Lexus Announces Recall of Certain 2013 GS Sedans


lexus

TORRANCE, CA--May 22, 2014: Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., today announced that it plans to conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 10,500 Model Year 2013 Lexus GS 350 sedans.

The brake pedal assembly in the subject vehicles contains a brake pedal load sensing switch which allows the brake system to detect brake pedal force application by the driver. Due to a manufacturing error, there is a possibility that the switch could improperly cause the brake system to activate without driver input while driving and without activating the rear brake lights. This could result in unexpected moderate deceleration.

For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealers will replace the brake pedal support assembly.

To date, Toyota is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fatalities caused by this condition.

Detailed information is available to customers at Lexus Recall or by calling the Lexus Customer Satisfaction Center at 1-800-25-LEXUS (1-800-255-3987).
