When depressing the remote or manually opening the rear lift gate sometimes the rear lift gate (door) will start to close automatically and it can only be stopped by pressing the remote or button on lift gate or applying large amount of pressure to hold door open. Twice a person has been in the line of fire and had to jump out of way when placing an item in the rear of the car. On another time the lift gate hit a person in the head when they did not get out of the way fast enough. The Lexus dealer has checked the auto closure system and replaced battery in remote and find nothing wrong. The problem still continues once in a while. This is very dangerous and a person could get pinned in the lift gate.

At approximately 4 in afternoon, I had come to a complete stop in front of my townhouse. My foot was still on the brake from stopping (I was just about to put it in park and take out key and unfastened seat belt) when it lurched forward and started to accelerate. I tried to steer and pump the brakes but nothing worked. It was totally out of my control. The car lunged forward going over the side walk and into my front porch, directly hitting my wrought iron bannister. The distance from the parking place to the bannister is about 10 feet. The car acceleration stopped on impact. I immediately called my insurance co and I called the police and filled out a police report. I live across from our community swimming pool. Children are constantly walking on sidewalk in front of my house on way to pool. Neighbors walk by my house to walk their dogs as well. Someone could have easily been injured or killed. I have not driven the car since the event. Lexus usa and the dealership will not address the problem with me. I bought the car..used..only 6 months ago. My car was damaged in the front, and my wrought iron bannister was destroyed. My main concern is the fact that the car displayed unintended acceleration and is not safe for anyone to drive.

While driving at highway speed the left rear quarter window molding came flying off my Lexus 2006 rx-330. Made a flapping noise previous to coming off. Checked on the web @ clublexus.com and found this to be a problem with a lot of other rx owners. If you are in warranty, no problem, but out of warranty like I am. Problem is that Lexus does not sell just the molding, you have to buy the entire window. The molding is on double stick tape onto the window rubber seal. Lexus P/N 62730-48230.
