Reply From Lexus Dealership

Recommended Posts

THEY DONT KNOW WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH MY CAR.

THEY HAD 2 MECHANICS LOOK AT IT. AND NO CLUE.

found out the part my mechanic put on is a non lexus part (cheaper...) and my dad is bitching about that (i dont care..as long as it functions correctly).

they recommend replacing the mass air flow sensor and the hose... sensor is gonna be $600+ alone.

someone just shoot me.

cant do anything with it..since im not the full freaking owner (parents).

but trust me, i'd sell him if i could...it'd be like selling a puppy though, make sure he'd go to a good home ;)

stupid damn things that break down..

stupid hurting heart, i love my car so much.

Do yourself a real favor and find a good import mechanic and take it there. The dealership is just hosing you raw. $600 for a MAF sensor? Rediculous. Will your dad only have it serviced at Lexus?

I bet the costs would at least be half at a good import shop.

my dad will take it anywhere for a good price ;)

but he wont spend over $200 i figure......even if i tried to chip in he'd say no.

import mechanic? what's that exactly?

so i got my car back...it's at my parents house :chairshot: :chairshot: (yes there are two there for a reason)

i can't drive it, under the recommendation of my mechanic....it's a safety issue since we don't know what the F is wrong with it..

when my parents get back from their trip Eze is going back to the shop to have cheap used parts put on him to see if it helps..

starting the with cheapist to the most expensive..my mechanic worries that the computer itself might be the issue..

i just want my damn car back..

i hate camrys..i just want my lil lexus back...it was so sad to see my dad drive off in him..*sniffle* poor car, locked in a garage for another week...

*sobs*

i just want my car so bad...just to sit in it and smell him....the smell of coco butter and my surfboard air freshner...

i dont know where you go piggy ...

but there is a dealership in raliegh, i belive near morrisville or cary called Johnson Lexus...how far is that from you?

little problem like that need to be approached slowly... i mean .. not all mechanics are going to figure out right away... they only work there remember that... Y would they care .?

i think with the problems your having... any body who's really good with cars can help...

to be honest .. from my experience,, Gm workers really know that they are doing....

My torque converter went out on my old car.... it took a real long time figureing out that it was the problem... sometimes you just get unlucky

good luck.... be patient... im sure its a small problem, just a !Removed! to figure it out...
