - October 2001

Defect: On these passenger vehicles, the left front brake tube may have been deformed prior to vehicle delivery due to improper installation of a coil spring spacer that was installed to prevent damage to the vehicle during transportation. If the brake tube is deformed significantly, it could contact the inner fender panel, and eventually cause damage to the tube due to vibration during driving. Brake tube damage could also lead to brake fluid leakage after extended use of the brakes. This could cause increased stopping distances during braking, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the front brake line and, if necessary, replace the line. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during January 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Lexus at 1-888-333-9376.
