The subject vehicles are equipped with an airbag system containing Pressure sensors and/or acceleration sensors which detect impact to the vehicle. There is a possibility that, due to two different manufacturing issues, an open circuit in the IC chip may occur and the airbag warning light will illuminate. Consequently, the side/curtain shield airbags and/or front airbags, may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury to the occupants in the event of a crash.
What to do...
As an owner of an involved vehicle, you will be contacted by registered letter requesting you to contact your nearest authorised Lexus Dealer to arrange a convenient time to have the repairs completed. Alternatively, contact Lexus New Zealand to discuss. See details below.
