Review by zeno on 2009-01-19
MACON, GEORGIA -- Butler Lexus of Macon service department and Lexus does not stand behind it quality of perfection in Automobiles. I purchase a brand new Lexus and recently the low tire pressure light came own. We took it to a Toyoto dealership in Columbus Georgia. They said you must take it back to Butler Lexus in Macon so we did take on 30 Dec 2009. The service adviser said it comes due to weather drop below freeze outside that why the light came on. About 3 weeks later the same thing happen again. And I call Lexus roadside assistant and Butler Lexus and they do not provide any help with this matter. So Lexus of America is a riped off provided the perfection of pursuit of quality of their vehicles. This is the third time it had happen.

There is no recall on this from Lexus to any of it owners.

These sensors are on every new car and YES the are tempature sensitive. There will be no recall because that's how they are. Once the temp warms up it will stop coming on for no reason. But no matter what car it is there are all the same!

Ringo is basically corrrect. The sensors measure air pressure + or - 3 lbs, temperature affects the air pressure. You are gonna have the same problems in the summer with the indicator light coming on as you do the winter. You can't really blame Lexus because the entire industry is having problems with these sensors that the federal government required on ALL new vehicle produced after 2007. My personal opinion is that the tolerances are to tight on the sensors and should allow for a wider range of pressures
