    Recall Date
    02/23/1994
    Component
    LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH
    Summary

    THE SECONDARY HOOD LATCH MECHANISM HAS A NARROW CLEARANCE BETWEEN INTERNAL PARTS WHICH, OVER TIME, ACCUMULATE DUST OR OTHER FOREIGN MATTER AND CAUSE THE LATCH TO NOT ENGAGE PROPERLY.

    Consequence

    IF THIS OCCURS AND THE PRIMARY LATCH IS NOT PROPERLY ENGAGED, THE HOOD COULD OPEN SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING, BLOCKING THE VISION OF THE DRIVER, WHICH COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT.

    What Owners Should Do

    LEXUS DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE SECONDARY HOOD LATCH.

What Should You Do?
