  1. Hi to be quite frank, i had to get the financial ombidsman involved and also said i would seek legal advice on the matter as like yourself lexus denied ever having these issues,but now being a proud owner of a lexus isf im really happy now lol
  2. Hi this is only my personal experiance, but i would avoid the 220d... i have had a load of problems when i once owned one, lexus make great cars but the diesel car is crap,here is just a few of the problems i had to deal with.. 1.new turbo 2.new egr valve (replaced 5 times) 3.new cat converter 4.new 5th injecter 5.new common rail 6.new gear linkage 7.new steering rack 8.new brakes (done 4 times) I won't go on anymore as some people do have good lexus diesels on here, but the one i had was utter ******* and would never buy a lexus diesel again the only thing i can reccomend is to get one which has a full dealer service history and is covered by a good comprehensive warranty ( because you will need it at some point) DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET RID OF THE DIESEL VERSION AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE,THESE CARS ARE A ABSOLOUTE NIGHTMARE THE PETROL VERSIONS ARE FAR BETTER AND GIVE JUST AS GOOD FUEL ECONOMY
