problem #2

Nov 132006

L300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles


: the contact stated while traveling 25 mph, the steering wheel locked up, causing the vehicle to not be able to turn and crashed into a telephone pole. No injuries were sustained, and a police report was taken. The vehicle was at the service dealer, who could not determine the problem. The insurance company deemed the vehicle totaled.

problem #1

Dec 012005

L300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36 miles
My new 2005 L300 has been in the dealership 5 times for the shaking in the front suspension, it thumps and shakes throughout the front body, pedals and steering making handling difficult at higher speeds and especially in slush and snow. The tires have been replaced two times and balanced 5 times. Even though changing tires never stops the shaking. I've lost control on the highway causing the vehicle to swerve from side to side due to the control loss due to shaking. Although the dealer corrected some of the steering issues on the last visit the vehicle still shakes and thumps and is hard to control in certain situations.
