LEXUS RX300 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 04, 2010.LEXUS RX300 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i experienced sudden unintended acceleration in my 2002 lexus, rx300 on 4 aug, 2010. i was in a parking lot making a left turn into the parking area when the vehicle revved full throttle and surged forward. i applied the brakes fully and when the vehicle did not fully stop i put the vehicle in neutral while still applying the brakes and stopped the vehicle. it was still idling full throttle. i shut it off and let it sit a few minutes and started it again. it went to full throttle and would not throttle down. i then went under the hood and tried to jiggle the accelerator linkage but to no avail. i called the local toyota service department and they told me to get the vehicle there. i had it towed to the service center. they would not do any work on it or even look at it because it was a lexus and they had been instructed not to do anything with unintended acceleration problems on any type of vehicle that was not a toyota even though lexus is manufactured by toyota. i had to get it to a lexus dealer in tucson, az (~80 miles away) for diagnosis. the lexus dealer service center diagnosed the problem as a bent throttle cable. some how a cover had come loose and the cable was exposed from its sheath and bent. i am sure the lexus of tucson service manager, mr. paul minor could explain it exactly but that is my interpretation of what he explained to me. i asked him how this could have happened and he said he did not know. the repair was accomplished for ~$365.00 parts and labor. i will have the car back on friday 20 aug, 2010. i will have the old/bad parts on hand. i feel this is a problem in design that lexus should take responsibility to reimburse me and to issue a safety release and recall. there should be a fail safe if the throttle cable should bend. in my case the bent cable caused a full throttle condition and sudden unintended acceleration. i was fortunate that i was aware of what to do in that situation and that a pedestrian or another vehicle. *tr.Mileage was 110000 miles.

LEXUS RX300 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 20, 2011.LEXUS RX300 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i'm writing to make you aware of a serious safety issue with my vehicle. it started awhile ago, i heard a whining noise & hesitation,had lexus check it out. they said & documented in my profile it was my tire treads. i got the best goodyear tires for that vehicle at the time fortera's. noise rating i believe is 8 out of 10 (10 being quietest). i let it go & had many more oil changes since then & no mention of any fluids needing to be changed. my car has always been dealer serviced wherever i lived. past 4yrs been @ thompson lexus,50 swamp road,doylestown, pa 18902. vin:[xxx]. i change my oil religiously every 8wks or so (my oil is exceptionally clean like a new engine) nothing was ever said about my fluids. none of my paperwork shows recommendations of any fluids nor were there any verbal recommendations about fluid changes.they did recommend a timing belt which i did but they also stated that i should have my water pump done as well even though nothing is/was wrong with it. so, i did what they said. but things got worse. usually when i am at a stop light/sign &/or making a left turn from a stopped position & im pulling out into intersection, the rpms tend to go up but my vehicle doesn't accelerate/respond with the pressing of the gas pedal. with this ongoing intermittent acceleration response, im scared but i need the car to get family around. i had another oil change & i told them to change transmission fluid. they advised me the whining was the transmission & lexus dealership did not recommend that the trans oil to be changed & it is a waste of my $100. i got it verbally & in writing on my service receipt. i believe the issue at hand (based on research) is the transmission & directly related to workmanship (poor design) & also the lack of knowledge, of technicians, to check fluids & recommend changing certain fluids at certain times. information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr.Mileage was 14200 miles.

LEXUS RX300 2002 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2013.LEXUS RX300 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with WHEELS . while installing winter tires we noticed the inner bead on the rims separating. the chrome is delaminating to the point where one tire will no longer hold air, other rims are also delaminating but at this point they still hold air. the delamination occurs on the inner bead so it is not visible until the tire is removed. a tire shop told us the chrome rim is next to the brake rotor and the heat causes the chrome to separate, he would not be responsible for reinstalling the wheel since the tire bead coud separate while it is being driven and a sudden loss of air could equal a blowout. the tires are michellin and still in good shape, we installed winter tires on steel rims but cannot put the chrome rims back on. we were told by tire shops that looked at the rims that that seems ro be a common problem with these rims. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 120000 miles.

Lexus Rx300 2002 Fuel/propulsion System Review #10661338

LEXUS RX300 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 27, 2014.LEXUS RX300 2002, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . while driving with client friends to the ritz carlton in rancho mirage for thanksgiving dinner, the car suddenly stalled. the engine was running but when the gas was stepped on there was no response. we managed to pull to the side of the road at which time we heard an explosion and the car was engulfed in flames. we all immediately jumped out of the car fearing that the gas tank would explode. we called 911 and the fire department arrived in time to extinguish the flames before the gas tank could explode. the windshield blew out...the tires exploded and the car is a total loss. the car has been towed to the police impound lot and because of the holiday we have not been able to reach lexus. it seems apparent to us that this is a gas leak issue as the under-carriage of the car was on fire. considering that lexus has recalled 423,000 cars for a gas leak problem (ours was not on the recall list) it seems obvious that this make and model should also be recalled before someone dies in a fire. this was an extremely frightening and traumatic event and we all feel very fortunate to have survived it with no injuries....except shattered nerves..Vehicle was on fire. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 140478 miles.
