Lexus Ireland has announced, following an announcement from Toyota Motor Corporation, that it will recall 480 vehicles in the current Lexus GS and LS ranges to replace improperly functioning valve springs which have been found in some vehicles.
The models affected are the current generation LS 460, LS 600h and GS 450h.
The recall is being taken in response to the possibility of abnormal engine noise or unstable idling occurring in a vehicle, which would be notified to the driver by the illumination of an engine warning light on the dashboard, or the possibility, in very rare circumstances, that the engine may stall.
The procedure will involve the replacement of the engine valve springs and will take approximately 2 days to complete, depending on the particular model.
Lexus Ireland is currently identifying the specific customers affected and will be writing to them to arrange a suitable date to complete the procedure.
In the meantime should any customer have concerns they can contact Lexus Ireland on a dedicated Freefone number 1 800 224222 or the website www.lexus.ie
