Lexus RX350 Problems
The air conditioning light may flash or an AC error message may be displayed. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a fault with the AC amplifier, as revised part is available to correct this concern.
The supplemental restraints system (SRS) warning light may illuminate with code B0111 and/or B0116. Our technicians tell us Lexus has several service bulletins regarding the SRS system. It is not uncommon to replace one or more airbags to correct these fault codes.
Various user interface issues regarding GPS, radio system, and heater controls, along with bluetooth operation have been addressed with a software upgrade. Our technicians recommend that if you have issues with these systems, checking for the latest software should be the first step in diagnoses.

The brake system contains an actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure to the brake at each wheel. An electrical component inside the actuator may experience an increased electrical resistance resulting in the illumination of various warning lights, including those for the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Antilock Brake System (ABS), and Traction Control system. As a result, these systems may not function as expected, reducing directional control assistance and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software for the Skid Control module to correct this concern.
The gas pedal can become stuck in the wide open position when trapped under an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat. A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speed and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will modify or replace the accelerator and replace any Lexus driver's floor mat not specified for the vehicle.
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.

My RX350 is a wonderful vehicle, I have 86,000 miles on it and it is just like new! Smooth, quiet, powerful, comfortable in every way. I love it!
This car is everything an SUV should be.
I just picked up a 2007 RX350 with app. 70k miles. After going to my local mechanic turned out the struts and rack and pinion was leaking. I went back to CarMax where I purchased it, and they replaced everything. (was actually surprised). This car is very much a luxury car, not, a sports car. It is well made, smooth riding, has a beautiful interior, and gives me confidence with driving. ...
