Due to improper programming of the brake control module, there is a possibility that under certain conditions the parking brake may not be set automatically when the brake hold system is deactivated (as designed). If this occurs, and the transmission is left in a gear other than “Park” or “Reverse”, the vehicle could creep forward or backward.
The recall affects vehicles manufactured in 2014 – 2016.

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.

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
