Hello folks. Who ever said the TRAC ECU replacement and engine ECU update was a "national" thing? I called up Sewell Lexus in Dallas Texas, and the service man had "no knowledge of such a problem". So, I called up 1-800-25-LEXUS. I asked the guy on the phone if he knew of such a problem for the IS300. He said "no". I then told him that other dealerships around the nation know of such a problem, and how strange it was that he doesn't know about it. He got all defensive and said to me, "well, you know what i would do? I would go to those dealerships and talk to them about it". By this time I was already pissed. There are dealerships around the nation who are aware of this problem. So how could the 1-800-25-Lexus people not know? You know, I got the IS300 because I like the way it looks and after test-driving it at the dealer. Plus, it has the Supra engine (I love supras) However, the TRAC ECU and engine ECU thing is getting on my nerves. Plus, the people at Lexus (both dealers and service reps) are playing games--acting as if they know nothing. This is the last Lexus I'll ever get. Had I known about these problems, I would have tried to get a nice used Supra Turbo.
