Toyota Motor Corp has issued a recall of certain model year 2013 Lexus G2 350 Sedans. There appears to be a problem with the steering which may lead to a crash.
On the affected vehicles the electronic control unit or ECU that controls the variable gear ratio of the steering system could cause the steering wheel to be off-center. In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the car maker said the problem can affect the car when it is restarted after being parked with the steering wheel turned.
If this happens the driver may not realize the steering wheel is off-center, and the car may move in an unexpected direction and possibly cause a crash.
The recall is to affect about 663 vehicles made between December 12, 2011 and February 7, 2012. To read more click here.
