premature rusting

Asked by May 03, 2011 at 04:25 PM about the 2009 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm a 2009 rx 350 owner and I'm experiencing premature rusting on the front of the hood. Dealer attributes it to gravel damage but I know different. Any other RX 350 owner experiencing this curious phenomenon? Thanx

My guess is that more people have this problem then they want to admit to. I just bought a 2009 RX350 and the front and the hood had a plastic coat applied to it. The previous owner did not give much of an explanation, but I guess that he must have had bad experience with his previous Lexus.

Its a common problem with Toyotas, but Toyota will never admit it.
