SC 430

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
My new car is emitting a "rotten egg smell" when I accelerate. I am being told by the dealer(sterling mccall Lexus) that there is nothing that they can do. Also that they knew they were having a problem with the 430 engines. This should have been revealed to me prior to my purchasing the vehicle.
