rotor problems continue
By 3.con on


2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


ought car from private party with 14K
miles--noted on first long trip that
car shuddered when braking at highway
speed. Took it in--needed new rotors.
I had read that Lexus was having
problems with the brakes, especially
Dealership (Concord Lexus) replaced the
brake pads and rotors @ no charge to us.
Shocking note from dealer that rear
tires will need replacing soon--only
14, 300 miles on them and no abuse.
Toyo tires, another warrenty issue, we
hope. Nice car---but the transmission
is not smooth and it hesitates when you
need to move out in a hurry. Not
powerful, good gas mileage, great
interior. No rattles---yet!
