Lexus Recalls the 2022 NX for Shock Absorber Issue

Lexus is recalling a batch of 2022 NX models (including HEV & PHEV) due to incorrect welding of the front shock absorbers — here’s how Lexus describes it:

The front shock absorbers in the affected vehicles are mounted to body panels that may be missing some spot-welds. Incorrect welding could eventually cause a shock absorber to separate from the mounting area, resulting in a loss of driving stability and increasing the risk of a crash.

There are 4,000 NX models in the USA affected by this recall, and owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by the middle of June 2022.
