Revised Recall Announced for 2010 Lexus HS 250h

Lexus HS 250h Recall

Lexus has issued an update on last year’s recall of the 2010 HS 250h due to a revised fix — here are the details on the recall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

The Problem: The rear suspension arm could move around if the nuts aren’t reinstalled and torqued properly. As a result, rust could form at the threaded portion of the arm and eventually cause it to separate, leading to an abrupt change in the vehicle’s alignment.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the tie rods and replace them if they’re rusted or corroded on the alignment threads. All the rear tie rods will then be coated in an epoxy.

This revised fix applies to all affected HS 250hs (18,000 in total), even the vehicles were repaired under the previous recall. Owners will be contacted directly with further details.
