Toyota has announced a recall of some 2019 Lexus ES vehicles. This move by the automaker affects about 560 vehicles that have already been delivered to their customers in various locations.

The company believes that there is the possibility that the airbag for the driver’s knee was not well fastened to the panel. This increases chances of knee injury in the event of a crash.

Upon return of recalled vehicles, dealers of Lexus will carry out proper inspection of the knee bag in the driver’s corner. If any issues are observed, they will replace it with a new one at no cost to customers. Owners of the affected brand will start receiving notification from Lexus come April 2019.

To ensure that owners of affected vehicles are aware beforehand, the automaker has created a designated page on their website for verification. If for any reason you feel that your vehicle is affected, log onto Toyota.com/recall or nhtsa.gov/recalls. On the page, enter your license plate information or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Automakers sometimes recall delivered vehicles if they have any reasons to believe that the safety of their customers is at stake. Cost of changes or repairs made during recalls are completely on the automakers.
