Low milage always garaged 96 Lexus LS400. When we drive the car for over 1 hour on the freeway at an avg speed of 65mph, then either you slow down for traffic or taking a exit, the motor turns off. No warning, very dangerous as the power steering and brakes obviously don't work easily. It's been to the Lexus Dealer shop twice, once for two weeks and they could not find anything wrong?
