Lexus UX 250h, ES 300h, LC 500 & LC 500h Recalled for Faulty Brake Booster Pump

Lexus has announced a safety recall on the 2019 UX 250h, ES300h, LC 500 & LS 500/500h due to faulty brake booster pumps:

In the subject vehicles, there is a possibility the brake booster pump may have been manufactured improperly, and in some cases, it may stop operating. If the brake booster pump stops operating, multiple warning lights and messages will illuminate, and/or audible chimes will sound.

In this condition, braking assist could be lost completely after several brake pedal applications, resulting in increased stopping distance. In addition, the Vehicle Stability Control will become deactivated, and other vehicle features could be affected. A deactivated Vehicle Stability Control or a sudden and complete loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.

The recall affects approximately 6,900 vehicles in the USA. Owners will receive a notification by first class mail by September. Lexus dealers will replace the brake booster pump at no cost to customers.

To see if your vehicle is affected, visit the Lexus Safety Recall website and enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or license plate information.
