TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2006 -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., announced today that it will launch a voluntary special service campaign with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The campaign involves approximately 3,900 early 2004 model year Lexus RX 330 vehicles in the U.S.

In certain early 2004 Model Year Lexus RX 330 vehicles, there is a possibility that the anchor bolt for the rear, left-side passenger seatbelt buckle (directly behind the driver's seat) does not have sufficient strength. Lexus has received one report of this condition.

Lexus will mail owners of the involved vehicles a special service campaign notification via first class mail beginning in late January or early February, 2006. Lexus dealers will replace the anchor bolt at no charge to the vehicle owners. Owners are requested to contact their local Lexus dealer for diagnosis and repair upon receiving their notification.

Customers with questions or concerns should contact the Lexus Customer Satisfaction Center at 1-800-255-3987.
