Inverter Recall For Rx400H


Recommended Posts

Have a look at the following http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43574776/ns/business-autos/

It looks like the recall is only for US vehicles, which I believe are manufactired in Canada.

As far as I am aware UK RX400h vehicles are manufactured in Japan so the recall may not affect UK vehicles.

Just been on the LEXUS UK web site and the Recall is mentioned on there. You put in your VIN number and you can see if your vehicle is effected. It says vehicles made between 2004-2006. Mine is a july 2006 uk model and after putting my VIN number in it says that , we have identified that your lexus " IS " subject to a recall and will need to be assessed at a centre convenient to me, As i recieved a letter the other day telling me my Local Lexus dealer ( NORWICH ) is closing, the nearest to me Ipswich,Cambridge are hardly convenient!!

Lexus will contact me directly with more info. Will wait and see what happens.

I phoned the contact number this morning who in turn put me through to Lexus Ipswich. They have taken all my details, but as yet have not been given a way forward from Lexus, but have informed me that i will be contacted as and when. They told me that no reported accedents have been reportred world wide and to follow the advise from Lexus (where ever that is published ?) and avoid rapid acceleration. The contact centre said "inverter replacement" recall. Will see what happens.

called Lexus Bradford as ours was subject to recall according to the main site. And they advised to wait for the letter from VOSA and Lexus then call as the part has not been sent out as yet. So advice is wait for the letter and hope nothing happens

I had my inverter changed last year for nothing, which was fantastic. This was done at Norwich. I don't know if Dingles Toyota by Norwich Airport will do the recall work; because when I rang them last week they are still servicing Lexus models and have a full parts service. Might be worth a try. Energyman.

I received a letter this morning informing me that my car IS in for a recall on the hybrid inverter. The car is a 2005 UK version. Rang my local Lexus dealer and they confirmed that I will be contacted by them in the future, so this is not aimed at the US market only.
