Toy­ota to re­call Lexus ve­hi­cles from 2006-08 for en­gine flaw

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

Toy­ota Mo­tor Corp. said it in­tends to re­call 138,000 Lexus ve­hi­cles in the United States to fix faulty en­gines in the lat­est qual­ity prob­lem to af­flict the world’s No. 1 au­tomaker.

Toy­ota said flaws in valve springs, a cru­cial en­gine com­po­nent, could make the ve­hi­cle stall while in mo­tion. The re­call af­fects cer­tain GS, IS and LS ve­hi­cles from the 2006-2008 model years pow­ered by 4.6 and 5.0 liter V-8 en­gines and 3.5 liter V-6 en­gines. No ac­ci­dents or in­juries have been re­ported. Ve­hi­cles from the 2009 and 2010 model years are not af­fected.
