Question about Lexus RX 330

1 Answer

The transmission on my 2005 lexus rx330 has experienced a catastrophic failure at 87,000 miles. Lexus dealer quotes the repair bill at $5,500. The vehicle has never been used to tow and all repairs and maintenance have been performed by the dealer. I want to negotiate relief with the dealer but need background info. What is the history of transmission problems and failures for this make and model? How can I best get Lexus participation for the repair costs?

I don't think history of others matters unless it is to the point of a class action suit.
What matters the most is what the warranty says.
Was a 5 year or 100,000 mile warranty or not?
They could also claim you did not keep the fluid up, so you should have some way of proving it was serviced regularly.
But does not have to be dealership even, although that helps.

Believe it or not, your future purchase potential is actually the most important aspect of all. The dealership really wants to sell you another car in the future. They have a certain warranty allowance from the manufacturer, and they can decide to use it on you if they think it will mean future sales income.

2005 Lexus RX330 HID ballast replacement, passenger side headlight. What is the removal procedure please?


I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?

Thanks,

Rear differential makes rumbling noise


That is not a common problem. I work at a lexus dealership and can attest to that. If you complain loud enough the dealer should "goodwill" warranty that for you especially since you've been a good customer. lexus sells a great car and will allow the dealer to warranty it for you out of warranty at their discretion. your powertrain warranty should be 7yr /70,000
