2003-2007 Lexus LX 470 recall for steering column fault

The hits just keep on coming for Toyota, as they’ve announced yet another recall, this time covering 39,000 Lexus LX 470 4x4s built between 2003 and 2007.

According to Toyota, a snap ring that retains two sections of the SUV’s steering column can get dislodged following a heavy impact on the front wheels, such as hitting a severe pothole. Without the snap ring in place, using the steering can result in the column working itself free.

Toyota claims that no accidents have resulted from the problem and that a redesigned snap ring will keep the part where it belongs. LX owners can expect to receive notifications starting in about two weeks.
