The recall of certain Lexus LS models, as carried by International News Wire Services, will involve a total of three (3) vehicles in Ireland.
The recall relates to a computer hardware issue controlling the Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) system in the vehicles, which enables easier handling during low-speed driving and provides better stability during high speed driving than conventional steering, by changing the ratio. The VGRS system may, in rare instances, exhibit a temporary steering wheel off-centre condition after driving away from a very tight turn where the steering was at the full lock position. This off-centre position will automatically be corrected by the VGRS system as the vehicles proceeds (taking approx 1 to 3 seconds)
The correction will require the replacement of the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) in each of the 3 affected vehicles.
