GX 470

  • miles


I have a 2004 GX470 SUV. Today I was in a parking lot, trying to back out and leave. With one foot on the accelerator, I found it stuck, which was odd, as I had not experienced it before. So I pressed on it again, I thought, lightly. I was taken completely by surprise, as I seemed to have flown backwards, as I have a V8 engine, my acceleration was quick and my car immediately rammed into 2 parked cars behind me. I was in a state of shock and very scared, since it was so fast and sudden. Has anyone else experienced anything like this before? thank you.

1. my dash board has cracked, I took it to woodfield Lexus in Chicago, they did some patch work, but now more cracks have appeared and I feel it may interfere with airbags. www.clublexus.com/forums/gx-first-generation/603916-my-dashboard-is-cracking.html by going though the forums, it seems cost of replacing 1200 to 3000 dollars is a lot of money for the part which should not crack in the first place. Obviously it is defective material, Lexus has been using to make dashboards 2. chrome plating on my wheels is coming off badly.
