By RX 330 Owner
I just received my "Special Service Campaign" letter in the mail for the Lexus NX Brake Hold issue. For those that are not aware or not familiar with the issue, I figured I'd make a video to explain it...

I have an '04 RX330 that seems to have something in common with 75% of the RX 330s on the road today. The passenger side mirror is discolored with an amber fluid.
Yes I know what it is. Somewhere the seal was broken and the fluid which is used to defrost the mirror is either leaking or has been compromised. The local dealer would like to charge me $585 for a new piece of glass. Thank you... no thank you.
My question is, why has Lexus not recognized this as a systemic problem with this vehicle. Seriously 3 out of 4 RX330s you drive by have this problem with the passenger side mirror. How many vehicle need to have this problem before a recall is issued or considered?
I called Lexus and was advised that they have no advisory or memos of this as a problem. I hope that call "was recorded for quality assurance purposes."
How many folks have this problem? Speak up...
Have you had any success with getting Lexus or the dealer to fix this problem at a cost less than highway robbery?
Finally took my 2006 400h to the dealership for the recall of the Intelligent Power Module (IPM).
Since then, I've noticed my gas mileage seems to have gone from about 22-23 miles per gallon to 18-19 miles per gallon.
When I dropped it off at Lexus I had joked with the service person "since this controls the hybrid system, maybe my fuel economy will improve." Little did I know it might affect it the other way!!
Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know anything about this?
