Due to an error in the manufacturing process, micro-cracks may develop on the plating of the damper rod on the rear door, allowing the gas charged in the damper to leak.
If a sufficient amount of gas leaks, the damper may fail to keep the back door open, increasing the risk of injury.
The Lexus CT 200h models affected by this recall were manufactured between 29 January and 7 March 2019.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Lexus dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
