RECEIVED A LETTER FROM LEXUS ON 11/20/2015 AND SPOKE TO LEXUS OF SAN ANTONIO, TX.,NORTH CENTRAL PARK. THE LETTER INDICATED THAT THE ENTIRE DASH BOARD HAD TO BE REPLACE DUE TO A FAULT OF COMPANY'S DEFECT EFFECTING THE AIRBAGS. I HAVE SINCE THEN RECEIVED A SECOND LETTER, AS IT WAS STATED, ON THE FIRST LETTER THAT A REPLACEMENT WOULD COME IN TO REPLACE THE OLD DEFECTIVE ONE. SINCE THEN LEXUS OF SAN ANTONIO HAS STATED, AS OF THIS MORNING, THAT THEY ARE REPLACING THEM AT 2 A WEEK AS PARTS COME IN. THERE ARE 100 VEHICLES IN FRONT OF MINE!!! IF THERE IS A TIME FRAME FOR REPLACEMENTS, I DON'T THINK MINE WOULD BE REPLACED EVER. STARTING FROM TODAY, THERE WILL BE 50 WEEKS TILL I GET CALLED IN. IS THERE GOING TO BE A SOLUTION FOR THIS REPLACEMENT? THANKS. ESTELA B. SALAZAR
