Toyota Comments on Trunk Release Issue

December 12, 2012
Consumer Reports brought to our attention an issue on the Internal Trunk Release Lever (handle).  The handle can be used to open the trunk from the inside.  During our investigation, it was discovered that the lever can break if it is not pulled in the direction specified on the handle.
The part has now been changed in production vehicles, and Lexus is preparing parts to conduct a product update for existing customer vehicles.  The product update is anticipated to start when preparations are completed.  Additional information will be provided at that time.
