Toyota fire

We got it fixed:-) took it to the local Toyota dealer, asked about recalls and they fixed it immediately. They never informed us about the recalls because we bought it second hand. It is a Lexus GS. Thank you for all the help. I was worried because I don't know anything about cars. I'm a stay at home Mom of two beautiful children.

In the back of your owners manual should be a postcard that you can send to Lexus to update their list of owners. You will then receive notices of any future recalls.

Ever wonder about a few anomalies?

(1) The original post was a hidden ISP
(2) Title of the post was Toyota Fire.
(3) The poster claimed it was aToyota.
(4) Then the poster changed to a Lexus.
(5) Root jumped on it and milked it for what it was worth.

The only reason you're glad is because it gives you one more place to diss Toyota.

Sure AA. You own domestic autos....let the nightmares begin. Detroit is bankrupt...the little 4 (ford, gm, chexy and dodge) is not far behind! The news is trying to help a lost cause...."The volt sold 2 units this year", or Govt Motors is catching Toyota" HA HA HA HA Thats Funny!!!!The domestics are so far behind foreign auto makers they will NEVER catchup.......No matter what the news reports. Most poeple are on to the domestic auto lies....look around AA, the domestic repair shops are overflowing.....Its the domestic way Fix or Repair Daily!!!!

I am nothing more than an irrelevant old fart with an overblown sense of my own importance. My mud isn't all that good. None of it sticks to the wall. But I keep on slinging it anyway. Too funny.

Posted by Root typically using someone else's name. It's something Root does quite often. When Root cannot come up with an intelligent response, he goes to this tactic. Sometimes Root fake s another name and posts cheap graffiti too. Hypocrite and bigot, not to overlook he is dishonest and sneaky.

I work with guys that talk about all the PROBLEMS they are having with the little 4 products..........go stand on that chair! Rust is on the surface, POS is a domestic product! Wait, news flash.."The volt sold 2 units this year".......the news out of detroit is also standing on a chair.......RIP Derot!!!!!!!!!!

I havent heard anybody say how the Toyota Tundra plant in San Antonio is doing which I knew there for a while suppliers down there were cutting back there at the Supplier park around the Toyota Tundra Assembley Plant and I couldnt believe how small the Toyota plant was.
