Base Sedan (3.0L V6 4-speed Automatic)
|Ratings Key||Minimal Problems||Moderate Problems||Significant Problems|
Occasional problems on this vehicle are failures of the Engine, the Air Fuel Ratio Sensor and the Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. Failure of the Engine is caused because the engine oil gels. Engine oil gelling will also cause excessive engine oil usage. When proper maintenance schedules for oil changes are followed, oil gelling should not occur. Lexus has issued an 8 year unlimited mileage goodwill repair for this condition. Failure of Air Fuel Ratio Sensors or MAF Sensor will cause a drivability problem, or cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The cost to repair the Engine is estimated at $4,500 for parts and $1,384.50 for labor. The cost to repair the Air Fuel Ratio Sensors is estimated at $310.67 each for parts and $97.50 for labor. The cost to repair the MAF Sensor is estimated at $207.96 for parts and $32.50 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
