Lexus Recalls

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or in some cases replace the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Brakes Do Not Stop Effectively

The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that can result in improper brake fluid pressure control during events that activate the anti-lock brake, traction control or stability control systems. This could lead to loss of vehicle control. Dealers will inspect the brake actuator and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Recall 16V127000

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture when deploying the air bag due to excessive internal pressure. As a result, metal debris could be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or air bag module depending on the model free of charge to resolve the concern.

Great car!
What can you say about a car that is 16yrs old and has never had a spark plug change? My '99 GS 400 has 215,000 miles and has hardly ever had a problem. I'm convinced it will run forever. I've replaced more parts that wear out like the tires and brakes than anything having to do with the motor and transmission. They are solid. Never an electronic or computer issue. I've thought about trading it...
Car like new with all bells and now only 11,000 miles
