Transmission problems with Lexus RX?

Asked by BamaGirl20011 Oct 20, 2016 at 08:17 PM about the 2007 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm getting a 2007 Lexus RX350 with 141K miles.  Its been serviced regularly
(about every 20K miles!) at Lexus dealerships and is in great shape.  But I
recently heard that there are transmission issues with Toyota engines, which is
what I'm assuming is in a Lexus.   Any advice?
