My 6 year old Lexus window molding flew off on both quarter size back windows in the last month. This is a hazard as it went flying off in the highway, one day and not even a month later, the other one flew off and almost hit a pedestrian. They said I will need to replace the entire window for the molding. This sounds like the window could possibly fly off as well if the molding isn't something you can just clip back on. There are several websites of this complaint, but Lexus is not willing to do anything. I have a message from Lexus headquarters stating since out of warranty they will not replace. I feel this is very dangerous and cheap of Lexus.

2005 Lexus RX330 while I am driving on freeway a driver rear quarter window's molding felt out off. I contacted Lexus headquarter rise an issue, I do reseach online forums to find down alot of same problems. I talked to Lexus headquarter personnel I think its a manufacture defective, but they denied that. Since my car out of warranty Lexus just pay half of replacement cost. I think it unfair should be replaced by Lexus Corp cost.

The vehicle was taken back to the dealer a second time where the technicians stated the mirror needed to be replaced but it would not be covered under warranty. The vehicle was not repaired.
