Hey guys,
please see the video on I recorded the conversation because a Lexus rep was changing his opinion on my IS250 having sudden acceleration after he talked to the GM.

please let me know if you know of anyone or you have had sudden acceleration.

what do you think really happened after you see the video?
I know what I think.

Have you checked the IACV? I had a friend that had a Mazda MVP that when it malfunctioned, it was all he could do to keep from running over people in front of him!
if youre stepping on the gas lightly from a stop, the drive by wire system will sometimes accelerate faster and slower...kind of a dumb system to me. Id rather have the old throttle anyday.
I am sorry to hear about what happened with your Lexus. Alarming. I can't say that I have encountered the same problem; but if I do, I will let you know.
