Summary of Complaint

TRANSMISSION STARTED MAKING A WHINING SOUND AT CERTAIN SPEEDS ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF EARLIER. TOYOTA DEALER CONFIRMED ODD NOISE FROM TRANSMISSION, BUT SAID THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO APART FROM REMOVING TRANSMISSION. I WAS IN A NEARBY STATE WHEN THE TRANNY FINALLY WENT OUT - 1ST GEAR STILL WORKS AND SOMETIMES 2ND GEAR, BUT 3RD, 4TH AND REVERSE ALL WENT OUT WHEN I WAS ACCELERATING ONTO THE HIGHWAY - A LOUD BANG AND THEN IT REVVED UP LIKE IT WAS IN NEUTRAL EVEN THOUGH IT WAS IN DRIVE. I'M CONCERNED THIS WAS A DESIGN FLAW, BUT LEXUS DOES NOT AGREE AND HAS OFFERED NO COMPENSATION UP TO THIS POINT. THEY SAID IF I WANT TO TAKE IT FURTHER I NEED THE TOYOTA DEALER TO CONFIRM THE TRANNY IS OUT. I SAID THAT WOULD NOT BE DIFFICULT AND AM IN THE PROCESS OF DOING THAT NOW. I AM CURIOUS HOW SOME PEOPLE HAVE GOTTEN LEXUS TO PAY A PORTION OF THEIR BILL. I ENDED UP RENTING A UHAUL AND TRAILER TO GET IT HOME. *TR

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY MY CAR CEASED FORWARD ENGAGEMENT. I WAS ALMOST REAR ENDED HOWEVER, I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN MANEUVERING OFF THE FREEWAY. I WAS STRANDED OUT OF TOWN FOR SEVERAL HOURS. AFTER HAVING TOWED TO A LEXUS DEALERSHIP IN SACRAMENTO FOR AN ASSESSMENT IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE TRANSMISSION MALFUNCTIONED AND ADVISED THE COST WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY $4,400. I CONTACTED THE LEXUS CORPORATION BECAUSE NO TRANSMISSION SHOULD FAIL ONLY HAVING 89,000 MILES AND 7 YEARS OF AGE WITH REGULAR MAINTENANCE. I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT THE LEXUS 1999 & 2000 RX300 MODELS HAVE A KNOWN TRANSMISSION DEFECT BUT NO RECALL, WHY? *TR

VIN: JT6GF10U5Y0****

Summary of Complaint

2000 LEXUS RX300. THE TRANSMISSION WENT OUT UNEXPECTEDLY AT 126,000 MILES. I HAVE SEVERAL OTHER VEHICLES (MAXIMA 292,000+ MILES, SILVERADO 1500 P/U 120,000+ MILES AND HONDA ACCORD 240,000+ MILES ) AND NONE OF THE WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE INFERIOR CARS HAVE HAD ANY SORT OF TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS. BUT A LEXUS , WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO MEAN QUALITY, GOES OUT AT ONLY 126,000. ACCORDING TO RECENT RESEARCH ON THE LEXUSCLUBOWNERS.COM FORUM IT APPEARS THAT THE RX300'S AND THE 330'S ARE PLAGUED WITH TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED BY THE LEXUS CORPORATION. *JB
