Lexus to recall LS models on steering defect

Toyota's recall saga continues
May 18, 2010

Toyota's recall problem has yet to end as another Lexus model is being subjected to a global recall because of a defect in its steering system just a month after the Lexus GX was recalled for a problem with its Vehicle Stability Control program.

While no accident has been reported, Toyota Motor Corp. has received 12 reports of electrical problems that could cause the steering system to malfunction in four Lexus models: the LS460 and LS460L, and the LS600h and LS600hL hybrids, TradingRoom.com.au said.

The report quoted Toyota spokesman Paul Nolasco saying "of about 11,500 Lexus models worldwide" is being planned.

Toyota Motor Philippines has yet to issue a statement on the measures the lone Lexus dealership in the country will take to address the problem.

The LS is a full-size luxury sedan and serves as the flagship model of Toyota's luxury brand.
