Vehicles Affected: Approximately 89,700 model-year 2008-19 Lexus LX 570 SUVs and Toyota Land Cruiser SUVs
The Problem: The front-passenger occupant classification system has a seat belt tension sensor that could malfunction over time and cause the airbag warning light and the passenger airbag “Off” indicator to illuminate. Additionally, the front passenger airbag, knee airbag and passenger-seat-mounted side airbag may be deactivated. Both increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The Fix: Lexus manufacturer Toyota is currently developing the remedy.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners by mid-February 2019. Owners can call Lexus at 800-255-3987, Toyota at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
