 Description of the problemThis is an ongoing problem with the lexus rx models caused by moisture and condensation forming inside the headlight there has been a lexus tsb regarding this however dealers apparently are free to decide if they rectified it or not. The computer module in the headlight is damaged by the condensation leading to a repair costing almost $3,000 the part alone being $1,900. Mine ultimately failed at about 54800 miles though it was reported to dealer as a condensation when the dealer chose to do nothing about.
