Toyota today announced a recall campaign for 348 of the previous generation Land Cruiser Amazon models that have the potential to be affected by a rare steering related issue. This has been confirmed with Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA).

The recall is to replace a snap ring bracket within the steering mechanism that could become detached due to violent impact with a large pot hole or obstacle. In the rare event that this occurs and the vehicle is then subjected to repeated application of full, opposite lock, the steering may become inoperative. There have been only two reported incidents in Europe and no reported accidents related to this issue.

In the UK, the recall will affect 348 of the Land Cruiser Amazon built between July 2002 and September 2006. In a related recall action in other countries a sister model, the LX 470, never sold in the UK, will also be subject to a recall action.

(N.B. An unrelated recall action for the Toyota Avalon, a saloon model not sold in the UK, is also announced today, mainly for vehicles sold in North America).

No other Lexus or Toyota vehicles sold in the UK are affected.
