Lexus Complaint - GS400 Nightmare - 2 New Starters, New Transmission, Ongoing Issues
I bought a Lexus because of the reputation. Unfortunately, my experience has been a nightmare. A few months into owning the vehicle the starter burned out. Apparently, there was a wiring issue and the battery was incorrectly grounded. The dealership couldn't find any wiring issues. Almost 1 year later, I begin having strange electrical issues, all the dash warning lights appeared & my car stopped engine was still going while the car stalled on the freeway. I had to disconnect the battery to stop the car even though the keys were not in the ignition. The outcome - another starter. About 6 months later, my car engine light came on & the outcome was a new transmission. The transmission was brand new but continues to delay between 1 & 2nd gears & hesitates at 60 MPH. Since then, $8,000 dollars and counting, I have continued to experience issues.
Recently, my car security system wouldn't stop, as a result the battery drained, I towed my car back to dealership and they came up with another new electrical issue w/my driver door alarm sensor...REALLY?
I will NEVER ever buy another Lexus. Especially if the dealership can't find the solution but they keep finding every other small nickel & dime issue in the meanwhile. Still waiting....
