WASHINGTON (AP) - Toyota Motor Corp. says it intends to recall 138,000 Lexus vehicles in the United States to fix faulty engines in the latest quality problem at the world's No. 1 automaker.
The company says flaws in valve springs, a crucial engine component, could make the vehicle stall while in motion. Toyota said in a statement Friday it plans to file paperwork on the recall with the government next week.
The recall affects certain GS, IS and LS vehicles from the 2006-2008 model years.
Toyota had announced it would recall 270,000 Lexus vehicles around the world to address the engine problem.
