2006 Lexus RX330 Reviews
I have a 2006 RX330 I bought new. It has less the 46,000 mile on it. That average around 7500 miles a year. I have had it service regularly with the dealer. I have the 35,000 mile maintenance done on it at around 43,000 mile on 7/2012. 0n 9/2/12 it started to leak red fluid from under the engine. Took it to the dealer. They told me that the gasket on the differential had broken effecting my transfer case and possibly cause a radiator leak the size of a pinhole. How can this happen when I had your dealership just do the 35000 mile maintenance and I just put less they 1400 mile since the maintanence. Before the maintenance it was running fine. Needless to say it put me in the hole for $2500.00. I don't think it was the car but the people working on the car that may have cause this damage.
