Just got this from my sales rep.

Good Morning! I hate sending this so much!!
We just got some bad news that all GX’s are going to be delayed for up to 30 days for quality control. I’m so sorry and I will keep you updated on everything I hear 😞

Anyone else receiving this notification?

That's interesting. When was your original build time scheduled to start? Ours was to start last week May 15th and scheduled to ship out tomorrow, May 21st.

Our dealer hasn't provided any update in the past several weeks.
 
I just reached out to my salesman and he said sometimes Lexus puts a QC hold on specific groups of vehicles if some issue was noted on the line. It doesn’t affect continued production. (Basically if they note an assembly defect they flag all vehicles made between the defect being detected and the last inspection and QC all those vehicles manually.)

My dealer said there is no hold on my vehicle at this time.

Yup, just got the call 😔. I didn’t hear 30 days but that would be a total nightmare.
 
They are having issues with the plastic protector on the hood coming lose and damaging the truck. My paint on my hood was damaged.

Ouch, if it happens, but I'd rather have my OT inspected and fixed now then the disappointment after the sale. So far, my sales guy hasn't been in contact.

It’s the protecting plastic along the front of the hood.

Thanks! I hope they fix it for your quickly. Are these the two small cushion/plastic pieces on each side that are part of the body of the truck not the hood and you can adjust their height by hand? Or is it the lining piece glued to the hood?
 
My Premium Plus arrived at port on May 17 and I just got word that it is being held part of the QC. Lexus will provide an update every Friday afternoon. Could be cleared sooner, could take 30 days. He said this process happens often with new models.

Mine is in Florida. Yes, if it really is just securing the protective wrapping hopefully it is a short delay to get that shored up. I guess that scenario is much better than build flaw concerns. My sales guy didn't know the cause though.
