LEXUS GS300 2006 car safety problem was reported on Aug 15, 2005.LEXUS GS300 2006, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS . THE HID LIGHTING SYSTEM ON THE VEHICLE IS AIMED CONSIDERABLY LOW PROVIDING FOR EXTREMELY POOR FRONT ILLUMINATION. THE DEALER CLAIMS THAT THE LIGHTS ARE ADJUSTED AS HIGH AS LEXUS ALLOWS. THE ONLY WAY TO ADEQUATELY SEE PEDESTRIANS, ETC. AT NIGHT IS TO DRIVE WITH THE HIGH BEAMS ACTIVATED WHICH IS EXTREMELY DISTRACTING TO OTHER DRIVERS.

A FEW MONTHS AFTER I BOUGHT MY 2006 LEXUS GS300 IN JAN., 2006, I EXPERIENCED THE SUDDEN ACCELERATION OF MY CAR. I WAS PASSING A CAR AND WHEN I TOOK MY FOOT OFF OF THE GAS PEDAL IT CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE. I TRIED THE BRAKE BUT IT SEEMED FROZEN..IT DIDN'T MOVE AT ALL. I QUICKLY THREW THE CAR INTO NEUTRAL, AND AS I WAS ABOUT TO HIT THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME, I SHIFTED INTO PARK...IT WAS THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE CAR TO STOP. THEN I TURNED THE CAR OFF. THE FIRST TIME I ATTEMPTED TO START THE CAR BACK UP, IT RACED. ON THE SECOND ATTEMPT IT SEEMED TO START UP NORMALLY, AND I DROVE IT TO WORK. I TOOK THE CAR IN TO THE DEALER THE NEXT DAY.

IT GOT UP TO 80 MILES AN HOUR, WHEN SHE DID AS I DID, PUT IT IN NEUTRAL, PULL OVER ON THE SHOULDER, AND THROW IT INTO PARK. SHE WAS FRANTIC, CALLING THE CAR A " DEATHTRAP " . I CALLED THE DEALER FOR A TOW AND WHEN I DESCRIBED WHAT HAPPENED, HE SAID IT WAS PROBABLY THE MATS. .NO WAY. EVEN AFTER WE MOVED THE MAT COMPLETELY AWAY AND RESTARTED THE CAR..THE RPM'S RACED UP. EVEN THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER SAID THE CAR RACED AND " JUMPED ' WHEN HE PULLED IT ONTO THE FLATBED . THE DEALER CALLED THE NEXT DAY AND SAID THE CAR IS FINE. I TOLD HIM I WANT THEM TO KEEP THE CAR UNTIL THEY FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM AND FIX IT. I HAD A LOANER FOR A COUPLE DAYS AND THEN THE DEMANDED IT BACK.

INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) I AM AN OWNER OF A 2006 LEXUS 300 GS [XXX]. I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU MY NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE. ON JANUARY 17TH I WAS DRIVING MY CAR ON VACATION IN PENSACOLA FL. WHEN I TRIED TO TURN THE STEERING WHEEL I FELT THE STEERING WHEEL LOCK FOR A BRIEF MOMENT THREE TIMES WHILE I WAS TURNING.

THE NEXT DAY, 1/18/10 I DROVE BACK FROM PENSACOLA STRAIGHT TO NALLEY LEXUS IN ROSWELL, GA WHERE I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE. NALLEY LEXUS KEPT THE CAR UNTIL 1/21/10 AND THEY WERE UNABLE TO REPRODUCE THE STEERING PROBLEM. I EXPLAINED TO MY SERVICE ADVISOR, [XXX] THAT I AM VERY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE SAFETY OF THIS VEHICLE AS I DON'T KNOW IF / WHEN THE PROBLEM WILL REOCCUR.

LEXUS GS300 2006 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2009.LEXUS GS300 2006, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . I DRIVE A 2006 LEXUS GS300. LAST FALL,AS I BACKED OUT OF MY PARKING SPACE - IN A BUILDING - MY CAR "TOOK OFF" AND HIT A CEMENT WALL. ( AT FIRST, I THOUGHT I HIT THE GAS PEDAL IN ERROR HOWEVER, AFTER WHAT HAPPENED NEXT, I KNEW THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. FORTUNATELY, THERE WERE NO PEDESTRIANS IN THE PARKING LOT. ) I PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE AND IT "TOOK OFF" AGAIN. LUCKILY, I HIT A CEMENT PARKING BUMPER THAT STOPPED ME. ALL THIS TOOK PLACE IN MAYBE 15 SECONDS OR SO. NOT REALIZING THERE WAS ANYTHING TERRIBLY WRONG WITH MY CAR, I STEERED AROUND THE BUMPER. THE CAR CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE AND I WAS HEADED FOR ANOTHER CEMENT WALL. I WAS APPLYING MY BRAKES WITH ALL MY EFFORT AND FINALLY I CAME TO A STOP A FEW FEET FROM THE WALL. SHAKING, I DROVE MY CAR DIRECTLY TO THE LEXUS DEALER AND TOLD HIM WHAT HAPPENED. (AT THAT TIME I USED THE TERM "TAKE OFF" AS I HADN'T HEARD ABOUT ALL THE ACCELERATION PROBLEMS) HE RAN MY CAR THROUGH A COMPUTER CHECK AND ASSURED ME THAT HE COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG. SEVERAL WEEKS LATER A FRIEND ASKED ME WHAT KIND OF CAR I DROVE AND TOLD ME ABOUT ALL THE PROBLEMS TOYOTA WAS HAVING. I DROVE MY CAR BACK TO THE DEALER AND ASKED HIM TO RECHECK THE CAR. HE DID, AND AGAIN ASSURED ME THAT THERE WERE NO PROBLEMS. WE BOUGHT THIS CAR USED LESS THAN 1 YEAR AGO WITH JUST 12,000 MILES ON IT. IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT IT WAS POSSIBLY TRADED IN BECAUSE IT HAD ACCELERATED WHEN THE LAST OWNER HAD IT. THE DEALER CHECKED AND SAID THERE HAD BEEN NO PREVIOUS ACCELERATION PROBLEMS. ONE LAST BIT OF INFO....I'M NOT REALLY SURE THE EXACT MONTH I EXPERIENCED THE PROBLEMS. AND FINALLY, EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NOT HAD ANY ACCELERATION PROBLEMS SINCE LAST FALL, I AM STILL NERVOUS EVERY TIME I DRIVE MY CAR. PLEASE ADVISE. THANK YOU *TR.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

PURCHASED BRAND-NEW. THE HEADLIGHTS ARE VERY LOW. I TOOK IN THE FIRST WEEK AND THEY SAID ADJUSTED THEM, BUT STILL THE SAME TROUBLES. THEN THE HEADLIGHT COMPLETELY TURNS OFF. I AGAIN TAKE IN IT UNDER WARRANTY AND THEY REPLACE THE LIGHT BULB. STILL THE SAME PROBLEM. I COMPLAINED OVER AND OVER. STILL NOTHING. I STILL DROVE THE CAR SINCE NEW WITH THE FAULTY HEADLIGHTS UNTIL THIS DAY. LAST WEEK ON MONDAY OCT. 3 2011.. I WENT OUT TO GET MILK FOR KIDS AROUND 8PM, I DROVE UP TO THE A LOCAL STORE AND TURNING INTO THE PARKING LOT, MIND YOU MY HEADLIGHTS ONLY LET ME SEE ONLY ABOUT 6 FEET IN FRONT OF THE CAR. I STARTED TO TURN AND ALMOST HIT A KID RIDING HIS BIKE HOME. I SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES AND STEERED TOWARDS THE CURB. I FREAKED OUT!! I ALMOST HIT A 12 YEAR OLD BOY BECAUSE MY HEADLIGHTS!! THESE HEADLIGHTS ARE THE WORST I'VE SEEN ON A CAR! I HAD OVER 15 CARS AND NEVER HAVE I SEEN THIS PROBLEM BEFORE. WHAT IF I HIT THIS KID OR EVEN WORST, KILLED HIM! WHO'S TO BLAME?

LEXUS GS300 2006 car safety problem was reported on June 04, 2008.LEXUS GS300 2006, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . I BOUGHT A BROUGHT NEW LEXUS IN DECEMBER 2005. THE HEADLIGHTS GO OFF INTERMITTENTLY. MOST OF THE TIME, IT IS THE PASSENGER'S SIDE. HOWEVER, THE DRIVER'S SIDE WILL OCCASIONALLY TURN OFF, TOO. I HAVE HAD BOTH OF THEM GO OFF AT NIGHT WHICH WAS VERY SCARY SINCE THE ROAD WE WERE TRAVELING WAS DARK. I HAD TO DRIVE ABOUT A QUARTER OF MILE WITHOUT LIGHTS. WHEN I REACHED A LIGHTED AREA, I FLICKED THE LIGHT SWITCH ON AND OFF AND THE LIGHTS CAME BACK ON. I NOW KNOW WHY I GOT HONKED AT WHEN I WAS TRAVELING AT NIGHT (RARELY DO I TRAVEL AT NIGHT BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM, SINCE I NEVER KNOW WHEN THE LIGHTS WILL GO OFF). BEFORE I KNEW THIS WAS HAPPENING, I TOOK IT TO THE LEXUS DEALERSHIP AND A SWITCH WAS REPLACED BECAUSE AT THAT TIME THE HEADLIGHTS WOULD NOT TURN OFF AUTOMATICALLY. I MENTIONED TO THE SERVICE MANAGER THAT THE DRIVER'S SIDE LIGHT WAS OUT SOMETIME AGO AND THAT MY HUSBAND, THINKING IT WAS JUST THE LAMP, WAS GOING TO REPLACE IT. BUT WHEN WE WENT TO BUY THE LAMP, BOTH LIGHTS WERE ON. WE DISMISSED AS A FLUKE. THE SERVICE MANAGER TOLD US THAT WE NEEDED TO BRING IT BACK WHEN IT DID IT AGAIN SO IT COULD BE CHECKED. WELL, IT IS HARD TO DO SO BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN THE LIGHTS WILL GO OFF. IF YOU TURN THE LIGHTS ON AND OFF, THE LIGHTS WILL COME BACK ON. SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DETERMINE WHEN THAT WILL HAPPEN. IT IS SCARY. IF WE HAVE TO TRAVEL AT NIGHT, WE MAKE SURE BOTH HEADLIGHTS ARE ON. HOWEVER, THAT DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT ONE OF THE HEADLIGHTS WILL NOT GO OFF AFTERWARDS, BECAUSE IT HAS HAPPENED. AT TIMES ONE OF THEM WILL BE OUT BY THE TIME WE GET HOME. TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC AND HE SAYS, "HARD TO REPAIR WHAT YOU CANNOT DETERMINE WHAT IT IS". *TR.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTHBH96S265. Lexus Gs300 2006 problem was reported in CORPUS CHRISTI, TX. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. Vehicle had 6 CYLINDERS. FUEL TYPE: GAS.

LEXUS GS300 2006 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2011.LEXUS GS300 2006, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . FOR THE PAST EIGHT MONTHS I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY HEADLIGHTS DURING EVENING HOURS. I ALWAYS TURN THEM ON AT NIGHT AND NOTICED THAT MY DRIVER HEADLIGHT WOULD GO OUT AFTER ABOUT FIVE TO TEN MINUTES OF DRIVING AND SHORTLY AFTER THE PASSENGER LIGHT WOULD GO OUT. AT FIRST I THOUGHT I NEEDED TO REPLACE THE BULB, BUT I SOMEHOW DISCOVERED A GLITCH IN THAT IF I MANUALLY TURN MY LIGHTS OFF AND THEN TURN THEM BACK ON THEY BOTH TURN ON. HOWEVER, THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE VERY CYCLICAL AND HAPPENS MORE OFTEN AND WITH A SHORTER GAP IN TIME OF TURNING OFF. KNOWING THAT MY BULBS ARE NOT BURNT OUT IN THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO TURN BACK ON LEADS ME TO BELIEVE SOMETHING IS WRONG ELECTRICALLY AND SHORTING. MY MAIN CONCERN IS THAT I WORRY THAT BOTH LIGHTS ARE OFF AND OTHER DRIVER'S CANNOT SEE ME. THE OTHER WORRY IS THAT I AM CONSTANTLY FLASHING OTHER DRIVERS BY ALWAYS TURNING MY LIGHTS OFF AND ON. AFTER REVIEWING THIS SITE, IT WAS NICE TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME IT IS UNSETTLING TO SEE THAT SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. *TR.Mileage was 75000 miles.

DRIVER SIDE HEADLIGHT GOES OUT SHORTLY AFTER BEING TURNED ON.!!!.....SOMETIMES IF I TURN THE LIGHTS OFF AND BACK ON, THEY WORK. I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALERSHIP THAT MY BULB NEEDS TO BE REPLACED (COST $280) BUT I THOUGHT IF THE BULB WAS BLOWN IT WOULD NOT COME ON AT ALL. AFTER GOOGLING THE SUBJECT, I FOUND THAT THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHER CONCERNED LEXUS OWNERS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SAME PROBLEM. AT FIRST I THOUGHT I NEEDED TO REPLACE THE BULB. THE BULBS ARE FINE. THIS IS VERY VERY DANGEROUS IN A RURAL AREA WHERE THERE ARE VERY LITTLE STREET LIGHTING. DEALER WON'T DO ANYTHING. THIS ISSUE KEEPS OCCURRING. AFTER CAREFUL REVIEW, IT WAS NICE TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME IT IS UNSETTLING TO SEE THAT SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100000 miles.
