Toyota (China) Automobile recalls 14,799 defective Lexus vehicles 

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has alerted the motoring public, particularly those using Lexus NX260, Lexus NX3650h and Lexus NX400h+, manufactured between 31 March, 2021 and 26 April 2022 to  a faulty programming of the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system, which has prompted the company to recall the categories of the  vehicles.

A press statement issued by Assistant Corps Marshal Corps Public Relations Officer, Bisi Kazeem, the report contained in a memo forwarded by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said the company is also recalling 6,491 Lexus NX260 with defective Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system, which was manufactured between 19 April 2021 and 15 July 2022.

“The withdrawal is specifically premised on the fact that the vehicles will pose safety hazard to their users thereby leading to crashes. 

“The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu is by this notice, admonishing the general public, particularly dealers and drivers of these categories of vehicles, to desist from selling or using the identified vehicles  on Nigerian roads  to avoid any mishap,” the statement said.
