PLANO, Texas, April 10, 2019 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2019 Model Year Lexus ES vehicles in the United States. Approximately 560 vehicles are involved in this recall.
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 2019.
