The SRS airbag light went off, needs a new sensor which Is around $1700. The airbags won't work unless the sensor Is replaced which Is a huge safety issue.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2008 Lexus Is 350. Upon attempting to pull into a parking space, the steering wheel locked. The contact was unable to get the steering wheel to unlock. The vehicle was turned off and would not restart. The vehicle was towed to a dealer for further inspection and diagnosis. The contact also received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V340000 (air bags). The dealer was unable to determine when the parts would become available for the recall repair. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was not available. VIN tool confirms parts not available.

It happened on two occasions. I was driving and decided to roll down my passenger window. I normally keep it closed. After a while, decided to close it and rolled up but it overshoot the window frame, that the glass almost fell off. I had to stopped and manually push it back in. I successfully rolled it up and kept it there for a week until my son rolled it down last March 1st,2015. It no longer will roll up. I took my car to palm beach Lexus on that same day. Apparently the plastic clip broke off and the entire window has to be replaced, for 600 usd. I have seen a lot of complaints online about this (mostly ES350), based on the number of complains this should be considered a defect and costumers shouldn't be paying for the replacement.

Over time, airbag wiring harness becomes loose and/or disconnected, causing airbag light to illuminate and disabling one or more airbags in the event of a crash. Lexus dealers confirm the problem but will not fix without costly payment......updated 12/03/15
