[canada] Lexus Is250 Recall?

Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

I just bought a 2010 Lexus IS250 last Wednesday. I'm starting to think I made the worst decision of my life.

I questioned the salesman on all of this and he said the mat had been adjusted and my particular car is safe.

A friend of mine has a 2008 same model. She got the letter you're talking about regarding the brake override system. I phoned my salesman a couple of days ago and asked him about this. He told me he would get back to me today.

I've been doing more googling and came up with this:


Toyota has announced the recall of the Lexus ES 350 & IS 250/350 models to have their accelerator pedals reshaped and/or replaced.

This recall is to be a permanent solution to the risk of unintended acceleration, no matter what floor mat is being used. Starting in early 2010, dealerships will be equipped to reshape the affected pedals by “shaving” a 3/4 inch from the existing pedal, followed by a brand new pedal in April 2010. In the case of the ES 350, the floor surface will also be reshaped.

Both affected Lexus models will be receiving a new brake override system that will cut engine power if both the accelerator and brake pedals are pushed simultaneously.


Under similar stories it says the recall has been extended to Canada.
