TSB's

Headrest deployed without crash

Some 2010-2011 model year Lexus GS 350/450h/460 vehicles may exhibit a condition where the active headrest activates without a collision event, causing a poor appearance. This condition may be present on both front seats. A revised Active Headrest Lower Unit has been developed to address this condition.

This TSB applies to vehicles produced before the production change effective VINs shown here:
