LEXUS MALAYSIA TO CONDUCT SPECIAL SERVICE CAMPAIGN FOR LS460 MODEL.
KUALA LUMPUR, July 2 — UMW Toyota Motor, the exclusive distributor of Lexus vehicles in Malaysia, will conduct a special service campaign for its LS460 model following news reports on engine stalling problem.
It said the campaign will address valve springs improper functioning found in some V8 (4.6L) and (3.5L) engines produced between August 2006 and July 2008.
A small possibility of abnormal engine noise or unstable idling may occur, it said in a statement.
“In very rare instances, there is a chance the engine may stop while driving. However, no other Lexus or Toyota models in Malaysia face this problem.
“Lexus Malaysia is taking action to contact owners of about 100 affected Lexus models,” said UMW Toyota in a statement.
