I also just sold a 2007 IS350 and didn't have any major problems outside these 5 recalls and TSB's. 2 other issues I had were the power tilting mirrors stopped working, and rust showed up on one of the wheels. Both fixed under warranty.
While it was an unreal car and gave me 106k reliable miles, it didn't come without a few issues within the first 3-4 years of ownership.
Looking forward to my 2014 GC, but will get a warranty to protect myself. Chrysler may not make a Lexus, but they seem to make extended warranties very reasonable.
I stand corrected. I do remember them replacing the valve springs at a scheduled routine oil change due to the recall.
No gas pedal adjustment, I didnt have any issues with it, though they did send me a nice notice telling me not to jam my car mats under the gas pedal
I never had the cam start up noise, though others did complain of it on sites like this.
No dash rattle either.
No problems with my fuel pressure sensor either.
I'm not trying to flame Jeep. Im only agreeing with the quality report (or lack of quality/reliability)
