problem #4

IS 250

  • 45,000 miles


We have returned 2007 Lexus is 250 4 times to dealer for stalling while on highway. Dangerous scenario. Each time the service center stated the car was fixed only to get back on highway and again it stalls. The last two times the car would not go over 5 mph within 24 hours of when car was returned to us. The last three trips to Lexus have been within the last 2 weeks. I don't think Lexus has a grasp of why their cars are stalling.

Unintended sudden acceleration while braking for a stop sign in a residential area. This was the only time of the occurrence, was able to stop it by turning off the engine. Upon restart, problem resolved itself. It was taken to the dealer with description of the problem, they noted idle was up from 750 RPM to 1100 RPM, decided to keep it overnight for further investigation. We where contacted the next day and told that the problem was resolved. They advised us the found a loose battery connection. No parts replaced but resolution and problem don't make sense. We did not experience any other electrical problems before the issue. We have the factory oem standard floor mats, secured by the hook and it was not touching the accelerator pedal.

problem #1

May 192007

IS 250 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,300 miles
Vsc warning light came with check engine light. Pulled in a local dealership, was told car was ok to continue driving but make an appointment for service. Left dealership, went approx 0.5 miles to get gas. When I stopped the car there were loud scrambling noises like an animal was loose in the dash. Popped the hood, couldn't see anything- looked under car and all the transmission fluid was pouring out. Had car towed back to dealership. Still waiting for verdict. Car Is only 7 months old and this will be my 3rd time in the shop. At 3 months had to receive full wheel alignment due to severe shaking and pulling to the left. At 6 months brought car in complaining of a loud creaking during turns- arm bolt was loose and needed to be tightened. Also, the windshield makes a loud crack/pop noise every morning on my way to work. This car had excellent reviews, what happened!
