Lexus is Toyota’s luxury division. It was established in 1989 and today is sold in over seventy countries. Headquartered at Nagoya, Japan, it has become the nation’s best-selling line of premium cars. This success has led to operational centers being established in places as far away as Belgium and the United States. Lexus was founded during the same period as Acura (the luxury division of Honda) and Infiniti (the luxury division of Nissan) and all three are considered fierce rivals. Lexus is sold in multiple forms, including sedan, SUV, coupe and convertible.
About Lexus IS
The Lexus IS executive car was first introduced in 1999. It was initially sold under the name Altezza, which in Italian translates into “highness.” It is considered an entry level luxury vehicle which ranks just beneath the Lexus ES. While the 1st generation was powered by an inline 6 engine, the second generation housed a V6, and a V8 high performance engine was included in sedan variants. The third generation was introduced in 2013 and houses a V6 engine that is turbocharged and can generate 300 horsepower. Some IS models carry an IS designation, which means Intelligent Sport. The newest model, which is slated for release in 2021, will feature a bigger body frame with head and tail lamps that are restyled, an enhanced dashboard, spindle grille and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto availability. The driver assistance will also be updated, along with a suspension that has been modified to have a more durable structure.
Common Lexus IS A/C Problems
Owners of the Lexus IS have reported air conditioning issues on several occasions. For example, one contact noted that the heating and A/C unit emitted aluminum trihydrate from the vents. This resulted in the driver having to get surgery to prevent their nose from bleeding. Although the car was taken to a mechanic, they had a difficult time resolving the issue, and the owner ultimately filed a toxicity complaint. The failure occurred in a model that was brand new as it had little more than 15,000 miles.
