Transmission Slips at 25,000 miles
By cyberchic on


2009 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


i bought this car as a cpo 9 months ago. 17000 miles on it. The transmission slips. when I slow down like to turn or in traffic and then step back on the gas, the car revs but its like its in neutral, then I hear a thump and it lurches forward. Or it will shudder for a second, then thud and lurch forward. I have been to the dealership 2x already. they say there is nothing wrong, this is how the car is designed to drive. A car this expensive should not drive like this. I called Lexus and I am awaiting a response back.

Best Features

heated seats, climate control, sunroof, auto open hatch, quiet ride. good stereo. headlights are awesome, they turn when you turn and give you good visibility

Worst Features

the hideous plastic hunk of junk console in the center - you would think they could have done better on this for the price. the hatch window doesn't open separately.
