Toronto, Ontario – Toyota Canada is recalling the 2010 Lexus HS 250h hybrid. The voluntary recall addresses a compliance issue with the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.
In a crash test administered by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the HS 250h exhibited fuel spillage that exceeded the requirement in the standard.
During vehicle development, Lexus tested the HS 250h using the same protocol and found the vehicle to be fully compliant with the standard. It is currently working to identify the reason for the different test result and the cause of the noncompliance.
At present, Lexus has not identified a remedy to address the issue, but will notify owners as soon as one is developed. Until then, dealers will not deliver any new vehicles in inventory until the campaign is remedied.
