2015 Lexus NX 200t Recalled for Brake Problem


TORRANCE, California Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. is recalling approximately 3,000 2015 Lexus NX 200t SUVs to fix a brake problem, the automaker said on Wednesday.

There is a possibility that a component inside the antilock brakes actuator could be damaged during assembly and later not operate properly. The ABS actuator controls the antilock brakes, traction control and vehicle stability control systems.

"Under some driving conditions, if the ABS is activated, this could cause a loss of vehicle stability, which can increase the risk of a crash," said Toyota in a statement.

There are no injuries or fatalities linked to the recall.

Toyota spokeswoman Cindy Knight told Edmunds the recall will begin in early July.

Lexus dealers will inspect the ABS actuator and, if necessary, replace it with a new one. Owners can contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

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

Edmunds says: This recall does not begin for several weeks. If you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
