Lexus owners: expect another recall from Toyota soon
Lexus' U.S. Division issued a statement noting the reason for the potential recall is faulty valve springs. It identified the 137,000 cars affected in the U.S. as models IS 350, GS 350, GS 460, GS 450h, LS 460, and LS 600h L, but said it has not received any reports of accidents or injuries related to this issue.
"Due to slight variations during the manufacturing process, some foreign material may have contaminated the valve springs resulting in potential breakage," Lexus said.
The Crown sedan is not sold in the United States.
About 7.3 million Toyota vehicles have already been recalled in the U.S., the automaker's largest market. The company has faced accusations of delayed reporting of safety problems.
