Exact Model: Lexus RX300 and Lexus RX400h (MZ Engine)
Description: STEERING MAY BE AFFECTED
VIN:
Build Date: 1 jun 2004 to 31 mar2005
Numbers: 4162
Defect: Due to a none conformance to specification, the front crankshaft pulley inner and outer rubber mounted section may separate. If the separation occurs noise will become apparent, the ignition warning lamp may illuminate and, in the worst case, the power steering drive belt may detach from the pulley which will result in the driver having to significantly increase their effort to steer the vehicle, especially at low speed.
Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected to check and where necessary replace the crankshaft pulley.
Launch Date: 18 January 2012
   
Recall: No. 2 of 3
Recall Ref: R/2013/104
Exact Model: RX400h
Description: VEHICLE COULD SUDDENLY STOP
VIN: JTJHW31U##2000101 to JTJHW31U##2867596, JTJHW31U##0001030 to JTJHW31U##0049415
Build Date: April 2006 to December 2008
Numbers: 9559
Defect: It is possible that due to variations in the build specification of the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) which includes the Insluted-Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT's) the lead-based solder could be affected by abnormally higher operating temperatures. This could result in a degrading of the solder and eventually heat damage to the IGBT's. If this occurs then warning lights on the instrument panel will illuminate. However if the driver fails to heed these warnings or the main power supply fuse blows then the vehicle could stop without warning.
Action: Recall all the affected vehicles and replace the IPM unit with a upgraded unit.
Launch Date: 16 October 2013
   
Recall: No. 3 of 3
Recall Ref: R/2011/076

VIN: JTJHW31U#02000101 to JTJHW31U#02008127, and JTJHW31U#00001030 to JTJHW31U#00049415
Build Date: 24 Sep 2004 to 9 Aug 2006
Numbers: 3997
Defect: The Intelligent Power Module within the inverter system may fail. This will result in various warning lamps being illuminated. In most cases this will result in the vehicle entering the fail-safe mode, resulting in limited power. In limited instances the fuse on the power supply circuit could blow resulting in the hybrid system stopping.
Action: Replacement of the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) in the inverter assembly.
Launch Date: 05 August 2011
