Thousands of Lexus cars recalled for steering fix

NEW YORK (AP) - Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling about 3,800
Lexus LS sedans in the U.S. to fix a problem with the steering
system.
The Japanese automaker earlier recalled 4,500 LS models in Japan
to address the same steering issue.
The company says the recall affects late 2009 and certain 2010
LS 460 and LS 600h sedans. The recall fixes a problem that could
cause the steering wheel to become off-center during a specific
driving maneuver.
Toyota has been working to react faster to problems after being
slapped with a record $16.4 million fine for its slow response to
its accelerator pedal recalls. Those recalls affected more than 8
million vehicles worldwide.
The LS 460 is Lexus's full-sized sedan. The LS 600h is the
hybrid version.
