PLANO, Texas (April 13, 2022) – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2022 NX (including HEV, PHEV), vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 4,000 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The front shock absorbers in the affected vehicles are mounted to body panels that may be missing some spot-welds. Incorrect welding could eventually cause a shock absorber to separate from the mounting area, resulting in a loss of driving stability and increasing the risk of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealers will inspect the welding near the shock absorber mounting areas. For vehicles with missing spot-welds, additional welds will be added to the body panels. If the inspection determines that the body panels or any welds have failed, the body panels will be replaced.
Owners of involved vehicles will be notified by the middle of June 2022.
