2011 Lexus RX350 Problems

Massive Oil Leak and Loss of Oil Pressure

An VVT-i oil line on the Lexus RX350 is known to burst. This is a very large leak which covers the ground, engine, and undercarriage.

If the oil line ruptures while driving, the low engine oil message and engine oil pressure warnings will illuminate. Continued use after these warnings will result in complete engine failure due to oil starvation.

The line is known to be defective, and a revised part has been issued by Toyota, however, this revised part is known for the same issue.

To repair the issue, the line must be replaced, and the engine bay and undercarriage must be cleaned thoroughly.

Incorrect Calibration for ABS/VSC system

Thirty-two vehicles with vehicle dynamics integrated management (VDIM) may have the incorrect calibration for the hydraulic control valves. As a result, the right front wheel may not be controlled properly during ABS (anti-lock brake system) or VSC (vehicle stability control) actuation. This could result in increased stopping distances and/or a failure to adequately correct a vehicle skid, either of which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the brake actuator to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin during August 2011.
