Almost 1,500 Lexus recalled in the UAE

Al Futtaim Motors forced to take action in another Toyota recall.


July 5, 2010 3:05 by

The exclusive dealer for Toyota and Lexus in the UAE has said almost 1,500 vehicles are affected in the latest recall.

Al Futtaim Motors says 1,347 selected 2007 and 2008 model year Lexus LS 460s are susceptible to the latest fault identified by the Japanese carmaker.

“Lexus Japan has confirmed that due to possible defective valve springs there is a small possibility of abnormal engine noise or rough idling. In extremely rare instances, the engine may stall,” Simon Frith, Managing Director of Al Futtaim Motors, said in a statement to Gulf News.

“In the interests of delivering the highest standards of Lexus product quality and customer care, we will be contacting our customers directly for a complimentary replacement of the affected parts,” he said.

The problems are the latest in a string of difficulties for the car manufacturer, which was forced to recall up to 8 million cars worldwide earlier this year for a defect that led to unintended acceleration.

Toyota Motor Corporation, the world’s largest automaker, said on Monday it will recall 91,903 cars sold in Japan after saying engines in as many as 270,000 vehicles worldwide may have a defect that can lead to stalling, Bloomberg reported.
