Toyota recalls 11,500 Lexus LS sedans all over the world
If these were pancakes, we would be totally jacked. Unfortunately, pancakes have nothing to do with any of this. ’This’, of course, is Toyota’s continued recall woes, which continue to stack up like hot pancakes on a beautiful Sunday morning.
Toyota Motor Corporation has announced that it would be recalling four Lexus LS models over problems involving the car’s steering wheel system. The affected LS models are the LS460, the LS460L, the LS600h, and the LS600hL. All of these models come with the Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), which has been a source of problems for customers when the wheel doesn’t return to its original position fast enough after making turns. According to Lexus spokesperson, Mieko Iwasaki, the problem in the VGRS can be traced to both mechanical and software malfunctions.
All in all, a total of over 11,500 vehicles will be recalled all over the world. Once again, just when it looks like Toyota is finally turning the proverbial corner, another recall drops on its tired and weary lap.
