Published on 21. 09. 2018

Problem description:

The vehicles’ electronic control unit (ECU) has been improperly programmed and the throttle is not coordinated with the transmission and gear changes. As a consequence, when accelerating in highway driving mode, the hybrid system could shut down, causing a loss of power, which can increase the risk of accidents.

The recall affects vehicles produced between 2. 8. 2016 – 5. 7. 2018.

VIN: from JTHHY5AY#0A000106 to JTHHY5AY#0A001394 (# can be different characters, all affected)

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.
