TORONTO, Ontario, (May 22, 2014) – Toyota Canada Inc. plans to conduct a voluntary recall of approximately 463 Model Year 2013 Lexus GS350 sedans.
The brake pedal assembly in the subject vehicles contains a brake pedal load sensing switch which allows the brake system to detect brake pedal force application by the driver. Due to a manufacturing error, there is a possibility that the switch could improperly cause the brake system to activate without driver input while driving and without activating the rear brake lights. This could result in unexpected moderate deceleration, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealerships will replace the brake pedal support assembly. Toyota is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fatalities.
