Lexus ES350 ProblemsShaking at 60 mph +
Car has a defective part which Lexus will not admit too, a defective axle assembly.
An VVT-i oil line on the Lexus ES350 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.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a fault code P0505 stored. Our technicians tell us that this fault can be caused by a failed electronic throttle body assembly which will require replacement.

Lexus ES350 RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or in some cases replace the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that can result in improper brake fluid pressure control during events that activate the anti-lock brake, traction control or stability control systems. This could lead to loss of vehicle control. Dealers will inspect the brake actuator and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The pre-collision system may activate while driving due to the radar equipped with the vehicle recognizing steel plates or roadway joints as an object that should be avoided. Dealers will temporarily disable the system as a precaution at this time, and will notify owners of affected vehicles a second time when a permanent repair procedure is available. Repairs will be made free of charge.
