2005 Lexus LX470 Recalls
The side curtain air bags that protect occupants in a crash may deploy unexpectedly when not needed. This can increase risk of occupant injury.
Recalls on your Lexus or Toyota must be performed by the respective Lexus or Toyota dealership. Toyota will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning in April, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Lexus or Toyota dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
In the event of severe impact to the front wheels, a snap ring on the steering shaft could become disengaged. If this occurs, over time the steering shaft may become disconnected, resulting in loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash.
This should be considered a high priority recall. Loss of steering could occur without warning. Please contact your Lexus dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
