I am the owner of a Lexus whose engine wires are soy based. 4 weeks ago my car was totally "dead" and I had it towed to the dealer who told me rodents ate the wires.the cost to repair the wires was $977 plus the cost of towing. This is negligence on the part of Lexus and a highway danger to all.I feel it is the responsibility of your organization to recall all cars that have soy based wires which is an extreme safety hazard for all on the road and have Lexus replace my wires with non soy wires and reimburse me for all costs of this situation.

Three major issues with this car, and lots of minor ones. 1. the brakes did not engage while slowing down in traffic. Hitting the brakes caused the car to lurch forward. 2. the electrical system seemed to turn off and all internal/external lights went off at night and I was unable to see the road. 3. the car slips and the systems to counteract slipping did not engage. There are issues with the navigation, the enform system and many other issues. Repeated attempts to resolve the problem with Lexus have met with no success. Regards, brian povlsen
