LexusFans Posted November 3, 2006 Share Posted November 3, 2006 I am currently looking to buy a 04' or 05' LS 430. I am a bit hesitate on the 04' for a couple reasons. 1) 04' compare to 05' according to consumer report there are areas on the 04' is not as reliable. 2) Recall History: 2004: Impeller inside fuel pump may have been improperly molded; alcohol in some fuels could deform the impeller and cause it to contact pump housing, and in worst case, could result in fuel pump failure. 2004: In some cars, if accelerator is operated quickly, small metal piece in automatic transmission may separate and cause parking-lock system to be inoperative when shift lever is in "Park" position. 2004-06 LS: Some air bag inflators were produced with an insufficient amount of the heating agents. In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. Dealers will replace the specific SRS air bag. So, I guess my question is have you experience any issue? Should I worry about the recalls? How are these recall handle? What should I expect? Thanks in advance!
