i became a victim of a curbstoner on august 30, 2004, when i bought a used vehicle (93 lexus ls400, vin: [xxx]) from a "supposed" washington auto dealer. his details are as follows: [xxx] [xxx] [xxx] [xxx] [xxx] he did not check any boxes on odometer disclosure/title extension statement, and told me that vehicles older than 10 years are exempt from mileage statement requirement. he wrote down exempt in place of odometer reading. when i checked with the lexus service center after the purchase, they gave me the history of the vehicle which shows that the mileage is 230,086 instead of 86,223. i paid $6,951 by a cashier's check. i used experian autocheck services and this odometer discrepancy did not show on their records. mark vayner intentionally and materially defrauded me. utilizing the e-bay motors vehicle purchase protection plan, i am writing this letter to formally complain about this odometer fraud. now, what can i do at this point? please let me know. thanks.

the tail light lense of the new lexus suv is clear/white plastic and is a safety hazard to the vehicle following it when the sun shines on it from that direction.i have been distracted/blinded a number of times.what ever happened to the law that required the tail lights to be red?toyota must think that this is a cool styling feature.this is a definite safety problem and should be addressed.

my lexus rx330 (2004) has 20,000 miles and the a/c has a foul odor which the dealership said is mold. they said the problem occurs when using recycled air function with the ac and said the manufacturer says not to use it because it allows mold to grow. they sprayed ac system w/ ac odor treatment. i think the mold is a safety problem as many people are allergic, and this is a defect with the ac system. service dept said the problem is occurring with other luxury cars (jaguar, bmw). *jb

2004 lexus rx 330 that has been taken to dealer on several occasions concerning the vibrating the car does at speeds of 65mph or more. the care does not do it all the time and rarely does it in within city miles. but once on the highway, the vehicle starts violently vibrating which makes it hard to try and keep the car steady on the highway. the sound of the engine changes and the speed drops down to around 60 while the episode occurs and then out of the blue it clears and the car drives normal. i have contacted lexus regarding the problem and the dealership claims they cannot find anything. i want this information on record in case of an accident and something happened to me while driving this car or to someone else as a result of the vibrating episodes. last occurrence was january 21, 07. i have not been back on the highway since then but occurrence was also on dec 17 while on the highway, aug while on the highway, mar, may, july all while on the highway, it even occurred in feb after picking it up from the dealer and the problem was supposedly taken care of. i don't know what els to do here but report the problem to you all. *tr

dear sir: i bought my lexus ls 430 brand new in 2002, and i love it very much except for one thing: the brake system. when i press the brake, my ls430 skids (forward), and does not stop in time. i thought it was my old man's driving habits. but i decided to visit the lexus dealer. the lexus dealer, after driving the car, told me it is normal for the abs system to do that, and i should not press the brake hard. well, i left the dealer, and a few meters away i was driving around 20-25 ml/h when the car ahead of me stopped, i pressed the brake, but my car - as usual- skid and hit the car in front of me causing very serious damage to my car ($9000). my question: does this accident prove that the lexus ls 430 abs brake system is flawed such that it skids when you most need it even at very slow speed? and how can i avoid such a dangerous situations in the future ? i asked two of my friends who have lexus ls430, and they totally confirmed my complaint. i am worried and scared to death that i might be in a very dangerous situation when i need the braking system of my ls 430 that will fail me as it did today and many times before. to be honest with you: i will definitely sell my lexus l 430 if your technicians can not fix the skidding problem. best regards *tr

dear sir: i bought my lexus ls 430 brand new in 2002, and i love it very much except for one thing: the braking system. when i press the brake, my ls430 skids (forward), and do not stop in a safe distance. i thought it was my driving skills. but i decided to visit the lexus dealer. the lexus dealer, after driving the car, told me it is normal for the abs system to do that, and i should not press the brake hard. well, i left the dealer, and a few meters away i was driving around 20-25 ml/h when the car ahead of me stopped, i pressed the brake, but my car - as usual- skidded forward and hit the car in front of me causing very serious damage to my car. i took the car to lexus workshop, which charged the insurance company $ 9000. i contacted the saudi arabian standards organization (www.saso.org.sa) and told them about the barking system failure in this accident. they sent technicians and tested the car at lexus workshop, and found an abnormal forward skidding when pressing the brake at low speed, and wrote me a report of their findings. for your information this is the same organization who discovered the technical failure in the firestone tires fitted on the ford explorer few years ago, which resulted in a very costly recall to ford corp. i wrote the saudi lexus authorized lexus dealer about this problem, but no answer received. i cannot take on this powerful lexus dealer alone. i do need all the help i can find to expose this dangerous braking failure in the lexus ls430. i have many friends who own the same lexus model and have the same complaint. please advice me how can i stand up to this powerful dealer and the mighty toyota/lexus company. i am worried and scared to death that i might be in a very dangerous situation when i need the braking system of my ls 430 that will fail me as it did today and many times before. to be honest with you: i will definitely sell my lexus l 430 if the brake system is not fixed. *tr

hello, i have a 2010 lexus hs250h. the car is wonderful, but since it has recently started raining in my area, i have had several experiences when my right tires go over two small metal plates in the road near my house and i apply the brakes and the car seems to go out of control. it appears to seize and slip, and it is very frightening. as a result, i have been driving around the metal plates to avoid them. however, if i don't know the area i cannot always anticipate this type of problem. *tw a second problem i have had with the car, is when i drive through a pothole in the road, it also appears to go out of control, surging and stopping. i consider these two situations to be safety issues, and i have never experienced them with any other cars i have driven in almost 35 years.

on at least three separate occasions, my lexus hs 250h has had a sensation of losing its brakes. each occurrence happened while slowing to a stop on a bumpy road. as the brakes are applied to stop, if the car hits a pothole or bump, it feels as though i am on glare ice with no deceleration at all. the sensation lasts only a moment and then normal braking resumes. it seems to only happen at slow speeds on a bumpy road. in each case it was noticeable enough that my adrenaline kicked in. i have reported this to the dealer and to lexus. no repairs or other actions have been taken yet.

there is a coating inside the condenser that flakes off and blows into the cabin of the vehicle. it is like sand. i am told it is aluminum hydroxide. my wife and i were told it was safe and we could take our trip. during the trip we breathed in this stuff flying in the car. we ended up with sinus infections. it is troubling that it was blown off as no big deal. the part was replaced, but i worry that other people might end up with the same problem. *cn

this is not a complaint, just a suggestion here is a question for the engineers in this office. could the automatic transmissions in toyotas be one of the causes of unintended acceleration? toyotas use their own ect-i transmission management, and i recall that the woman from tennessee who testified in congress said that shifting to neutral and reverse did nothing to slow down her lexus. didn┐t her husband also say that when the car was stopped at roadside, just shifting the transmission caused it to start? if i am not wrong, there is no mechanical linkage between the shifter stalk and the transmission. it┐s the computer that does the shifting. so i wonder what people here have to say. note that manual transmissions in toyotas don┐t have this ect management. *tr
