  1. Oil Pressure

    Typically oil pressure rises as the oil filter starts getting filled up with debris over time and reduces flow. Since your car is so new, there is relatively little resistance at the filter thus keeping the oil pressure low. If oil pressure suddenly drops however, that could indicate an oil leak or ruptured oil filter.
  2. Rain-Sensing Wiper Operation

    I had the dealer fix my "sensitivity Knob" recently. It works great. (as new). No charge either since they previously replaced the rain sensor. (I guess they forgot to hook-up or program the sensitivity sensor.
  3. Rain-Sensing Wiper Operation

    No I don't know where its at. But since I just had the auto wiper system fixed, I was going to take it back to the dealer. I'll keep you posted.
  4. Rain-Sensing Wiper Operation

    My auto sensor died. It worked great beforehand and adjustment sensitivity was excellent. Had it replaced by dealer. Now sensitivity is poor and changing the sensitivity knob makes no difference to the sinsitivity of the system at all. Its as if the sensitivity knob doesn't work at all.

    From the album 5500 Miles, 19 Days, National Parks...In a LX-570

    5500 Miles in 19 days! 2 drivers, 4 adults and 1 teen ager, and tons of gear. WoooHooo! One of my best trips ever! The LX-570 was in its element. This is what the car was really designed for. Whether on the freeway, a country road or 60+ mileas of back country dirt roads on the back side of Glacier Park, the car ran flawlessly. We almost ran out of gas on the back side (east side) of Glacier Park. We didn't realize (we're from California mind you) that the town of Browning shuts down for the winter. we ended up getting gas from the last remaining pump of the last gas station still open. As the clerk put it, Next time we get gas is in the spring! And this was early October. Yikes! What a difference a great car makes. The last time I did this this trip I was 23 years old, alone and drove a 1974 Dodge Duster. As an avid driver, I am more convinced than ever that this is the best luxury SUV in the world! As my 18 year old son who loves fast cars says: Dad, in this car you will never be the first one to get there. But you will ALWAYS get there in both COMFORT AND STYLE. EVENTUALLY! <br />Our rout: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Bear Lake, Teton National Park, Yellow Stone National Park, Glacier National Park, Seattle, Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, Mount Saint Helen, Portland, Red Wood Forrest National Park, San Francisco, Back to Los Angeles.

  11. Lx570 Gas Mileage

    I have a 2010 LX-570 with 42,000 miles and average about 14 miles per gallon in mixed driving. Unfortunately, too many sales people are either mis-informed, don't tell the truth or both.
  12. I have a 2010 LX 570 with 42,500 miles. (Purchased in October/2009) I replaced the rear pads at 35,000 miles. My fronts are due with my next oil change at 45,000 miles. Given that it's a 6000 Lbs SUV, I think thats reasonable. What you are experiencing seems to me unreasonable. But brake's wear is obviously very dependent on whether you drive aggresively or not. On a side note: Wierd that my rears needed replacement first. Hope this helps. I love my car and just recommended one to a friend today. (He just sold his 2003 LX470 with 250,000 miles and wants a new LX)
  13. Considring getting a new 2012 LS460L fully loaded with sport suspension, pre-collision, etc. (Sticker is $83,020.00) I read about many problems and recalls including engine valves on earlier models. Have these issues been resolved? Are there any other known problems with the LS460L after it's 2010 refresh? I currently have a 2004 LS430 Ultra Luxury that I will be passing on to my kid who turns 16 in a couple of months. I love that car! It has 90,000+ miles and has been pretty much trouble free. Thanks.
  14. Lx570 - New Tires Every 14,000 Miles?!?

    When I purchased my 2010 LX570 (in Southern California) Lexus offered the car with two different tires. Some came with the Dunlops and others with the Michelin Latitude tires. I was lucky - mine came with the Michelin Latitudes which I think are greatly supperior to the Dunlops. I have about 40,000 on them so far and could easily do another 10,000 or more. I would go to another dealer or an independent tire store for another opinion. Check the tire warranty that came with the car. Regardless, I would suggest you switch to the Michelin Latitudes as your next tire. You will never consider another tire after that. (The exception might be if you drive a lot in the snow. Michelin rated them only a 7 out of 10 for snow handling) Hope this helps. Good luck.
  15. As mentioned, lexus LS is on a 6 year cycle. As a rule of thumb, it's best to buy the car after it's 1st major refresh, since that is when they fix/improve the model significantly. I never buy the first year a car comes out. All my LS sedans were purchased right after their major refresh and I never had any major problems, bugs, etc. As for the current LS (LS460), the mid cycle refresh was done in 2010. So the 2010 model year or newer are after the mid cycle refresh, so that's what I recommend you buy.
