Lexus ?stop sell? notice

The Lexus recall was issued due to a defect in the steering system that could leave the steering wheel off-centre by up to 90 degrees after it had been turned to full lock in manoeuvres such as a sharp corner or U-turn.

The electronic control units are needed to address a recall notice issued last week for 11,500 of the Lexus flagship sedans.  Less than 40 of those vehicles are in Australia, with only 15 of those sold and on the road. 

The recall was issued due to a defect in the steering system that could leave the steering wheel off-centre by up to 90 degrees after it had been turned to full lock in manoeuvres such as a sharp corner or U-turn.

“If the driver has fully turned the steering wheel to full lock and then very quickly attempts to turn it back to the centre position, the steering wheel may temporarily become off-centred before automatically returning to the centre position within 1-5 seconds,” Lexus says.
