Lexus New Zealand has issued a recall for the NX 450h+ after identifying a problem with its DC-DC converter that poses a fire risk.
The luxury marque issued a statement saying that some of the electronic components in the plug-in hybrid SUV’s DC-DC converter may have been damaged during manufacturing.
If left unremedied, the problem could cause thermal stress to components outside the unit and possibly start a fire.
The recall affects models made between November 2021 and May 2022, which is a total of 51 vehicles in New Zealand.
Owners will have been contacted by means of their registered address, instructing them to contact their local Toyota or Lexus dealership to arrange a time for a precautionary fix to be made.
The work is said to take approximately two hours, depending on the vehicle and remedy required.
