Toyota Lexus LS Recall: List of Models

There have been reports that Toyota is to announce yet another recall, which once again involves its luxury Lexus brand. The fault is to do with its steering and affects the LS range — 11,500 models is thought to be recalled globally, this is according to a report from Bloomberg.

The list of models affected include: LS 600h and LS 600h L, LS 460 and the LS 460L. 3,800 of those are in the U.S. alone and will not come as a shock considering the recent list of recalls that has cost the Japanese automaker millions in fines from the U.S. government.

According to Toyota, LS customers have complained that the steering in these affected vehicles do not return to a normal position once you have tried to make a turn. In the Bloomberg report, Makiko Kitamura explains that it could be software and mechanical related.

This latest recall is just one-month after the Lexus GX460, which had stability control problems. Thankfully that was an easy fix as the ESC needed to be reprogrammed. There has not been an announcement from the NHTSA of a recall, but it seems that Toyota is currently preparing one.
