Lexus recalls Passenger vehicles Models RX450h & NX300h
February 1, 2018
Lexus Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of Models RX450h & NX300h.
The subject vehicles are equipped with an airbag system containing pressure sensors which detect impact to the vehicle. There is a possibility that, due to the manufacturing issue, the IC chips in affected Pressure sensors have insulation layers that could peel over time, creating an open circuit in the IC chip. If this were to occur, the airbag warning light will illuminate and the side/curtain shield airbags and/or front airbags may not deploy. Non-deployment of the side/curtain shield airbags and/or front airbags could increase the risk of injury to the occupants in the event of a crash.
Lexus models RX450h & NX300h that were produced between May to December 2015. There are 141 affected vehicles 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 airbag inspected and replaced. The letter will also advise consumers affected by this voluntary recall to contact their nearest Lexus Dealer/Authorised Repairer who will arrange to do the repair free of charge. Lexus Ireland can be contacted on: 01 419 0222.Return to Product Recalls
