AIR BAGS

6/8/2016 - LAREDO, TX
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

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

2/25/2015 - ROME, GA
WHEN CRANKING THE CHECK ENGINE AND THE VSC AND TRACTION LIGHT ALL COME ON. HAD THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP PUT IT ON THE MACHINE SAID IT WAS SOMETHING WITH EMISSIONS THAT WOULD RUN AROUND 2K TO REPAIR AT THE LEXUS DEALERSHIP. VEHICLE RUNS PERFECT. LIGHTS WILL GO OFF AT RANDOM TIMES BUT THEN COME BACK ON. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND THE VEHICLE IS STILL RUNNING GREAT. OTHER OWNERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM ACCORDING TO MY GOOGLE INQUIRIES. I ALSO HAVE HAD MY ENTIRE DASHBOARD CRACK WHICH I UNDERSTAND LEXUS WILL BE FIXING AT NO COST TO THE CONSUMER.
