The service (foot) brake is not holding pressure at a stop sign or stop light when the vehicle is in drive. Even though foot brake is applied fully, vehicle tends to move forward and may cause an accident with the car/object in front of the vehicle.

The Lexus Rx 330 is on recall by Lexus because the dash has developed cracks, I have been waiting 2 years for a replacement and was told by Lexus of orlando I am number 1024 on their list fro replacement. By the time they get to me according to my calculations the year will be 2095 at the pace that they are replacing the dashes. Also Lexus has a problem with their brake light switches, all of them seem to develop a problem where the vsc, brakes and ABS lights all come on at the same time. This problem has happened to all three Lexus' that I have owned. They are aware of the problem because right next to the shifter is a small cover to bypass the hard shifter.
