Lexus to Fix IS, ES, GS Models for Trunk Release Handle Flaw
Yes, it’s another one of those health and safety moments! Back in October, the publication found that people could easily get stuck inside the trunk, as the trunk release handle would snap if it was pulled in the wrong direction. So if you did kidnap somebody and put him in the back of the Lexus, chances are he would be forced to go along.
As you all know, all cars sold in the us starting with 2002 have to have a trunk release handle. Instead of waiting for an official NHTSA inquiry, Lexus is going to fix 700,000 sedans of its own accord. The list of affected models includes the 2007-2013 ES models, 2006-2012 IS models and 2013 GS models.
