07-04-2010 08:39 BJT

WELLINGTON, July 3 (Xinhua) -- Toyota is to send recall notices to 185 Lexus owners in New Zealand as part of a world-wide recall of the vehicle, according to local media on Saturday.

Toyota is recalling 270,000 cars, including seven luxury Lexus models and the Toyota Crown, because of an engine fault.

Lexus New Zealand national manager Debbie Pattullo said the fault was detected in Toyota factories during testing and the recall is just a precaution.

Valve springs could have engine noise and unstable idling because of foreign particles.

She said customers will be notified of the recall early next week, but can still use their cars as normal.

Toyota New Zealand sells five models of the Lexus vehicle being recalled.
