Lexus USA has announced a safety recall of the 2017 Lexus RX 350 due to a faulty vacuum pump assembly:
The involved vehicles are equipped with a vacuum pump assembly, which provides braking assist. A component in the vacuum pump assembly may have been manufactured incorrectly.
This condition could lead to the illumination of a warning light, a warning message, an audible tone, and result in the sudden loss of braking assist. A sudden loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.
All affected owners will receive a notification by first class mail by late May. Lexus dealers will replace the vacuum pump with a new one at no cost to customers. For any additional questions, you can refer to the Lexus Safety Recall website.
