LEXUS RECALL INFORMATION
Lexus Australia has issued safety recalls for certain vehicles equipped with Takata airbags.
About the recalls
A number of Lexus models have been recalled for front passenger airbag inflators that were manufactured by Takata Corporation.
What is the defect with the airbags?
The propellant in inflators in the Takata airbags subject to the recall may degrade after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity and fluctuating high temperatures. Degraded propellant can cause inflator rupture during airbag deployment. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, striking the vehicle occupants, and result in serious injury or death.
Is my Lexus affected?
As part of the recall process, Lexus Australia notifies registered owners of affected vehicles by mail.
