Avoid These Defective Lexus Automobiles, FRSC Warns Nigerians
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has raised an alarm to the motoring public over a factory fault and recall of some Toyota automobiles.
The corps said the affected vehicles will pose safety hazard to their users thereby leading to crashes.
This was contained in a statement signed by FRSC Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem fsi, an Assistant Corps Marshal in Abuja.
FRSC warned motorists, “particularly those who are presently using Toyota Lexus NX260, Lexus NX3650h and Lexus NX400h+ manufactured between 31 March, 2021 to 26 April 2022” about the faulty programming of the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System which has prompted the Company to recall the categories of the listed automobiles.
The statement said, according to the report contained in a memo forwarded by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, 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 admonished the general public, particularly dealers and riders of these categories of vehicles, to desist from selling or using the identified motorvehicles on Nigerian roads to avoid any mishap.
