2007 Lexus GS 450h Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 222007

GS 450h 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19 miles


Since purchase (2/1/07), I have had neurological symptoms while driving the Lexus Gs450H. These include, at different times, tingling in the hands and feet, numbness in the face, stinging sensation in the eyes and dull headaches. These symptoms occur only when driving the Lexus Gs450H, and at no other time in no other car. The dealer and I worked months to rule out a number of possible causes without success. Finality, without another working theory about what the problem might be, I began to investigate electromagnetic field radiation (emf) coming from some part of the hybrid system as a possible cause. As the only rear wheel drive hybrid, the motor and generator are closer to the driver than any hybrid in production---in fact, right next to the driver and front passenger in the transmission housing area. Correlate this with power of Gs450H's hybrid motor and generator and emf has to be a considered as a cause. Lexus made no serious effort to test this car for emf. (for example, their tech asked to use my handheld gauss meter to take measurements). Subsequently, I han engineering firm specializing in emf measurement and shielding conducted a 30-minute study of emf emissions in the front seat area. Their instruments measured a sustained exposure of 100mg in the area of the driver"S and front passenger?S legs. These findings should confirm, at the very least, the need for further study of this vehicle for potential health and safety issues. Although there is not yet scientific consensus about emf radiation as a health hazard, the epa has advocated for "prudent avoidance" of emf radiation exposure. With sustained exposure of up to 100mg+ in the driver?S area, how is that possible in the Gs450H" I have no plans to bring legal action of any kind against Lexus, however, I cannot and will not sell this car before I have done all that I can to ensure that this vehicle is not a danger to others.
