I have had several problems with my 2001 XG300 since purchased in March 2001. I had to take it to the dealer because of hesitation on acceleration and making a rumbling noise in the engine 2 months after I purchased it. The first time the car was supposed to be fixed, I drove it less than 2 miles and it was doing the same thing. The second time the manager said he would take the care himself and after he putting over 50 miles on my care and keeping it 4 days it appeared to be fixed. More recently, the engine light came on the car was bucking while in gear and lunging while at a dead stop. They kept my car for 2 weeks to replace the induction valve, throttle body and gasket, air flow sensor. (they couldn't find the part anywhere in the country was what I was told) and after 2 weeks and $375 for a 30,000 mile check, the next day the care did the same thing. Returned the car they kept it 1 day stating it was computer problem and that night the car was still bucking while stopped. I will attempt to have it repaired again but I believe this car to be defective. This car has also been towed 3 times. Another incident, the car cut off and stayed in the dealership for 3 days for them to replace the battery. I will be checking the lemon law criteria.
