  1. Go to "real" auto Locksmith ( LS). They are be able to program a valid lexus made Key. I own such a business and we do it all the time! If there are too many keys already programmed a real auto LS can wipe the computer clean ( just Like Clinton) and re program the keys you have.
  2. Tires for Rx350

    Go with Michelin for the ride and quietness
  3. Concur. I would ask the shop if they buy & install them ! If theirs leak would they charge you to install them ? Find a shop that won't and stay away from Rock Auto!
  4. Must be a bad lot... Sorry it happened to you! You might try KYB corporate!
  5. I doubt it since the warranty is for the parts ! You have me worried since I bought the same product from a different vendor ! Did the box say Made in Japan or China?
  6. In adding BT Audio streaming to our 09 Nav Rx350 we discovered we needed Y connection to both the disk/ tape player and the BT RX for some if the AC controls to work!
  7. Thanks super moderator! Simply stated the more technology higher probability of something to go wrong! Add to that the premium cost of the hybrid so unless you are driving alot alot the ROI isn't there! From what I've been told and listed posts the hybrid repairs are far higher in frequency for the 400 models vs the 330/350! Perhaps the word "issues" might have been too broad! Anyway I'm glad your happy with your 400H! Don't believe everything you read!
  8. When it comes to RX I like 04-09 330/350 non hybrid all wheel drive ! Hybrids have issues! Had the opportunity to buy 2011newer style wife loves the arm rest but design changed! Too stodgy and big for her! 04-09 very reliable ! 200k miles on 04 and 100k on 09 no repairs just maintenance! Good luck

  10. There are two com links to the car ! One for the the remote and the other to the engine which is called a transponder! You cannot program the key to car with those instructions it will not ! ! You need to interface with OBD2 port! Good luck
  11. Ebay is not always a trusted source! The key must be programmed to the vehicle ECU! I would get a qualified auto Locksmith to come to your home to cut and program the key! $250 for Lexus key I s not unreasonable!
  12. I own a LS company ! You need to go reputable LS who specializes in auto key makes! Depending on the software and key used there may be add key function! Otherwise the immobilizer needs to be reset and all keys present! $150 $180 a fair price
  13. Great Forum

    Never use graphite only silicone type on the key! Graphite will gum up and wear wafers faster!
  14. Determine, what are your needs now and in the future. SUV has more utility..space. Sedan more fun if space is enough go with it..
  15. Comment check the weight rating of the passenger tires SUV much heavier especially 4 wheel drive! My experience withtwo brands Michelin and Bridgwstone Bridgestone Alenza Plus nearly as Quiet and comfortable as Michelin at $150 USD savings
