My wife's 2006 Lexus IS 250 with only 20k miles already needs, according to Lexus, over 19 new parts to make it run right. The front brakes, on the other hand, is my second problem. They squeak loudly and leave a heavy coating of dust on the front wheels after only a few miles after washing it. In the morning when the car is cold they seem to grab too quickly and cause jerky stopping. The quality of this car is not what I expected. When I contacted Lexus they told me they were going to fix the problem under the hood but not the brakes because it had too many miles on it.
The exterior visual. It is the only thing that is nice about this car.
Bring the quality back up to what the public expects.
