TORONTO, Ontario – April 13, 2022 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2022 Lexus NX (including Hybrid and PHEV) vehicles in Canada. Approximately 506 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 dealer will inspect the welding near the shock absorber mounting areas. For vehicles with missing spot-welds, Toyota is developing the remedy for this condition and will notify owners after the remedy is developed.
Owners of involved vehicles will be notified by the middle of June 2022.
