I have a major problem with the paint chipping on this car, I think its absolutely ridiculous that everyday I have another chipping on the hood of my car, and it only had 76,000 miles on it when this problem beagn. I have read other reviews and people have the same issue. it takes away from the value. In addition I have replaced the transmission and water pump. I get regular oil changes every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. I wish I could get another paint job, I would feel so much better about the money I've spent on repairs.
Bought it when it had just 70K on it, and now at 75K it has had: TWO oil changes (leaking oil internally), Heater Coil replaced (no heat most of the "worst winter in HISTORY"), Thermostat replaced, Coolant/Coolant Housing replaced (it's now low again) has a very loud piston-slapping coming from engine (sounds like a diesel), and currently needs spark plugs (supposed to be changed at 120K) and an o2 Sensor. Not to mention the VERY soft paint (chips everywhere), the fact that it eats brake pads, and will most likely [non-permissible content removed] on me very soon (any day now). I am never buying a Lexus again, this car SUCKS!
Lesson: I should have bought the Infiniti
Doesn't matter anymore.
Take responsibility for this engineering nightmare
