headlamp lens fog up, reducing illumination dramatically and causing a saftey hazard when driving at night. have noted much newer models with the same problem, so it is obvious to me that this is a manufactuer's defect and not normal wear and tear. other issues include premature: speedometer needle light failure, cd changer failure, and cracked dash air vent frames.

1994 lexus model ls400. instrument panel will not light up in cold weather. cannot see speedometer and gauges do not work. this defect did not manifest itself until i moved from calif to iowa where the weather is cold. this is a serious safety hazard and lexus will not admit they have a problem but say they can fix it for $2000+. i think these vehicles should be recalled to correct this problem. *jb

the whole dash will not light up when the weather is cold, causing driver not to see any of the warning lights, speed, or fuel level. i believe this leaves the car occupants in a very dangerous situation. the lexus dealer wants an absurd amount of money ($1500) to fix problem, which i believe is a factory design flaw and needs to be recalled. just over researching this problem in 1 day i have found almost 50 people with the same problem from the same car.*jb
