They might have been named the most dependable brand four years in a row, but defects don't know that. Neither recalls as Lexus will call in 3,000 NX 200t crossovers for a defective braking system.
If it's not about airbags, then it is about brakes or any other component found in a car. Yes, ladies and gents, we're living in the age of the recall, and there's nothing we can do about it. Most unfortunate is that carmakers can't do anything about it, unless it's too late, and cars have to be called in for repair.

This time, Lexus announced that 3,000 2015 NX 200t SUVs in the US might show possible damage to the ABS actuator. For some reason, it is believed that this issue came up during assembly.

The involved vehicles are equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking system (ABS), Traction Control System (TRAC), and Vehicle Stability Control System (VSC) which are controlled by the ABS actuator. In some cases, a component inside the actuator could be damaged during assembly and later not operate properly.

Translated into a real-life situation, if the ABS is activated, the vehicle could lose stability and, therefore, the risk of a crash goes up. According to Lexus, "all known owners of the involved Lexus vehicles will be notified by first class mail. Lexus dealers will inspect the ABS actuator and if necessary replace it with a new one."

As this is the standard procedure for every recall campaign, owners will not be charged for the inspection and repair works.
