The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

BEI­JING: Toy­ota Mo­tor (China) In­vest­ment Co said Wed­nes­day that it will re­call 126 ve­hi­cles in China due to prob­lems that could pose safety risks.

The re­call, set to be­gin on April 9, af­fects 126 im­ported Lexus ES350 ve­hi­cles man­u­fac­tured be­tween June 22, 2012 and May 19, 2015, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment by the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Qual­ity Su­per­vi­sion, In­spec­tion and Quar­an­tine, the coun­try's top qual­ity watch­dog.

In cer­tain sit­u­a­tions, the Pre-Col­li­sion Sys­tem (PCS) in the af­fected ve­hi­cles could in­ter­pret steel joints or plates on roads as trig­gers for PCS ac­ti­va­tion.

If this oc­curs, the PCS warn­ing buzzer will sound and the sys­tem may ap­ply the ser­vice brake au­to­mat­i­cally. Un­ex­pected brak­ing could in­crease the risk of a crash, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment. The au­tomaker promised to check all af­fected ve­hi­cles, re­place de­fec­tive parts free of charge and elim­i­nate other risks. The state­ment said car own­ers should con­tact the au­tomaker via the hot­line num­bers 400810-2772 or 800-810-2772 for more in­for­ma­tion.
