The brake booster pump motor may stop working due to a defective plastic brush holder. As a result, the braking assistance could be lost completely after several attempts to apply the brake pedal. A sudden and complete loss of braking assistance while driving could increase the vehicle stopping distance and may increase the risk of an accident.
The Lexus LS 500 / LS 500h models affected by this recall were manufactured between 26 April 2019 and 6 June 2019.
