Poor design, not backed by Lexus
At 70400 miles the planetary assembly came apart! Transmission is gone with a cost of $4000 to repair. No assistance from Lexus. Ridiculous to have this kind of expense on a luxury car. According to the repair shop, it is a definite defect. Reported to the National Highway Transportation Safety Agency, and would suggest others with similar problems do likewise.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
