Lexus has announced the 2012 Lexus RX 350, which will see two changes from the 2011 model: first, like all 2012 Lexus models, Nebula Grey Pearl will replace Smoky Granite Mica, and second, the fuel recommendation has been lowered from 91-octane to 87-octane.
Lexus has issued a recall for a small number of RX 350s equipped with Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) systems. The issue stems from improper calibration of the hydraulic control valves, which may cause the front right wheel to function incorrectly during ABS (Antilock Braking System) or VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) activation
