Due to a defect in the control unit of the car engine Recall for a number of Lexus LC500h cars


The Public Authority for Consumer Protection, in cooperation with Saud Bahwan Automotive Group, has launched a recall campaign for 3 Lexus LC500h 2016-2018 models based on chassis numbers (JTHHY5AY3HA000138), (JTHHY5AY4HA000231) and (JTHHY5AY2HA000292)..


This recall comes because of a defect in control unit in the car engine hybrid leads to the failure to send signals to change the speeds from the engine control unit to the transmission within the required time, which leads to illuminate warning signals and lock the hybrid system resulting in loss of engine power and if engine power is lost while driving at high speeds, it will increase the risk of collision. Accordingly, the company will reprogram the Engine Control Unit (ECU) in the hybrid car.


The recalls underscore the Authority's efforts in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with automotive agencies to preserve the lives and safety of consumers, and provide the necessary protection for consumers, in line with its keenness to conduct continuous reviews of all products in the Sultanate’s market.
