Lexus Recalling Certain 2019 ES Models

By -

About 560 vehicles are involved in this recall which effects airbag deployment. 

Toyota has issued a recall of some 560 2019 Lexus ES vehicles due to a potential problem with the driver knee airbag. During vehicle assembly, it is possible that the driver knee airbag may have not been properly fastened to the instrument panel. This could have an effect on the knee airbag deployment that can increase the risk of injury during a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealers will inspect the driver knee airbag assembly and replace it with a new one, if necessary, at no cost to customers. Lexus will begin to notify owners by late April.
