Recall Alert: 2013 Lexus GS 350

2013-lexus-gs350

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,462 model-year 2013 Lexus GS 350 sedans manufactured June 8 through Dec. 26, 2012

The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that the switch that senses the amount of pressure that the driver is applying to the brake pedal may fail. If this happens, the vehicle may brake without driver input or the illumination of the brake lights, increasing the risk of an accident. Toyota said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by this condition.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake pedal support assembly for free.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota will notify owners later this month, but parts are not currently available. Owners will get a second notice when parts become available. Customers can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or the NHTSA's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit www.safercar.gov, for more information.
