Toyota will be asking the the owners of certain 2015 Lexus NX200 SUV’s to return to their dealerships for repairs affecting the braking and stability of their vehicles. According to the defect report, the affected vehicles are equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking system (ABS), Traction Control System (TRAC), and a Vehicle Stability Control System (VCS) which are controlled by the ABS actuator.

Due to the improper shape of a component within the actuator, it is possible that resin fragments could be created during the press fitting assembly. These fragments could become stuck in the actuator, delaying the oil pressure control when the Anti-Lock Brakes are activated, causing a loss of stability.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by first class mail to return to a Lexus dealer for inspection of the serial number of the ABS actuator, and if it is equipped with an affected actuator, will replace it with a new one. For more information about the problem, owners can contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. The NHTSA campaign number is 15V341.
