Another Toyota product has been subjected to a recall, although this time it's a make and model that is no longer on sale. It's the 2003-2007 Lexus LX 470.
39,000 LX 470s are being recalled due to a faulty steering shaft. Apparently, if the wheel is turned to full lock after too many shocks to the system, the shaft can disengage. No accidents have been reported so far.
Lexus will begin fixing afflicted models in the middle of August.
Owners can call 1-800-25-LEXUS or visit www.lexus.com/recall for more information.
