LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2000.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . CONTACT PERSON: KEVIN EZRATTY SERVICE MANGER, BOB BAKER LEXUS EL CAJON,CA 92020 (619) 440 5398 CAR OVERHEATS AND STALLS WHEN TOWING A 2500 LB R/V TRAILER RX300 SPECS 3500LB. WHEN TOWING IN MOUNTAIN TERRAIN WITH AMBIENT TEMPERATURE AROUND 100 DEGREES AND GOING UP HILL, THE CAR TEMP INDICATOR WILL APPROACH THE RED ZONE AND WILL LOSE ALL POWER AND STALL. THERE IS NO WARNING OR TIME TO PULL OFF THE ROAD, TRAFFIC MOSTLY TRUCKS MAKES IT VERY SCARY AND DANGEROUS. THE TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED AND THE CAR DRIVEN 1000 MILES AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN, WITH NO PLACE TO PULL OFF. I RETURNED THE CAR TO DEALER, THEY HAVE NO IDEA IF THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A MECHANICAL OR ELECTRICAL PROBLEM, THER IS NO HISTORY OF ANY LEXUS RX300 WITH THIS TYPE OF FAILURE. THEIR SUGGESTIONS ARE DON'T DRIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS, DON'T DRIVE IN THE DESERT, DON'T USE THE AIR CONDITIONER, DON'T TOW THE R/V TRAILER, DON'T DRIVE WITH ANY WIND. THEY ALSO REQUESTED THAT THEY BE ALLOWED TO TAKE MY PERSONAL PROPERTY, THE R/V TRAILER AND TOW IT AROUND THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERT AND SEE IF THEY CAN MAKE IT FAIL AGAIN. I ASKED IF ANYONE IN THE FACILITY HAD EVER PULLED A TRAILER, THE ANSWER WAS NO ONE, SO I DECLINED. (I HAVE $55,000 INVESTED) I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF TOWING THIS TRAILER , NOW THEY TELL ME THAT JUST BECAUSE THE CAR IS CERTIFIED TO TOW 3500 LBS DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT CAN. AT THIS TIME WE ARE AT A STAND STILL, THEY CAN'T REPAIR THE CAR AND I TRAVEL A LOT AND DON'T FEEL SAFE DRIVING IT. WITHOUT THE TRAILER IT SEEMS TO BE FINE, IT IS EQUIPPED WITH THE TRAILER TOWING PACKAGE. THE TRANSMISSION OIL TEMP INDICATOR DOES NOT LIGHT UP, SO I THINK THE ENGINE IS BECOMING HOT AND SHUTTING THE CAR DOWN, SEE PAGE 208 OWNERS MANUAL. YOUR HELP AND SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on Sept 23, 2000.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with TIRES . I THOUGHT THAT I HAD PREVIOUSLY FILLED OUT A QUESTIONNAIRE WITH NHTSA, SO THIS MAY BE A DUPLICATE, BUT WE WERE UNABLE TO LOCATE IT SO I THOUGHT TO FILE A SECOND ONE. THIS VEHICLE WAS INVOLVED IN A MINOR FENDER BENDER IN WHICH A PLYMOUTH VOYAGER HIT THE REAR LEFT OF THE VEHICLE WHILE TRAVELLING APPROXIMATELY 10MPH. MY WIFE (SOPHIA ROSLIN), WHO WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE, AND THE OTHER DRIVER, EXCHANGED INSURANCE INFORMATION BUT DID NOT INTEND TO FILE A CLAIM AS THE DAMAGE SEEMED MINOR. SOPHIA THEN PARKED THE VEHICLE AND ATTENDED A BIRTHDAY PARTY THAT MY 3 YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WAS ATTENDING. AFTER THE PARTY, APPROXIMATELY 90 MINUTES LATER, SOPHIA AGAIN BEGAN DRIVING THE CAR AND HEADED HOME. AFTER DRIVING APPROXIMATELY ONE MILE, AND WITHOUT FEELING ANY PULLING, DRAGGING OR TUGGING, SOPHIA WAS ALERTED BY GOOD SAMARITAN THAT THE REAR LEFT TIRE WAS ON FIRE (UNFORTUNATELY, I DON'T RECALL THE MAKE OR MANUFACTURERE OF THE TIRE, BUT IT WAS THE STANDARD TIRES THAT COME WITH THE LEXUS RX300). SOPHIA ESCAPED THE CAR ALONG WITH MY DAUGHTER. THE FIRE WOUND UP ENGULFING THE VEHICLE, MELTING THE CAR SEAT AND TOTALLING THE CAR. *AK.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

LEXUS IS RATED TOPS SO WHY WOULD MY TRANSMISSION GO OUT AT ONLY 68,000 MILES? I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO HAVE IT REPAIRED IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE I WAS MOVING TO FLORIDA IN TWO WEEKS AND DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME OR WHEELS TO TAKE MY COMPLAINT TO THE DEALER.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on Aug 16, 2006.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . WHEN STARTING MY 1999 LEXUS RX 300 AFTER WORK, I NOTICED A "WHINING" SOUND COMING FROM THE ENGINE. MY COMMUTE HOME IS ABOUT 15 MILES. I NOTICED WHEN DRIVING THAT IT WOULD "JERK" WHEN TRYING TO CHANGE GEARS. IT MADE ME THINK BACK TO A COUPLE OF MONTHS BACK WHEN I WAS IN A PARKING SPACE AND PUT THE CAR INTO REVERSE AND STARTED TO EASE OUT OF THE PARKING SPACE WHEN IT FELT LIKE SOMEONE HAS HIT ME OR I HAD HIT SOMETHING. I GOT OUT, BUT NOTHING? I THEN GOT BACK INTO THE CAR AND STARTED TO LEAVE AND THE CAR WOULD GO INTO REVERSE, BUT WHEN APPLYING THE GAS THE CAR WOULD NOT MOVE. I TRIED AGAIN AND THE CAR FINALLY "CAUGHT" INTO GEAR AND MADE A TERRIBLE SOUND. I NOTICED IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE DAY OF FAILURE THAT THE CAR WOULD HAVE A HARD TIME CHANGING INTO SECOND GEAR. IT WOULD "WIND OUT" BEFORE CATCHING. NOW, THE DAY OF THE FAILURE, I WAS LEAVING WORK AND I NOTICED A "WHINING" SOUND IN THE ENGINE AND IN MY COMMUTE HOME IT GOT WORSE. THE CAR STARTED JUMPING BACK AND FORTH AND THE RPMS WERE RANDOMLY JUMPING. EVEN WHILE COASTING DOWN A HILL THE RMPS WOULD JUMP AND ACCELERATE AND SLOW DOWN THE CAR MAKING IT JERK. AT TIMES IT WOULD ACT AS IF IT WAS IN NEUTRAL AND I WAS TRAVELING AT 45 MILES PER HOUR. WHEN THIS WOULD HAPPEN, THE RMPS WOULDN'T MOVE? MY CAR HAS APPROXIMATELY 78K MILES ON IT. I IMMEDIATELY TOLD MY HUSBAND, WE CALLED LEXUS AND TOOK IT STRAIGHT TO THEM. I HAD TO GET A RENTAL CAR. I GOT A CALL THE NEXT DAY TO TELL ME THAT THE PUMP FAILED AND THE TRANSMISSION FLUID WAS BLACK AND THE TRANSMISSION WAS GONE. IT'S GOING TO COST $4,600.00 TO REPAIR. THERE ARE MANY OTHER CASES EXACTLY LIKE MINE. THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL! *NM.Mileage was 79103 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT6HF10U3X0.

I OWN A 99 RX300 AWD. PURCHASED THE CAR FROM A DEALERSHIP CORPORATION THAT ALSO OWNED LEXUS OF SERRAMONTE IN SF BAY AREA AT 68K MILES. THE VEHICLE APPARENTLY HAD ALL SERVICES DONE ON TIME AS MY DEALER NOTED AND WAS SERVICED AT THEIR FACILITY SINCE THE VEHICLE LEFT THEIR DEALER LOT. SO THE CAR WAS LOCALLY OWNED AND REPAIRED. AT 74K MY TRANSMISSION STARTED TO ACT UP WHERE I FOUND THE CAR TO BE BELLOW 20% OF ITS TEMPERATURE THE CAR WILL EITHER NOT SHIFT INTO 4TH OR OVER DRIVE. MY DEALER TOLD ME TO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION FLUID BUT THAT ONLY WORSENED THE PROBLEM WHERE IF THE ENGINE IS BELLOW THAT TEMPERATURE IT WILL START JUMPING WHEN GOING FROM 1ST TO 2ND, AND TAKES A WHILE TO SHIFT BETWEEN GEARS. THE DEALER TELLS ME THAT THIS IS NORMAL OPERATION OF ANY CAR AT 90K MILES. NOW MY BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT MY CAR STALLS IF IT┬┐┐S AT IT NORMAL TEMPERATURE AFTER STARTING IT UP, IT WILL DIE, UNLESS I KEEP THE PEDAL DEPRESSED FOR FUEL TO FLOW INTO THE ENGINE AFTER THE STARTER DISABLES.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 11, 2007.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . HAVE A LEXUS RX 300 1999 MODEL WITH 4X4 DRIVE. THE CAR RAN OK FOR 80,000 MILES OR SO. OUR CURRENT MILEAGE IS AROUND 81,000. THE CAR WAS BEING DRIVEN ON AN EXPRESSWAY WHEN IT GOT REALLY SLOW (15 MPH) AND THEN STOPPED ON ITS OWN. I BARELY AVOIDED A MAJOR ACCIDENT. ANYWAYS, I TOOK THE CAR TO A REPAIR SHOP AND THEY TELL ME THE TRANSMISSION NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND WILL COST ME 4800 TO DO SO. PLEASE HELP. APPARENTLY THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM FOR RX 300 1999-2000 MODELS. THE GOOGLE SEARCH ONLINE BRINGS UP TONS OF BLOGS MENTIONING THE SAME PROBLEM. HERE IS A COPY OF ONE OF THE BLOGS POSTED ON HTTP://WWW.CARSURVEY.ORG/VIEWMORECOMMENTS_REVIEW_54694_2.HTML MANY LEXUS CARS ARE EQUIPPED WITH A DEFECTIVE TRANSMISSION THAT FAILS PREMATURELY. LEXUS ADMITS THIS, BUT WILL NOT BACK UP THEIR PRODUCT WHEN THE EVENT OCCURS OUT OF WARRANTY (7/70) - UNLESS THE VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED AND SERVICED EXCLUSIVELY AT A LEXUS DEALERSHIP. SINCE THE MANUFACTURE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REPLACEMENT COSTS (NOT THE DEALER), THE PRACTICE OF REPLACING ONLY DEALER-SERVICED CARS APPEARS ARROGANT AND DISCRIMINATORY. IF REPAIR RECORDS CAN BE PROVIDED SHOWING THAT TRANSMISSION SERVICE WAS DONE ACCORDING TO THE DEALER SERVICE INTERVALS - AND BY A CERTIFIED GARAGE - THEN THE MANUFACTURER SHOULD BACK UP THEIR PRODUCT REGARDLESS. IN OUR PARTICULAR CASE, WE HAVE A BABIED 1999 RX300 THAT STARTED MAKING ODD NOISES WHILE IN THE WARRANTY PERIOD, AND THEN FAILED COMPLETELY (POST-WARRANTY). THE DEALER HAS DECLINED OUR REQUEST FOR A REDESIGNED REPLACEMENT TRANSMISSION FREE OF CHARGE. WE HAVE SUBMITTED A CLAIM THROUGH THE LEXUS CUSTOMERCARE NUMBER (1.800.448.1505), BUT UNDERSTAND THAT THE MANUFACTURER SIMPLY FOLLOWS THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE DEALER IN QUESTION. IN OTHER WORDS, WE'RE AT THE MERCY OF THE DEALER AND THEIR DISCRIMINATORY POLICY. WE'RE STILL AWAITING THE MANUFACTURER JUDGMENT, BUT HOLD OUT VERY LITTLE HOPE. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 81000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT6HF10U7X0.

OUR 1999 RX300 HAS ONLY 70,000 MILES AND THE TRANSMISSION FAILED WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING ON A VERY BUSY STREET. THE FAILURE WAS VERY DANGEROUS BECAUSE SHE WAS IN THE MIDST OF TRAFFIC WHEN SHE COULD NOT MANEUVER HER CAR SAFELY TO THE CURB. SHE WAS ABLE AFTER SITTING IN TRAFFIC FOR AWHILE TO RESTART THE CAR AND MOVE THE CAR OVER TO THE CURB. SHE CALLED FOR A TOW TRUCK WHICH TOWED THE CAR TO OUR MECHANIC'S SHOP. THE COST FOR A REBUILT TRANSMISSION WILL COST US $5000. AFTER SEARCH THE INTERNET, WE HAVE FOUND THAT MANY MANY !999 RX300 OWNERS HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND WITH MANY DANGEROUS SITUATIONS OF BEING WITHOUT POWER TO MOVE SAFELY OFF FREEWAYS AND HIGHWAYS. T THERE OUGHT TO BE A MANUFACTURER'S RECALL ON THIS CAR AND A CHARGE TO TOYOTA AMERICA TO DEVELOP A FIX FOR THE PROBLEM BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM WITH THE TRANSMISSION.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 17, 2007.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . AUTOMOBILE WAS A PERFECTLY FUNCTIONING 1999 CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED LEXUS RX300 UNDER A BUMPER TO BUMPER 'NEW CAR WARRANTY'. AUTO WAS CONSISTENTLY SERVICED BY LEXUS OF PALM BEACH. THE AUTOMOBILE WAS CONSUMED BY 20 FT. FLAMES IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES WHILE PARKED IN OUR DRIVEWAY SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT. THE GARAGE WAS ABOUT 6 FT. AWAY AND CAUGHT FIRE. FORTUNATELY A NEIGHBORS DOG AWOKE THEM AND THE FIREMEN ARRIVED TO PUT THE FINAL CAR FLAMES OUT AND STOP THE FIRE ON THE GARAGE. WE SLEPT THROUGH THE ENTIRE INCIDENT AND WERE AWOKEN BY A FIREMAN. THE EXACT CAUSE IS STILL A MYSTERY. THE ARSON INVESTIGATOR RULED OUT ARSON, THE RESPONDING FIRE CHIEF RULED OUT WEATHER RELATED CAUSES. BOTH THE ARSON AND THE INSURANCE INVESTIGATORS DETERMINED THE IGNITION POINT AT THE REAR LEFT TIRE. BOTH CONCLUDED THAT POSSIBLY AN OVER HEATED BRAKE WAS TO BLAME. I AND THE LEGAL DEPARTMENT AT TOYOTA MOTOR SALES AGREE THAT THIS EXPLANATION IS IMPOSSIBLE SINCE THE CAR HAD NOT BEEN DRIVEN IN TWO DAYS AND IT RAINED HEAVILY DURING THOSE TWO DAYS. I HAVE ENCOURAGED THEM TO DO THEIR OWN INVESTIGATION. TO DATE NO RESPONSE. THREE MONTHS HAVE ELAPSED AND LEXUS HAS SHOWN NO INTEREST IN THIS MATTER. I AM ESPECIALLY CONCERNED FOR THE SAFETY OF SMALL CHILDREN WHEN FLAMES CAN ERUPT SO UNEXPECTEDLY AND CONSUME A CAR SO QUICKLY. ON OUR STREET OF 34 HOUSES THERE ARE AT LEAST 10 OTHER LEXUS OWNERS. ONE HAS CONFIDED THAT HE PARKS HIS CAR FURTHER FROM THE GARAGE NOW AS A RESULT OF WHAT HE WITNESSED. HE ALSO IS THE FATHER OF AN 18 MONTH OLD SON WHO WOULD BE BUCKLED INTO A CAR SEAT JUST ABOVE THAT IGNITION POINT. *JB.Vehicle was on fire. Mileage was 85000 miles.

OWN A 1999 LEXUS RX 300. ENGINE TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN SLUGGISH SINCE I PURCHASED THE CAR IN 2001. SINCE WE HAVE OWNED THE CAR WE COMPLAINED THE DEALER THAT WHEN YOU START TO RUN THE CAR IN THE MORNING IT WILL TAKE A FEW MINUTES BEFORE THE CAR WILL SHIFT FROM 2ND TO 3RD GEAR. THE DEALER KEPT TELLING US THAT WAS NORMAL FOR THE MODEL CAR. THE TRANSMISSION GOT CONTINUALLY MORE SLUGGISH OVER THE YEARS MEANING THAT THERE WAS HESITATION OR JERKY NESS WHEN YOU WOULD PULL YOUR FOOT OFF OF THE GAS. LAST WEEK I STARTED TO HEAR A GRINDING NOISE WHEN THE CAR WAS SHIFTING FROM 2ND TO 3RD GEAR. I JUST GOT BACK FROM THE REPAIR SHOP WHERE I WAS TOLD THAT THE TRANSMISSION WHICH JUST TURNED 130,000 MILES WAS SHOT AND THAT THE ONLY FIX WAS TO PURCHASE A REBUILT ONE FROM LEXUS AT A COST OF $4,500 TO $5,000. THEY TOLD ME THEY WERE AWARE THAT THIS WAS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH 1999 - 2001 RX 300 TRANSMISSIONS BUT THAT THERE WAS NEVER A RECALL OR SERVICE BULLETIN ISSUED. IF THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM THEN I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 130000 miles.

I HAVE EXPERIENCED SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH MY 1999 LEXUS RX300. I HAVE NOTICE VIA THE INTERNET THAT THESE ARE WIDE SPREAD PROBLEMS BUT NO RECALLS HAVE BEEN OCCURRING. THESE ARE THE INCIDENCES THAT I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH: * DEBRIS CAN GET INTO THE IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE THAT ALLOWS AIR INTO THE ENGINE CAUSING THE ENGINE TO HAVE A LOW IDLE SPEED, OR STALL WHEN IT IS COLD. (THIS OCCURRED IN THE PAST, PERHAPS 2004. LEXUS EVENTUALLY REPLACED MY ENGINE IN 2005.) * SLUDGE CAN BUILD UP IN THE ENGINE. I ROUTINELY HAVE TO HAVE THE SLUDGE CLEANED OUT TO AVOID ENGINE PROBLEMS. * THE ┐CHECK ENGINE┐ LIGHT COMES ON BECAUSE THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR SENDS INCORRECT INFORMATION TO THE ENGINE┐S COMPUTER. THIS CAN CAUSE A LOSS OF POWER ON ACCELERATION. (THIS STARTED OCCURRING ON DECEMBER 11, 2008.) * THE ┐CHECK ENGINE┐ LIGHT COMES ON BECAUSE A COMPONENT OF THE OXYGEN SENSOR STOPS WORKING, AND THE CAR IS UNABLE TO DETERMINE THE PROPER RATIO OF AIR TO FUEL FOR THE ENGINE. (THIS HAS OCCURRED IN THE PAST, PERHAPS 2005. WE HAD TO PAY FOR NEW AIR FLOW SENSORS.) * LIGHT BULBS FREQUENTLY BURN OUT IN THE TAILLIGHTS. * THE FRONT SUSPENSION MAKES VERY LOUD NOISES WHEN GOING OVER BUMPS OR ROUGH ROADS. THE SUPPORT BUSHING FOR THE SUSPENSION NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. (THIS BEGAN HAPPENING IN DECEMBER 2007. LEXUS TOLD US WE NEED NEW STRUTS.) * A THROBBING WIND NOISE FROM THE MOONROOF. ONE CANNOT HAVE THE MOONROOF OPEN AT THE SAME TIME AS THE WINDOWS OR ONES EAR DRUMS EXPERIENCE SEVERE PAIN. (THIS HAS EXISTED FROM PURCHASE.) I BELIEVE THE 1999 LEXUS RX 300 MIGHT VERY WELL BE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE LEMON LAWS, YET WE'RE NOT SEEING PROBLEMS BEING ADDRESSED WITH RECALLS. *TR .Lexus Rx300 1999 problem was reported in WEST DES MOINES, IA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 50 mph.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 10, 2009.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . I HAVE READ AS MANY OF THE OWNERS OF 1999 LEXUS RX300 SUV , I AM NOT SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT I AM NOW A PROUD OWNER OF A BRAND NEW TRANSMISSION THAT FAILED ON MY WIFE WHILE RETURNING FROM GREENVILLE TO COLUMBIA SC. THE TRANSMISSION WAS INDICATING PROBLEMS BY SHIFTING SLOW AS MANY OTHER COMPLAINTS THAT HAVE BEEN FILED . WHEN THESE TRANSMISSIONS START TO FAIL YOU EXPERIENCE SLOW SHIFTING WHEN THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING , EVEN IF YOU LET THE CAR WARM UP FIRST BEFORE MOVING INTO ANY GEAR DRIVE OR REVERSE. WHEN YOU TRY TO BACK UP IN REVERSE THE TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT INTO GEAR, THEN JUMPS INTO GEAR HARD. I HAVE BEEN IN THE MECHANICAL FIELD FOR 35 YEARS WORKING FOR BRIDGESTONE/FIRESTONE IAS A MANAGING PARTNER OF RETAIL LOCATIONS AND KNOW THIS IS THE SIGNS OF TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN SERVICED ONLY BY LEXUS ONLY. ALSO ARE SEVERE OIL SLUDGING PROBLEMS, HAVE SERVICED HUNDREDS OF THESE MODELS AND EVERY HORROR STORY IS THE SAME . OIL SLUDGING CAUSES SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE RESTRICTING OIL FLOW THROUGH OUT THE ENGINE. WHEN IS OUR RIGHTS AS CONSUMERS GOING TO BE UPHELD BY OUR GOVERNMENT .

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 10, 2009.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . I HAVE READ AS MANY OF THE OWNERS OF 1999 LEXUS RX300 SUV , I AM NOT SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT I AM NOW A PROUD OWNER OF A BRAND NEW TRANSMISSION THAT FAILED ON MY WIFE WHILE RETURNING FROM GREENVILLE TO COLUMBIA SC. THE TRANSMISSION WAS INDICATING PROBLEMS BY SHIFTING SLOW AS MANY OTHER COMPLAINTS THAT HAVE BEEN FILED . WHEN THESE TRANSMISSIONS START TO FAIL YOU EXPERIENCE SLOW SHIFTING WHEN THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING , EVEN IF YOU LET THE CAR WARM UP FIRST BEFORE MOVING INTO ANY GEAR DRIVE OR REVERSE. WHEN YOU TRY TO BACK UP IN REVERSE THE TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT INTO GEAR, THEN JUMPS INTO GEAR HARD. I HAVE BEEN IN THE MECHANICAL FIELD FOR 35 YEARS WORKING FOR BRIDGESTONE/FIRESTONE IAS A MANAGING PARTNER OF RETAIL LOCATIONS AND KNOW THIS IS THE SIGNS OF TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN SERVICED ONLY BY LEXUS ONLY. ALSO ARE SEVERE OIL SLUDGING PROBLEMS, HAVE SERVICED HUNDREDS OF THESE MODELS AND EVERY HORROR STORY IS THE SAME . OIL SLUDGING CAUSES SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE RESTRICTING OIL FLOW THROUGH OUT THE ENGINE. WHEN IS OUR RIGHTS AS CONSUMERS GOING TO BE UPHELD BY OUR GOVERNMENT .

TRANSMISSION ON MY 1999 LEXUS RX300 STARTED SLIPPING. WE TOOK IT INTO A LEXUS DEALER AND WERE TOLD TO NOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL THE TRANSMISSION FAILED, THEN BRING IT IN. I ASKED IF WE SHOULD HAVE IT SERVICED OR SOME MAINTENANCE TO PREVENT A FAILURE AND THEY ADVISED THAT IT WAS NOT WORTH IT. IT FAILED, THEN THE DEALER WANTS $4,200 TO FIX IT. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT THIS YEAR AND MODEL LEXUS HAS TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS NATIONWIDE AND SUGGESTS IT IS A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AS WELL AS GENERAL MECHANICAL FAILURE. *TR.Mileage was 130000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT6GF10UXX0. Lexus Rx300 1999 problem was reported in BIRMINGHAM, AL.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on Mar 15, 2009.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . I AM TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO AT THIS ROCK AND HARD PLACE WITH MY 1999 LEXUS RX THAT I PURCHASED NEW. I LOVE THIS CAR, HOWEVER SINCE THE WARRANTY ENDED, I'VE HAD A SERIES OF PROBLEMS. SENSORS MOSTLY AND A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT THAT ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE LINKED TO CO2 ISSUES. IT HAS BEEN ON AND OFF FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS NOW. FINALLY, I HAD A CHECKUP DONE WHEN MY CAR STARTED TO INFREQUENTLY SHUDDER WHEN IT DOWNSHIFTS FROM 3RD TO 2ND GEAR OR DELAY REVERSE WHEN PUT IN GEAR. NOTHING SHOWED UP ENGINE/TRANSMISSION WISE...... THOUGHT IT WAS AN ALIGNMENT PROBLEM WITH THE TIRES SO HAD IT REALIGNED. PROBLEM STILL REMAINS AND APPEARS TO BE WORSENING AND I'M GETTING CONCERNED ABOUT DRIVING IT. THE CAR HAS 86,000 MILES ON IT AND I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE LEXUS DEALERSHIP DO THE SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE WHEN APPROPRIATE. THIS IS A VERY POOR QUALITY ISSUE FOR A COMPANY WHO CLAIMS TO HAVE QUALITY AS THEIR MAIN GOAL. I GUESS THEY JUST DON'T CLAIM TO HAVE "GOOD OR GREAT" QUALITY AS THEIR MOTTO. I WILL BE SHOUTING THIS LOUD AND CLEAR TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS. *TR.Lexus Rx300 1999 problem was reported in GREENWOOD, IN. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

LEXUS RX300 1999 Power Train Automatic Transmission Report #10284687

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on Sept 10, 2009.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . I HAD SOME DIAGNOSTICS RUN ON THE TRANSMISSION, AND THE VERDICT WAS THAT THE PLANETARY GEAR WOULD LIKELY NEED TO BE REPLACED IF THE TRANSMISSION WAS REBUILT. APPARENTLY THE ORIGINAL PLANETARY GEAR HAD FOUR GEARS MOUNTED IN AN ALUMINUM CARRIER... WHO KNOWS, HEAT, WEAR WHATEVER THE CARRIER FAILS AND ALLOWS THE GEARS TO TILT, AND THEN YOUR TRANNY IS TOAST.. THE NEW REPLACEMENT PLANETARY GEARS ARE MOUNTED IN A STEEL CARRIER, WITH 6 GEARS INSTEAD OF THE ORIGINAL 4....VERY INTERESTING.... AND MUCH STRONGER I SPOKE WITH THE SERVICE MANAGER AT MY LOCAL LEXUS DEALER (WHO HIMSELF HAD AN RX300 AND HAD TO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION, IRONICALLY), AND HE WENT TO LEXUS CORPORATE AND GOT THEM TO PAY FOR HALF OF THE REPLACEMENT COST. THIS BROUGHT THE ESTIMATED COST TO ABOUT $2200 INCLUDING TAX. THE ESTIMATED COSTS ON THE OVERHAUL WERE BETWEEN $1500-$2000. THE LEXUS SERVICE MANAGER HAD SAID THAT WHEN HIS OWN TRANSMISSION WENT OUT, HE'D GRILLED THE LEXUS ENGINEERS ON THE REMANUFACTURED PART. HE SAID THAT THE ENGINEERS ADMITTED THAT THERE WERE SOME "IMPROVEMENTS" MADE IN THAT TRANSMISSION POST-2001 AND THAT THEY'D RATHER HAVE A REMANUFACTURED 2001+ TRANNY THAN A BRAND NEW 2000 TRANSMISSION. THEY NEVER ADMITTED TO AN ISSUE, ONLY THAT THE 2001+ PART WAS DEFINITELY BETTER. I CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE PRETTY DARN GOOD AT KNOWING WHEN SOMEONE ISN'T TELLING THE FULL TRUTH, AND THIS GUY WAS, SO I BELIEVE HIM. *TR.Mileage was 170000 miles.

WE OWNED A 1999 LEXUS RX 300 SUV. WE RECENTLY ENCOUNTERED A COMPLETE TRANSMISSION FAILURE ON 11/26/2009 (THANKSGIVING DAY) AT ~134000 MILES WHILE DRIVING TO ATTEND A THANKSGIVING DINNER. THE CAR WAS WELL-MAINTAINED AND WELL-KEPT SINCE THE PURCHASE. THE ENTIRE MAINTENANCE HISTORY CAN BE VERIFIED & CONFIRMED BY LEXUS OF PORTLAND IN OREGON. WE WERE VERY SURPRISED THAT THE TRANSMISSION WENT OUT SO SOON FOR A LEXUS. THIS IS VERY DISAPPOINTING. NOT ONLY THE SITUATION WAS DANGEROUS AND UNSAFE FOR MY WIFE & I (WE WERE ON A HIGHWAY) BUT WE LATER FOUND OUT THAT LEXUS IS CHARGING US $4400 TO REPLACE A REBUILT TRANSMISSION. AS I INVESTIGATE FURTHER, SOUNDS LIKE LEXUS/TOYOTA IS WELL-AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND NOT OFFERING ANY COMPENSATION TO HELP WITH THE HEAVY BURDEN REPLACEMENT COST. WE WOULD LIKE TO FILE THIS COMPLAINT AS A WAY TO GET HIGHER AUTHORITY TO HELP THE AFFECTED LEXUS OWNER. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN REVIEW & INVESTIGATE INTO THE MATTER WITH LEXUS/TOYOTA FOR US. *TR .Mileage was 134000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT6HF10U1X0.

IN EACH CASE THE RPM CYCLED FROM 3,000 TO 8,000 AND THEN SPONTANEOUSLY RETURNED TO NORMAL AFTER ABOUT A MINUTE. IN NEUTRAL GEAR. I WAS UNABLE TO OVERCOME ACCELERATION BY BRAKING. THE GAS PETAL FELL TO FLOOR EACH TIME BUT WAS NOT STUCK AND RETURNED TO NORMAL AFTER THE EPISODE WAS OVER. THESE 3 EVENTS OCCURRED IN A SINGLE WEEK. I FELT THERE WAS SOME MALFUNCTION OF THE CRUISE CONTROL--WHICH I NEVER USE. I HAD THE CRUISE CONTROL DISCONNECTED AT A LOCAL GARAGE AND NEVER HAD ANOTHER PROBLEM. WHEN I TOLD THE LEXUS DEALER ABOUT THIS AT THE NEXT ROUTINE SERVICE VISIT, THEY SAID THEY HAD NEVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THIS AND DID NOT SUGGEST FURTHER ACTION. I NEVER RECONNECTED THE CRUISE CONTROL. I REPORT THIS NOW BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT CONCERNS.

(I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF FLOOR PAD, I BOUGHT IT IN 1999 AND INSTALLED IT THEN, IT IS ONE OF THE THICK ONES THAT IS GOOD A HOLDING SNOW AND WATER.) I FIGURED OUT THAT THE FLOOR PAD WAS THE PROBLEM WHILE THE ENGINE WAS REVVING TO 90 MPH AND THE BRAKES WOULD NOT STOP THE CAR. LEXUS COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG BUT SAID NOTHING TO ME ABOUT THIS BEING A PROBLEM IN TOYOTA PRODUCTS. NO CRASH AND NO INJURY SINCE I FIGURED IT OUT; THE FLOOR MAT FELT THICK TO MY FOOT SO I YANKED IT OUT FROM UNDER THE PEDALS. JUST REALLY SCARY.... SPECIFICALLY, I CAME OUT OF A SIDE STREET ON TO A MAIN ROAD AND NEEDED TO GET AHEAD OF TRAFFIC SO I STOMPED IN THE ACCELERATOR PRETTY HARD- NOT MY TYPICAL DRIVING STYLE- AND THEN THE ACCELERATOR STUCK, THE CAR REVVING AND GOING TO 90- 100 MPH. I STOOD ON THE BRAKES BUT IT WOULD NOT STOP. I TRIED TO THROW IT INTO PARK ( BUT THANKFULLY THE CAR WOULDN'T LET ME- I WAS THINKING ABOUT TRYING TO USE THE PARKING BRAKE TO STOP IT, BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE A HAND BRAKE SO THAT'S WHY I WAS SO STUPID AND TRIED TO THROW IT IN PARK. THE NOISE FROM THAT WAS SO HORRIFYING I DID NOT PUT IT IN NEUTRAL). THEN I FELT THE LUMPY FLOOR MAT AND YANKED IT OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE PEDALS. IT WAS LATE AT NIGHT AND THERE WERE NO CARS ON THE ROAD SO I HAD A MILE OF CLEAR ROAD TO WORK THIS OUT. CAR HAD ABOUT 275,000 MILES ON IT.

YESTERDAY MORNING, WHILE TRAVELING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, IT WOULD SUDDENLY LOSE POWER AND THE TACHOMETER WOULD SHOW THE RPMS RAISING SUDDENLY, AS IF IT WAS IN NEUTRAL. IT WOULD DO THIS FOR SEVERAL SECONDS OR MORE BEFORE DECIDING TO APPLY POWER TO THE WHEELS AGAIN WHEN IT WANTED TO. THIS HAS CAUSED ME TO HAVE TO CREEP ALONG AT TIMES, UNSURE OF WHAT IT MIGHT DO NEXT. NOT BEING IN CONTROL OF WHEN (OR WHERE FOR THAT MATTER) MY VEHICLE WILL GO IS A SAFETY CONCERN. WILL IT POOP OUT ON ME WHEN I'M NEEDING TO PASS SOMEBODY OR TRYING TO TURN LEFT ACROSS ONCOMING TRAFFIC? WILL IT LUNGE ME FORWARD ON ITS OWN AT AN UNPREDICTABLE MOMENT? YESTERDAY AFTERNOON MY "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT CAME ON, MY MECHANIC TOLD ME THE CODE RANG UP AS "SHIFT SOLENOID." THIS CAR HAS ALWAYS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF ACCORDING TO MANUAL SPECS. MY LAST TRANNY FLUID CHANGE WAS ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO. THE CAR ALSO APPEARS TO HAVE A REAR ENGINE LEAK AT THE GASKET BETWEEN THE ENGINE AND TRANNY. THIS "QUALITY" LEXUS CAR HAS LESS THAN 114K MILES ON IT! MY SISTER JUST HAD HER REAR ENGINE SEAL REPLACED AND HER TRANSMISSION REBUILT FOR $4400 AND HERS HAS JUST 125K MILES ON IT. WHAT A JOKE! I WILL NEVER BY A TOYOTA AGAIN. I'VE ALWAYS GOTTEN BETTER SAFETY AND LONGEVITY OUT OF FORDS. POO ON YOU LEXUS. I AM SCHEDULING A TIME TO HAVE MY MECHANIC REPAIR THIS; STILL WAITING ON A QUOTE THOUGH. I EXPECT A MIN OF $400, BUT ONCE HE OPENS THE TRANNY UP HE MAY ADVISE ME TO REBUILD THE THING (ANOTHER $4-$5K). LEXUS EITHER BELIEVES IN SAFETY, IN WHICH CASE THEY SHOULD FESS UP TO POOR ENGINEERING AND FIX THEIR MISTAKE, OR THEY DON'T! DEATHS/INJURIES:? = NOT YET. *TR.Mileage was 113440 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JT6HF10U6X0. Lexus Rx300 1999 problem was reported in MOLALLA, OR. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 07, 2010.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . 1999 LEXUS RX 300 91K MILES, OWNED SINCE NEW, ALL SERVICE AT DEALER AS REQUIRED, TRANSMISSION JUST WENT OUT. FOUND A WEBSITE WITH MANY COMPLAINTS, SAME THING, LOW MILES. OBVIOUSLY A DEALER DEFECT, THIS IS NOT RIGHT! I BOUGHT A LEXUS SO IT WOULD BE RELIABLE. MY CHEVY SILVERADO 1993 IS GOING STRONGER THAN THIS CAR. SINCE I BOUGHT THE CAR, IT DID NOT UPSHIFT RIGHT. LEXUS ALWAYS SAID THIS WAS NOT A PROBLEM. I NOTICE OTHER PEOPLE COMPLAINING OF THE SAME SYMPTOM. THIS FAILURE WAS SUDDEN OTHER THAN THAT. JUST IN A PARKING LOT & SUDDENLY IT WOULD NOT SHIFT GOING FORWARD. 1 1/2 YEARS AGO MY MECHANIC HAPPENED TO CHECK MY TRANNY FLUID, IT WAS BLACK. HE DRAINED & REPLACED IT. I WAS LIVID, I HAD PAID FOR ALL DEALER MAINTENANCE. THAT WAS AT ROUGHLY 80K MILES. SUPPOSEDLY THIS WAS DONE AT 60K MILES BY LEXUS (I'M NOT SURE IF THEY DID THE WORK NOW, OR NOT) THERE WERE METAL SHAVINGS IN THE FLUID. SOMETHING APPEARS TO BE WRONG WITH THIS DESIGN, AND LOOKS LIKE THEY DID A BANDAID IN LATER MODELS. I AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING GETTING A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST THEM, I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY $5K FOR A NEW TRANNY NOW, THAT IS WHY I BOUGHT A LEXUS. MY CELICA WAS STILL GOING STRONG AT 175K MILES WHEN I SOLD IT.

I BOUGHT A '99 LEXUS RX300 FOR MY WIFE AT 62K MILES. I DID ALL OF THE SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE INCLUDING THE EXPENSIVE STUFF (LIKE THE TIMING BELT CHANGE). UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, THE ENGINE REAR MAIN SEAL WAS LEAKING AT THE TIME THAT I PURCHASED IT. I FIGURED IT WAS SIMPLE AND "ITS A LEXUS, RIGHT?". I FOUND OUT THAT IT WOULD COST $1700 TO FIX AND THAT IT WAS COMMON ON THIS MODEL. I IGNORED THE LEAK BECAUSE MY WIFE LOVED THE TRUCK OTHERWISE. UNRELATED TO THE OIL LEAK, AT 183,000 MILES I'M DRIVING ON A FAMILY VACATION WITH THE CAR ON CRUISE CONTROL AND THE TRANSMISSION SUDDENLY STARTS TO SLIP. I MANAGE TO MAKE IT MY DESTINATION, BUT AFTER RESEARCH AND GETTING DIAGNOSTICS FROM THE DEALERSHIP AND TRANS SHOPS, I FOUND IT WOULD COST $3000-$4000 TO FIX. I DECIDED TO FIX IT AND PAID $3700 FOR IT. NO SOONER THAN I TOOK OFF DRIVING, THE CAR STARTED SMOKING HORRIBLY AND WAS NOW SLIPPING IN 1,2, AND 3RD GEAR. THESE TRANSMISSIONS ARE A NIGHTMARE TO REPAIR, AND I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE THAT BUYS ONE TO COUNT YOUR LOSSES WHEN IT FAILS AND TRASH THE CAR. *TR.Mileage was 180000 miles.

AFTER FURTHER INVESTIGATION I HAVE FOUND THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE RX300 MODEL YEARS 1999-2001 DESCRIBING THE EXACT SAME DRIVE TRAIN FAILURE. IT IS APPARENT THAT LEXUS IS AWARE OF THIS ISSUE AND HAS FAILED TO ISSUE ANY TYPE OF WARNING TO ITS CONSUMERS OF IMPENDING TRANSAXLE FAILURE DUE TO AN INFERIOR SHIFTING APPARATUS. AS STATED EARLIER SERVICE WAS PERFORMED ON MY RX300 AND ANY MENTION OF IMPENDING PROBLEMS WERE ABSENT. AS A CONSUMER I FEEL THAT IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF LEXUS TO WARN ITS CUSTOMERS OF ANY PROBLEMS WHICH MAY ARISE DUE TO INADEQUATE EQUIPMENT. BELOW ARE LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES WHICH LIST COMPLAINTS OF THE EXACT TRANSAXLE FAILURE. A RECALL FOR REPAIRS SHOULD BE ISSUED AS THIS IS A SERIOUS VEHICLE FAILURE.

WHICH FROM WHAT I HAVE RESEARCHED ARE ATTRIBUTED TO BAD ENGINEERING. I AM CONSTANTLY HAVING TO REPAIR A VEHICLE WHICH IS SUPPOSEDLY KNOWN FOR QUALITY. THE PROBLEMS THAT I'VE MENTIONED ARE JUST THE MAJOR REPAIRS. I HAVE OTHER MINOR ISSUES SUCH AS REAR POWER WINDOW MUST REMAIN LOCKED OR IT OPENS ON IT'S OWN, DASHBOARD LIGHTS DO NOT ILLUMINATE,AND POWER ROOF GETS STUCK OPEN INTERMITTENTLY. *TR.Lexus Rx300 1999 problem was reported in HAVERHILL, MA.

LEXUS RX300 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 25, 2012.LEXUS RX300 1999, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . ON APRIL 25, 2012, MY WIFE AND I WERE DRIVING TO MY BROTHERĺS HOME, A DISTANCE OF 50 MILES. ABOUT TWO MILES FROM OUR DESTINATION, WE STOPPED AT AN INTERSECTION. WHEN THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN, I ACCELERATED AND THE CAR WENT FORWARD ABOUT TEN FEET AND LURCHED TO A STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION. WE WERE THROWN FORWARD, AND THE DRIVER BEHIND US HAD TO JAM HIS BRAKES. WE WERE ABLE TO LEAVE THE INTERSECTION ONLY BY PUTTING THE CAR IN LOW GEAR AND SLOWLY MOVING THROUGH THE TRAFFIC TO THE FAR RIGHT LANE AND INTO A BANK PARKING LOT. WE HAD THE CAR TOWED TO A NEARBY MECHANIC. THE FOLLOWING DAY I RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE MECHANIC WHO QUOTED $3,766 FOR TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT. I AUTHORIZED THE WORK TO BE DONE. ON APRIL 27, I TOLD A FRIEND WHO WAS VISITING OUR AREA FROM CANADA OF THE INCIDENT. THAT DAY, HE SPOKE WITH AN ACQUAINTANCE WHO IS A SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE FOR A CANADIAN LEXUS DEALER. HE SAID THAT FAILURE AT AROUND 100,000 MILES IS A WELL KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THE 1999 LEXUS RX300 AND THAT LEXUS HAD BEEN WORKING WITH CUSTOMERS ON THIS ISSUE .I WENT TO THE INTERNET TO SEE WHAT I COULD LEARN. THERE WAS NO RECALL, BUT THERE WERE SITES REFERENCING THE PERVASIVENESS OF TRANSMISSION FAILURE IN THE RX300. FROM WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED , WE BELIEVE THAT TRANSMISSION FAILURE ON THE 1999 LEXUS RX300 OCCURS FREQUENTLY AT AROUND 100,000 MILES AND IS CAUSED BY A DESIGN FLAW IN THAT MODEL YEAR. THAT BEING THE CASE, IT SEEMS TO US THAT LEXUS OUGHT TO HAVE TAKEN PREEMPTIVE ACTION SO THAT OWNERS SUCH AS MY WIFE AND I WOULD NOT HAVE TO SUFFER A NEAR COLLISION, NOT TO MENTION UNNECESSARY COSTS AND INCONVENIENCE. LEXUS OFFERED A TOKEN SERVICE CREDIT BUT WAS UNWILLING TO ADMIT TO ANY INHERENT PROBLEM IN THE RX300 TRANSMISSIONS AND OFFERED NO COMMENT REGARDING OUR SUGGESTION THAT THE OWNERS SHOULD BE FOREWARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF TRANSMISSION FAILURE AT AROUND 100,000 MILES. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 106857 miles.
