Lexus To Replace Valve Springs In Premium Vehicle Models

Lexus New Zealand is to assure trouble-free motoring for 185 owners of its premium V8 and GS450 hybrid vehicles by replacing their engine valve springs.

Routine long-term reliability tests in Japan have discovered a manufacturing flaw in some springs, which could cause abnormal engine noise or unstable idling.

Debbie Pattullo, National Manager for Lexus New Zealand, says the springs will be replaced over the next few months, purely to remove the possibility of future problems.

"Lexus is committed to ensuring its customers have an exemplary experience with their vehicles, and that includes ensuring all future owners also receive the highest possible care.

"While no problems have been reported, and the chances of an incident are remote, Lexus wants to replace the springs so it can be confident no future problems will occur."

The work will be completed at Lexus dealers free of charge, and the affected drivers will have the use of a premium Lexus car while their vehicle is being serviced.
