  • Automatic transmission

Have gone through 4 batteries -- 3 within 3 months. Fletcher jones dealership in las vegas, nv keeps insisting nothing wrong with vehicle (Lexus RX300-2002) + simply replaces the dead battery. Lexus regional service never seems able to reach the dealership. No one has any idea or explanation why batteries keep failing for no apparant reason.
