Default Toyota recalling 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport over faulty ECU

From AB

Lexus Announces Voluntary Safety Recall of Certain 2013 Model Year GS
350 F Sport RWD Vehicles

On May 16, 2012, Lexus filed a Defect Information Report (DIR) with
the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicating it will
conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 650 early 2013
model year GS 350 F Sport Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) vehicles to update
the Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) electronic control unit (ECU)

On certain early 2013 model year GS 350 F-Sport RWD vehicles, the ECU
for the VGRS system could cause the steering wheel to become
off-centered when restarting the vehicle immediately after the vehicle
is parked with the steering wheel turned. Dealers will update the VGRS
ECU calibration to address the condition.

Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a safety recall
notification by first-class mail beginning in early June 2012.

Any authorized Lexus dealer will perform this update at no charge to
the vehicle owner. The repair is expected to take approximately 30
minutes depending on the dealer's schedule.

No other Toyota or Lexus models are covered by this safety recall.
