Where we have experienced near deadly transmission hesitations of needed power getting into oncoming traffic. I noticed the transmission hesitates under certain conditions, notably when slowing down and commencing acceleration while still moving. The other thing we were not happy with is the interior lighting - it is pretty dull and doesn't have any lighting in the back at all. In mid-September, Toyota ordered 1,400 Toyota and Lexus dealers nationwide to ensure that each new, used and loaner vehicles had the proper floor mats and that the mats were properly secured. Again, let me stress, I feel that the car is unsafe in making left hand turns with oncoming traffic. One driver told the agency the vehicle had hit speeds of 100 m. The maintenance light is preset to come on at certain mileage marks by the automaker.
However, it is one of the best riding cars in its class. . The approximate failure mileage was 212,000. The drive is crisp, responsive and fast, with zero to 60 miles per hour in 6. A good work-horse, but with comfortable ride for around town work. More than 370,000 of the vehicles under recall were originally sold or are currently registered in 22 cold weather states and the District of Columbia.
This is the first car I have had to have this problem. It offers not only sleek yet distinctive design but also excellent refined engines, bulletproof reliability and great quality. Toyota will notify the Toyota and Lexus owners. Numerous complaints to Lexus have only brought the response that this is a known defect, but Lexus will not correct the problem. I always have to look over my shoulder before getting in the other lane.
General Motors will contact the Pontiac owners. The transmission also operates excellently with manual or automatic mode, upshift or downshift. Since I get to drive two other Toyota cars with auto transmissions and they work just fine I can tell quite easily there is a big problem with this transmission. The recall is the latest in a reputation-damaging series that began in the fall of 2009, mainly involving complaints of unintended acceleration linked to defective floor mats and gas pedals. Seemed premature to me based on rear brake wear I have experienced with my previous vehicles.
Love this comfortable driving vehicle. Numerous complaints to Lexus have only brought the response that this is a known defect, but Lexus will not correct the problem. I'm sure you will not be disapointed. I first discovered that it would fail like this on I10 in Texas near Houston where traffic was slow due to road construction. Based on previous Lexus products, we have no reason to think it won't. The engine and transmission combination deliver smooth, quiet, responsive power, and the six-speed automatic contributes to the noteworthy highway fuel economy rating.
I don't know if anybody has been in an accident, but it certainly seems like an accident risk to me. The light is prompting the owner to have service completed that's in the owners manual or by contacting the dealership. Steering system has transmitted more road vibration and play than before repair. We took the car to the dealer a 2nd time -- valencia Lexus and the manager told us nothing is wrong with this car. It hesitates when I take turns, or when I stop at traffic lights and stop signs. Corporate Toyota needs to recognize this problem and come up with a fix.
The dealer had to walk me thru to install the connection. Sudden and unintended acceleration cases carry a stigma in the U. I plan on keeping mine for a very long time. This is the first car I have had to have this problem. When the driver takes his foot off the gas and slows down, then steps back on the gas, there is a hesitation and at times a jerking in the transmission. In addition to the smooth, refined operation, the Lexus powertrain also promises exceptional reliability and peace-of-mind. Toyota's numbers for interim notification for this campaign are G1P Toyota Zone A , G1R Toyota Zone B , H1A Toyota Zone C , G2G Lexus Zone A , G2H Lexus Zone B and H2A Lexus Zone C.
Never had that sort of experience before with a dead battery. After driving it for a month or two. Just point it and go. The date inserted below is the date I purchased the car. But does it deliver the Lexus marketing stamp - a look and feel that appeal both to the heart and the head? The Japanese automaker warned owners that if they think their vehicle is accelerating out of control, they should check to see whether their floor mat is under the pedal. If a driver can't remove the floor mat, Toyota advises drivers to step on the brake pedal with both feet until the vehicle slows and then try to put it into neutral and switch the ignition to accessory power. Options include the panorama glass roof, Bluetooth technology, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, heated and ventilated front seats, adaptive front lighting system, 13-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, rearview camera with a color image on the navigation screen and a fifth-generation navigation system with a multi-information display.
