Kendall Lexus of Eugene Oregon Complaint - Defective 2009 Lexus RX 350
EUGENE, OREGON, OREGON -- I bought a brand new 2009 Lexus RX 350 from Kendall Lexus in Eugene Oregon. After taking delivery of the car I noticed a problem with the transmission.
Frequently when the transmission shifts from 1st gear into 2nd gear it slips, the engine revs up about 1000 rps and then catches into 2nd gear.
I contacted Kendall Lexus In Eugene Oregon and talked to the service manager. He informed me this was a factory defect in the transmission chip and he had told the sales people to notify potential buyers of this problem. I took the vehicle in and had him inspect it and was informed there was nothing he could do until Lexus made a new replacement chip.
I contacted Lexus customer care @ 1-800-255-3987 option # 3 and was told there is nothing that Lexus can do. I paid over $41,00 for a defective Lexus that they were aware of it being defective when they sold me the car. I want the car fixed.
Is there anything someone could do to help me?
