Lexus Ireland recalls RX

September 14, 2016

Lexus Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain models of the RX produced between December 2015 and February 2016.

The subject vehicles are equipped with a “hybrid” type front passenger air bag inflator which contains compressed gas and propellant in the same combustion chamber.

Misassembled / improper welding may cause partial inflation of the front passenger air bag without a deployment demand. This has been observed when the vehicle is parked and unoccupied for a period of time. An airbag that inflates in this manner can, under some circumstances, increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a crash.

There have been 14 affected vehicles placed on the Irish market.

What to do:

Lexus Ireland will be writing directly to those customers involved in this recall to arrange to have the repair carried out.  The letter will advise you to contact your nearest Lexus Dealer/Authorised Repairer who will arrange to do the check/repair free of charge. Lexus Ireland can be contacted on: 01 4190222.
