Just the Facts:
  • Toyota is recalling 10,500 2013 Lexus GS 350 sedans in the U.S. to replace the brake-pedal support assembly.
  • A faulty switch could "improperly cause the brake system to activate without driver input while driving," Toyota said in a statement.
  • Toyota said it is "not aware of any accidents, injuries or fatalities caused by this condition."

TORRANCE, California Toyota is recalling 10,500 2013 Lexus GS 350 sedans in the U.S. to replace the brake-pedal support assembly, the automaker said.

"The brake-pedal assembly in the subject vehicles contains a brake-pedal load-sensing switch which allows the brake system to detect brake-pedal force application by the driver," Toyota said in a statement. "Due to a manufacturing error, there is a possibility that the switch could improperly cause the brake system to activate without driver input while driving and without activating the rear brake lights. This could result in unexpected moderate deceleration."

Toyota said it is "not aware of any accidents, injuries or fatalities caused by this condition."

Lexus dealers will replace the brake-pedal support assembly. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Owners of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 will have to wait for their formal recall notice before taking the car in for the repair. But if you have a concern or problem in the meantime, contact your dealer.
