Lexus recalls 2016 RX over faulty airbag
Lexus is recalling a small batch of its new-for-2016 RX 350 and RX 450h over an issue with the crossovers’ knee airbag module.
Lexus announced on Wednesday that it is recalling about 5,000 units of its 2016 RX 350 and RX 450h crossovers to address a knee airbag module that might not have been manufactured properly. The potentially faulty airbag might not performance as intended in the event of a crash, which Lexus says could increase the likelihood of injury.
Lexus did not mention if any injuries had been linked to the defect.
Lexus dealers have been instructed to inspect and replace the knee airbag where required. The service will be provided free of charge.
