Lexus Recalls Various 2009/2010 Models Due to a Defect in the Steering Mechanism Increasing the Cause of a Crash.
Toyota Motor North America, Inc. has issued the recall of the Lexus 2009-2010 LS460, 2009-2010 LS460L, 2010 LS600H and 2010 LS600HL, because of a programming change in the steering control ECU (for the variable gear ratio steering (VGRS) system) resulting in an improper activation causing the steering wheel to become off-centered. This may increase the cause of a motor vehicle crash after the driver has fully turned the steering wheel in one direction and then quickly attempts to turn it back to the center position. Owners should immediately contact Toyota at 800.331.4331 regarding this recall to obtain a free replacement of the ECU unit.
