The Federal Road Safety Corps has called on Nigerian motorists to avoid driving or riding in certain Lexus vehicles already recalled by Toyota China due to faulty programming and defective Electric Parking Brake System.
The warning, which was contained in a media statement released on Friday by the FRSC’s Corps Public Education Officer, Assistant Corps Marshal Bisi Kazeem, stressed that the already recalled vehicles pose safety hazard to their users, with possibility of causing road crash.
It identified the vehicles as March 2021 to April 2022 edition of Lexus NX260, Lexus NX3650h and Lexus NX400h+, which has been recalled over faulty programming of the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System as well as 19 April 2021 and 15 July 2022. Editions of Lexus NX260 recalled over defective Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system.
The statement reads: “The Federal Road Safety Corps wishes to draw the attention of the motoring public, particularly those who are presently using Lexus NX260, Lexus NX3650h and Lexus NX400h+ manufactured between 31 March, 2021 to 26 April 2022 to a faulty programming of the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System, which has prompted the Company to recall the categories of the listed vehicles.
“According to the report contained in a memo forwarded by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the company is also recalling 6,491 Lexus NX260 with defective Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system which was manufactured between 19 April 2021 and 15 July 2022.
