Lexus is recalling some vehicles because of a safety issues with breaks, according to news reports .
The vehicles included in the recall are 2011 Lexus RX 350 SUV’s. The specific vehicle undergoing a recall is the RX 350 equipped with Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) systems that were manufactured between August 2010 and May 2011.
The recalled vehicles have improperly calibrated brake actuators, according to news reports.
The faulty breaks could increase stopping distances, and thus increase the chances of an accident. The problem may prohibit the brakes from being correctly engaged while activating the automatic anti-lock braking or vehicle stability control.
So far, no reports of car accidents or personal injuries have been reported.
As a Beaufort car accident attorney , I’m glad to hear that no one has been injured because of this recall. Vehicle owners will start to be notified this month regarding braking issues. The faulty brake actuator will be replaced free of charge at local Lexus dealerships. Vehicle consumers may contact Toyota for further information regarding this recall.
If you or a loved one were harmed by an unsafe product, discuss your case with a car accident attorney in Beaufort who can evaluate your claim, assess your case, and answer any important legal questions you may have regarding your case.
