FRSC implores Nigerians to apply caution as Toyota recalls 14,799 defective Lexus vehicles 



The Toyota automobile company, in China, has recalled 14,799 defective Lexus vehicles. 

This information is obtained from a statement released  by the Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO) Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Bisi Kazeem, on Friday,November 4th, in Abuja.

Kazeem said, “FRSC wishes to draw the attention of the motoring public, particularly those who are using Lexus NX260, Lexus NX3650h, and Lexus NX400h+, manufactured between March 31, 2021, and April 26, 2022.

“This is because faulty programming of the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System, has been observed and this has prompted the company to recall the categories of the listed vehicles.

“According to the report contained in a memo forwarded by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the company is also recalling 6,491 Lexus NX260.

“This is with the defective Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system which was manufactured between April 19, 2021, and July 15, 2022,” he said.

Kazeem made it known that the withdrawal was specifically premised on the fact that the vehicles would pose a safety hazard to their users thereby leading to crashes invariably. 

He quoted the acting Corps marshal, Dauda Biu, as admonishing the general public, particularly dealers and drivers of these categories of vehicles, to desist from selling and buying. 

Biu also discouraged the public from using the identified vehicles on Nigerian roads to avoid any mishaps that may occur from the flaw in design.
