New member with interesting project. 2007 GS 450h with shortened wheel base married to '63 Corvette Sting Ray body panels. Had horrific news today that there is a major issue with transmission.reliability. A number of US cars were recalled and transmission replaced. Does this effect local cars? Project half completed. Should I anticipate disaster?

Hi Bazzle,

Car was running and passed standard service check at local Lexus dealer about 3 years ago. Batteries removed as per service manual.

Reconnecting all the components at the back of the car will be a future adventure I'm looking forward too.

Query concerns how common the transmission replacement issue is. Can get the parts from Japan if necessary, or from a local wrecker.

I'm just anticipating the worst case.

the CVT is will last as long as you look after it

Looking after means doing proper flush service etc

most cars with trans problems are those which havent had the proper service carried out
