Lexus Recalls Nearly 4000 Vehicles

By ,

Lexus has issued a recall of 3922 vehicles including the GS 350 (2007 to 2011), IS 350 (2006 to 2011) and IS 350 C (2010-2011). On certain vehicles, the bolts used to secure the housing and sprocket of the intake-side Variable-Valve Timing (VVT) gear assembly could loosen and fall.

Engine stalling, thus propulsion may occur, which could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the VVT unit with an improved version.
