2006 Lexus LX470 RecallsSide Curtain Air Bags Deploy Unexpectedly
The side curtain air bags may deploy unexpectedly, resulting in possible occupant injury. Dealers will replace the air bag control module with one that has improved programming free of charge to resolve the concern.
A snap ring securing the steering shaft may disengage in the event of severe impact of the front wheel. If the snap ring is disengaged and the steering wheel is repeatedly turned to the lock position, over time, the steering shaft could become disconnected. This would result in loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the snap ring with a newly designed one and install an additional device to prevent separation of the steering shaft. This recall is expected to begin on August 23, 2010.
