I have a Lexus GX 460. My back windshield exploded spontaneously, causing extensive damage. It literally shattered into many small pieces, exploding mostly outward. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, it is dangerous and extremely concerning. Both myself and my dogs could have been injured and are shaken up by this event.
Can the driver's seat bottom be replaced with the seat bottom from the passenger side ? I'm interested in replacing the driver's side front seat bottom, cushion and leather. After 17 years, mine is very worn. There are passenger side seats available from the recyclers, but I'm trying to determine if any parts can be used on the driver's side. Thanks!
My mom is drives a 2013 LS460. She's a young 79 and pretty healthy. The other day she was pulling out of a parallel parking spot and rear-ended the car in front of her. There was a fair amount of damage indicating a pretty decent impact.
She is not 100% sure what happened as she was pretty shaken (mentally) by the incident. But she said something about either the car not stopping and/or surging forward. My initial thought was she had tried to step on the brake and hit the wrong pedal, but she SWEARS that was not the case.
I've done some research online and seen that there have been issues with this brand and hesitation on acceleration, etc. I'm curious if this incident may be tied to that or any other known lexus issues.
Any and all input on this will be appreciated.
I just bought an '03 GX 470. We get it home and realize that the driver side rear seat release handle is broken. I was able to get the seat folded down with a pair of pliers, but the lock will not release it to tuck up against the rear of the driver seat.
Obviously I will need to replace the handle, but that is not the problem. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? It seems as if one of the latches might be releasing and not the other. Any guidance would be appreciated.
