2006 Lexus GS 450h Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 312012

GS 450h 8-cyl

  • 45,316 miles


The vehicle lost the power on the middle of the road with battery light and brake light on. After towing the vehicle to near by auto repair shop, the mechanic replaced the alternator and battery light and brake light were off; however the steering wheel is 90 degree off the center plus warning lights including check engine light, afs light (blinking), traction control light were all on. The mechanic could not detect or correct this problem so I took the car to the Lexus dealer and they could not detect what caused the wheel to turned and lights turned on and it costs me $575 to turn off all the lights and restore steering wheel to the original position. Since the warranty on the car ran out, the Lexus corporate refuse to hear this issue and will not investigate the problem. I believe there is major flaws with this model and there was one previous recall related to steering wheel componant on this model. Also, ls 460 model already has exact same recall issue with steering wheel going off the center to 90 degree after excerting some force. On other separate note, the rear suspension on both sides of my car are leaking, given that my car has only about 45,000 miles. Again Lexus refuse to handle this issue since the warranty ran out. I paid close to $60K on this 2006 Gs 430 and Lexus had repeatly overlooked at these defective issues.
