Review

I bought my 2009 a year ago in 2017. Had no problems with the car until a few weeks ago, the car started smoking and I managed to stop the car in my driveway to notice that the oil was leaking out. Towed to a mechanic and they said there was a pinhole in the oil cooler hose. Apparently this was a defect in Toyota's and Lexus vehicles and Toyota sent a letter out to fix this for free up until 2013. I wish I had known this. If you own this vehicle and have not had this replaces, I would recommend going to a mechanic to see if it still has the old rubber hose and get it replaced. I am lucky that the engine didn't get ruined.

Review

Very comfortable ride, front seats comfortable, especially on long distance drive. Very dependable, and maintenance not a big issue since it tends not to break down.

Review

This was the car I wanted and could afford. Found one at an Acura dealer with only 75,000 miles and admittedly bought "as-is" with brand name confidence. A few months later, told needed complete steering rack replaced due to torn boot (this just doesn't happen over night). Mechanic said common defect on Toyota/Lexus products. I didn't know this! Oil pan gasket also leaking. Needs 2 new rear tires. Recently had to replace radiator and water pump. That amounts to almost $3000 in repairs. What else is going to break down?
