According to Lexus, the electronic control unit for the VGRS system could cause the steering wheel to become off-centered when restarting the vehicle immediately after it’s parked with the steering wheel turned. This could lead to an increased risk of an accident.
The automaker will notify owners starting in early June, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Lexus says the fix will take around 30 minutes. Owners can call Lexus at 800-255-3987 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
