RepairPal Expert Overview:

The front seat belt retractors may not release due to a failure of the emergency locking system. If the seat belt is locked, the occupant may not be able to properly fasten the seat belt. An unrestrained occupant may have an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the front seat belt assemblies to correct this concern.

On 133 vehicles, certain airbag inflators were assembled with an insufficient amount of the heating agents necessary for proper airbag deployment.  In the event of a crash, if the airbag does not deploy as expected, the risk of injury will increase. Dealers will replace only the suspect airbags to correct this concern. The Toyota recall number is 60B. The Lexus recall number is 6LB.

Drive Train, December 27, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The accelerator pedal may temporarily become stuck in the partially depressed position due to inadequate clearance between the accelerator pedal linkage and a plastic pad embedded in the driver's foot well carpet. As a result, the engine may not return to its idle speed as expected, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the clearance of the accelerator pedal and carpet, replace the pedal with a revised assembly, and modify the carpet to correct this concern. The Lexus recall number is 5LC.
