 Upon starting the car the car shook and got a vsc and engine check light. called the dealer right away and they said they would have to charge 100 to see what happened. come to find. out after the fact there was a voluntary notice put out by lexus on this issue which they have extended warranties for. this has already happened twice to me while driving and both times lexus will not fix it under warranty claiming it does not happen when they take it in. they will not fix the problem unless it occurs while their testing even though the notification indicating the issue is coming up. they have also claimed it is safe to drive although it does not seem safe to have a car randomly stall at any point of time. my research has shown that this is a common problem for consumers with this car. it is also understood that the fix would require a considerable amount of time to fix by lexus ( they would need to keep the car for a month). the cost associated with this is likely why they are hesitant to fix.
 My 2007 lexus is250 awd has started having complete headlight failures that can be simply corrected by turning the lights off and back on. these failures can happen anytime while driving or at rest. *tr
