U.S. Lexus Recalls: Photo Gallery

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Toyota (TM - Get Report) has suffered yet another blow to its already fragile reputation with the announcement of engine problems potentially affecting hundreds of thousands of Lexus cars worldwide.

A day after announcing a year-on-year improvement in June sales, Toyota announced on Friday a recall of about 138,000 Lexus vehicles in the U.S. It's also recalling 90,000 Lexus and Toyota Crown vehicles in Japan.

According to a U.S. Toyota spokesman, appropriate action will also be taken in other markets due to the engine problems, including:

  • China: 5,800 vehicles
  • Korea: 3,700 vehicles
  • Taiwan: 3,000 vehicles
  • Europe: 15,000 vehicles
  • The Middle East: 9,700 vehicles
  • Canada and Hawaii: 4,000 vehicles
  • The problem, Toyota says, lies in engine valve springs being contaminated by foreign material, which could result in abnormal noise or idling in the engine. "In extremely rare instances, the engine may stop while the vehicle is in operation," the company said in a statement. "Lexus estimates that the likelihood of a customer vehicle experiencing this condition is two-tenths of 1%." No accidents in connection with this problem have been reported yet.
