"ABS actuator" car was makes a continuous buzzing noise and then a click when in park, or when turned off after driving. Reported to dealer, who could not find anything wrong when reported in 2016/2017. 2018, was told that I need a ABS actuator after all lights on my dash appeared on the screen. The lights include, ABS, check ABS, slippery road, and a couple of hazard lights. When driving the vehicle at sporadic times leading up to the lights appearing on screen, when I press down on the breaks, it takes a longer than normal response to break, unless I press all the way to the floor it finally responds. This happened while I was not aware of a problem with the ABS actuator system that is a part of the breaking system with Lexus / Toyota cars. I spoke to dealer hendrix Lexus North of Kansas City who found that the issue was the ABS actuator and that it would cost approximately $3,000. The noise I had heard on the car continues and the car is basically a hazard to drive. Looking at many other Lexus forums, this is a known issue. I looked for recalls and found nothing on it. I called my dealership that services the vehicle and asked if there was a recall on this item. I was told no. They informed me that Lexus does have a warranty of this, however I am out of warranty. This is a high safety part, so I called Lexus. I spoke to case manager miles @ 800-255-3987. Miles insists that I am out of warranty for the " warranty enhancement" that ended in 2017 of December, and 10 years after operation of vehicle. I have no record of receiving a letter in the mail. The previous rep says that the letter can be overlooked because it looks more like junk mail. This is a problem and this problem is on the streets and this should have been a recall, not a warranty enhancement. Please look into this. The warranty enhancement I found is attached. Why is this not a safety recall?

2007 Lexus Gs450H with hybrid electronics located next to the transmission. Customer states that this vehicle needs to have further study done on because of the hybrid electronics being next to the transmission. The consumer stated he experienced a variety of neurological symptoms that prohibit him from driving the vehicle for no more than 20 minutes or so at a time and further stating that possibly something in the design might be the cause of the tingling/numbness he experienced. The consumer used a digital gauss meter, which indicate high levels of electro-magnetic field radiation in proximity to the driver, emanating from the motor and/or generator.
