IS350 Forever

I believe it...I also own a junky BMW 335i and let me tell you...it rates nothing close to my IS350. My 335i is still inthe shop after 14 days in a row; this does not include the gigantic amount of time spent in the shop already. Simply put...the Lexus is a superior car with the most reliability in my opinion. If you want a car that claims no turbo lag, get a BMW so you can experience a fuel delivery problem. If you want a car that gives you the proper vendor specs without issue, get the IS350. Loving it way under 6 seconds EVERY time. "Limp mode" get the 335i.
DONE!!!!!!!!!!

ALERT: If your check engine light is on in your Toyota, check for oil consumption and blue smoke, too. Often, one of the first signs of the development of engine oil sludge is the check engine light coming on. Many emissions control components are replaced prior to or right after sludge builds up.

Several other Toyota owners are speaking up about the current Toyota engine oil sludge or gel problem. Take a look at http://www.toyotaoilgel.com . Check out http://www.uc2.blogspot.com to see what owner has faced at his local Toyota dealership and more. Read the complaints on the online petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/TMC2003/petitio... .

Take a look at YouTube.com under “Toyota Engine Oil Sludge” or “Toyota Oil Gel”
to see how the problem originated. Then, note the almost 3,000 signatories on the online petition “Toyota Owners Unite for Resolution: Engine Oil Sludge.” It seems that Toyota owners are complaining they have been left out of the “Customer Support Program for Engine Oil Gelation.” Still others say that Toyota has kept information about it hidden from them.

Toyota owners should file owner complaints at the NHTSA and the Center for Auto Safety. They should send Toyota a certified letter to formally notify it of the problem. Then, they should ask for full repair cost coverage under the provisions of the CSP.

Toyota owners can follow “toyotasludge” at Twitter.com for updates.

Back in 2004, two key consumer sites went down at the same time. Toyota owners were very actively discussing Toyota engine oil sludge and Toyota’s follow through, or lack thereof, on the CSP. It was as if someone wanted those sites to be eradicated. The moderator at one of the sites admitted multiple hacking until the site went down permanently.

At any rate, none of the very legitimate and informative postings from those two sites is accessible now. Convenient, huh?
