2006 Lexus GS 300 Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 202008

GS 300

  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Lexus GS300. While backing up out of a parking space, the contact shifted into drive. He depressed the accelerator pedal and it extended to the floor and became stuck. He then depressed the brake pedal; however, the vehicle continued to move because the accelerator pedal was stuck. The contact crashed through the front glass window of a store. The contact and possibly one occupant in the store were injured. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to viele's automotive shop until it can be towed to the repair shop. The vehicle has not been repaired. The VIN and speed were unknown. The failure and current mileages were 30,000.

problem #1

Dec 282006

GS 300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
Uncontrolled acceleration of a 2006 Lexus gs 300 occurred during overtaking of another vehicle on a two lane us highway. Car was towed to a Lexus dealer (Lexus of ft. Wayne Indiana) where it was determined that the driver's floor mat was jammed against the accelerator pedal. The dealer stated that this was the only case of this to their knowledge. After seeing the NHTSA report of recall regarding different Lexus vehicles with the same problem I suspect that NHTSA has not been informed of the potential for the problem to be more widespread, potentially requiring a broader recall effort. The date of the incident (12/28/06) is approximate. I would expect that the exact date is available from the dealer. The information under "equipment" is not accurate as the choices make no sense.
