When i press on the brake hard and continually there is a noise (thump). My husband has taken the car in where we bought the car 3x? S and was told this is normal on the front brakes. I am not happy with that answer. I just want to know is this normal for the car i bought. Is it safe. The car is beautiful and to drive around and hear a noice when pressing the brake is not acceptable on such a beautiful car. I have an audio of the sound i? M hearing while breaking. And a video of the mechanic at the dealership saying this was acceptable normal. I just bought this car 10-29-2019.
I keep asking the dealer to replace the high pressure fuel pumps and they keep answering that they will call me as soon as they receive the parts. It has been like that for the last 30 days. There is no incident involved but the south florida lexus do not have the replacement pumps available
Takata air bag has not been replaced since purchasing. Constant brakes vibrations feel at steering wheel. Sometimes its almost dangerous to continue driving. Dealers are unable to fix it and have no solution. I have visited newport lexus and lexus of el cajon multi times but they are not fix my brakes. Air bags are not avaialble

There are obstructions in the accelerator pedal area. My husband wears a size 12 shoe. When he presses down on the pedal to accelerate quickly, the right side of his shoe encounters an obstruction. He moves his foot over to the left a little and can get the pedal down but then the tip of his toe gets caught in a bolt or something above the top of the pedal. We have contacted lexus and they are unwilling to do anything. This is a serious safety concern!!!
There is an issue with the ventilated seats on the car. When you turn on the ventilated seating function the bottom of the seat blows cold air, but an upper band (shoulder blade height) on the back of the seat heats up dramatically. Once you engage the function a band of the back of the seat heats up just like a heating element would heat up. It's instant and it gets very hot! I turn it off for fear both comfort and for fear that something will burn.
When using the ventilated seats the upper part of the seat heats up (between my should blades). It appears to happen randomly. Sometimes it doesn't heat up and other times it does. When it does heat up it gets so hot that i have to turn off the ventilated seats. It is not ambient or trapped hot air because i often start my car using the lexus remote to start my car and let it run for 5-8 minutes so my vehicle can cool down (and warm up) before i get in and start driving it.
