2010 Lexus HS 250h Recalled

Lexus has announced a voluntary safety recall on the 2010 Lexus HS 250h:

Toyota has determined that if the nuts on the rear suspension arm are not tightened following the proper procedure and torque specification during a rear wheel alignment service, excessive play may occur at the threaded portion of the arm, followed by rust formation.  If this were to occur, the threaded portion of the rear suspension arm may wear and cause the arm to separate.

The recall affects approximately 18,000 HS 250h vehicles — owners will be contacted directly with further details on repairs.
