Common Defects

If you’ve had to bring your Lexus in for repair two times or more for any of the following concerns, you may have a lemon. Call 1 (833) 4MY – LEMON to speak with a Lexus lemon law attorney and get our team of experienced trial attorneys fighting on your behalf today.

Engine Failure

The engine is the heart of the vehicle. A car can’t drive without a properly working engine. Lexus vehicles are known to have defective timing chain covers that leak oil.

Common symptoms of engine failures include:

  • Engine Control Module (ECM) warning lights on the dash
  • Check engine lights
  • No start, excessive cranking
  • Lack of acceleration
  • Loss of power
  • Stalling (most often when attempting to shift gear)

Transmission Failure

The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car. Transmission defects in Lexus vehicles have been known to cause dangerous unintended accelerations.

Common symptoms of transmission failures include:

  • Whining and clunking
  • Burning smell
  • Lack of response, hesitation,
  • Lunging, or jerking
  • Noisy in neutral
  • Leaking fluid
  • Premature clutch replacements

Electrical Failure

The car’s electrical system is composed of the battery, starter, and alternator and is responsible for things like starting the car, powering the dashboard, and other electricity dependent systems such as power locks, power windows, sound systems, and lighting, among others. Electrical failure can be caused by a loose electrical connection, a blown fuse, or battery failure.

Common symptoms of electrical failure include:

  • Battery problems
  • Engine won’t crank
  • Headlights aren’t working properly
  • Burning plastic smell
  • Fuses keep blowing out

Engine Cooling System Failure

A car’s engine cooling system is responsible for keeping the engine cool while it works to prevent overheating. The system does so by sending a liquid coolant through hoses and passages in the engine. As the coolant flows through these hoses and passages, it picks up and removes heat from the engine. The water pump has the job of keeping the coolant moving through the system, and the radiator re-cools the liquid so it can again be circulated through the passages in the motor. Lexus vehicles are commonly reported to have defective and prematurely failing water pumps.

Common symptoms of engine cooling system failure include:

  • Overheating, especially on city roads or “stop-and-go” traffic
  • Metallic smell coming from the engine compartment
  • Coolant leaks
  • Steam or smoke emanating from the engine compartment

Body and Interior Components

Body and Interior components are everything that makes up the exterior and interior body and shape of the Vehicle, such as the doors, door panels, dashboard, exterior body panels, A and B pillars, roof, and hood, among others.

Lexus vehicles are notorious for what is referred to as “melting” interior. Vehicles with the “melting” defect have dashboards, door panels, and consoles that become extremely sticky in warm weather. The “melting” panels are also known to emit foul burnt plastic odors. Some consumers have even reported large chunks of plastic being dislodging from the dashboard and door panels.

The “melting” dashboard also causes a blinding glare to be reflected from the windshield into the eyes of the driver when the sun shines on the dashboard, making the vehicle dangerous to drive.

Notable Lexus Recalls

Passenger Frontal Airbag May Explode on Many Lexus Models (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 19V741000)

  • In October 2019, Toyota/Lexus recalled nearly 1,000,000 of its vehicles due to defective passenger airbag inflators that are prone to exploding.
  • According to Lexus, a defect in the air bag inflator may cause the inflator to explode without warning. Inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Fuel Pump May Fail (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 20V012000)

  • In January 2020, Lexus recalled over 1,800,000 of its vehicles for a fuel pump failure causing the engine to stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • According to Lexus, the defect may manifest in a loss of engine power or vehicle stalling, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.

Brake Assist Vacuum Pump May Fail (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No.18V211000)

  • In April 2018 Lexus recalled 6,000 of its vehicles for a defective brake assist vacuum pump. The defect caused the vacuum pump to fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • According to Toyota/Lexus the problem is caused by an oil vane within the vacuum pump that is prone to failure. Failure leads to the illumination of a warning light, a warning message, an audible tone, and results in the sudden loss of braking assist. A sudden loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.

About Lexus

At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Lexus. Lexus is the luxury vehicle subsidiary of Japanese automaker Toyota. Toyota/Lexus headquarters is located in Plano, Texas. Automotive analysts estimate that the Lexus division of Toyota accounts for a disproportionate share of the company’s profits. Lexus has historically offered fewer price incentives to its customers than any of its competitors with the goal of keeping profits high.

I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?

Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Lexus often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Lexus’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
