Took vehicle in to Lexus dealership and was notified of "rack & pinion" issue, quoted $1256 to fix. After talking to several people I have realized how common this problem has always been in these vehicles and it has not been addressed by Lexus even after so many people with same issue keep coming forward. The dealership just says its part of maintenance, this has never been the case before in any other car I have owned. This needs to be addressed

I was driving in the passing lane at about 55 mph. The road was straight and level. The road was covered with a thin coating of slush. While driving the alarm signal began beeping. I took my foot off of the accelerator. The car then began drifting to the left, in the next few seconds the left wheels were 2 feet over the left lane. I tried to get the car back into the lane but the steering did not respond. A few seconds later the car began to drift to the right and rotate to the right. I then applied the brakes but they had little effect. Eventually the car slid off the road to the right stopping about 75 ft off the road, down a 20 foot slope. I believe that the stability control system failed to control the vehicle and did not provide adequate protection in this accident.

We bought a Lexus 450H 3 month ago. On last Saturday, when the car hit curb at starting speed, the steer wheel turns 90 degree. The left front tire has only very small impact, some dust mark can be easily wiped off. The car is still drivable, but we are afraid that this car may loss control very easily, especially when it is off road on bumpy road. Dealer is still talking with the factory to check whether the factory warranty will cover the damage.

Lexus hybrid SUV 2010 rx450H. Car was in snow setting and when I tried to brake on a light snow surface, there was no response from the brakes and I also was unable to steer. I continued forward until I reached clear pavement and was then able to brake. This happened 3 times today under the same conditions. Luckily no cars were coming or I would have been hit broadside on a busy street.

The contact owns a 2010 Lexus RX458. Whenever the steering base was adjusted an item could fall between the steering base and it prevented the contact from make a left or right turn. The contact is concerned about the safety risk since a part of his key chain was caught in the steering wheel. The current and failure mileages were 40.
