1. 2011 Lexus RX 350 SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC NHTSA Campaign #11V377000

    • Date Announced: JULY 26, 2011
    • Vehicles Affected: 32

    Summary: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2011 Lexus RX350 passenger cars manufactured from August 30, 2010, through May 18, 2011, and equipped with vehicle dynamics integrated management (vdim). The calibration for the hydraulic control valves is incorrect. Due to this condition, there is a possibility that the right front wheel may not be controlled properly during ABS (antilock brake system) or vsc (vehicle stability control) actuation.

    Consequence: This could result in increased stopping distances and/or a failure to adequately correct a vehicle slide, which could increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the brake actuator with a new one, free of charge. The safety recall began on September 8, 2011. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #11V377000 »
