Lexus is recalling its ES 350 and ES 300h models due to a potential problem with the pre-collision system.

Seems the system software is, on occasions, a little too keen, with Lexus identifying a fault that sees the software recognise everyday road hazards as threats.

A steel expansion joint or a plate that crosses the road surface may cause the system to engage its pre-collision procedures unnecessarily.

This may include an unnecessary application of the car’s brakes, accompanied by a warning message to the driver.

Lexus says if one of its ES 350 or ES 300h models were to brake for no reason, other road users may be put at risk.

The carmaker is targeting a specific list of Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs).

Honda is recalling some of its 2015 Civic hatch models, due to a pre-delivery oversight.

Selected examples of the Civic hatch were delivered to customers in Australia with the owner’s manual for the European Union.

As such, the manual does not contain information relevant to Australian owners, including rear centre child seat anchor point installation, maximum towing weight and more.

Lexus and Honda will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
