FRSC warns Nigerians on faulty Lexus vehicles in circulation


November 8, 2022

Nigerians have been alerted by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC)  to the recalling of some Lexus models due to faults detected in the automobile brand.

According to FRSC, the vehicle manufacturers are recalling Lexus NX260, Lexus NX3650h and Lexus NX400h+ manufactured between 31 March 31, 2021 and April 26, 2022 to work on the faulty programming of the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System.

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 April 19, 2021 and July 15, 2022.

A statement by the FRSC Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, an Assistant Corps Marshal Corps, said 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 is by this notice, admonishing the general public, particularly dealers and riders of these categories of vehicles, to desist from selling or using the identified motorcycles on Nigerian roads  to avoid any mishap,” he said.
