Toyota recall covers Lexus LS cars

According to an article in the Detroit News, Toyota Motor Corp. will recall its top-end Lexus LS sedans on Friday to fix a steering problem that prompted complaints in Japan, the company’s U.S. sales arm said Wednesday.

The Toyota recall announcement came hours after its Japanese parent company said it would recall 4,500 2010 Lexus LS models in Japan to fix the problem.

Toyota received 12 complaints in Japan, but is not aware of any accidents related to the issue, spokesman Paul Nolasco told the Associated Press.
