    Lexus Is 300 Problems

    Lexus cars dont usually get problems, especially with the engine as they are very reliable cars if they are maintained and taken care of fairly well. I have a 2007 lexus es350 so i gotta wait and find out how reliable that car will be for me in the future.

    Both of my Lexus have over 100K miles. make sure the timing belt and water pump have been changed. The tension bearing for the timing belt will go bad. This may cause the timing belt to fail. Other than that. I replaced the tie rod ends and struts.
