  1. Today
  2. its between red and brown closer to the red side
  3. Thank you. As a CR subscriber I have seen the rating, which is one of the reasons I stayed with the RX. I am not teeny tiny, and every other car seat has been fine. A neighbor who is considerably broader in the beam, and heftier, also found the discomfort. (Hope she doesn’t read this!)
  4. Consumer Reports does rate your vehicle's front seats as much better than average. Sometimes those with very little body fat are less comfortable sitting on seats that are extremely comfortable for the average-sized person. Here's a photo of the ratings that include your RX.
  5. Hmm, in terms of finding the right wheels for you, 4WheelOnline has a lot of options to offer. Check them out, all of their products are high-quality and affordable.
  6. Britrom is the owner who originally posted this warning. His post is the third one from the top of this page. You may want to contact him.
  7. Yesterday
  8. brown is bad, red is good, dark brown is real bad but again the solenoids on Toyota made cars do quit working after a couple of decades.
  9. Dawg gonnit. That does not sound good at all. Very good description by the way. It sounds like your car was supposed to have inflated seats and the air leaked out. Just kidding but my gosh. Keep pestering Lexus.
  10. Is the fluid Blood Red ? Brown ? Thanks
  11. My new RX350 has the most uncomfortable seat cushions that hit in a very strange way. The several ways I can describe it would be rather indelicate. Let's just say it feels like there a divider going down the middle, or I am sitting on an egg...OK...it feels like I am being goosed by my car seat! All the seats in the vehicle have that feeling, but I am most concerned about the drivers seat. I notice it more some times than others. I have only driven locally, so I don't know how bad a long trip will feel. My dealer says there is a layer of gel as a padding that is normal: I thought it was
  12. oh ok yeah it still has the proper amount of fluid, thank you 🙂
  13. Any particular window? Or all of them? I gotta ask: is anybody sleeping in the car that you may not know about? In my dads non climate control garage if there's a big change in weather, especially warm to cool where inside is in say a humid 80's but then quickly falls to the 50's or 60's when a cold front passes through, everything has a coating of condensation so it could be as simple as weather changing.
  14. This mechanic used a Snapon scan tool to calibrate the seat sensor: (1) Lexus RX330 Air Bag Light Case Study and OCS Reset with Snapon Scanner - YouTube
  15. Replace the cabin filter, Run the Heat/Air through all of it's paces, Take your time....What has been the average Humidity outside ? Garage Humidity ? How often do you run the air conditioner ? Thanks
  16. I have owned this car since new. It has been garaged all its life, low mileage and in excellent shape. I have been parking it outside now for a bit and noticed condensation forming on the windows? Any idea what may be causing the condensation? Sunroof drains are clear and not an issue. Thought maybe the door seals may not be sealing correctly? I would appreciate any thoughts on this subject. Thanks
  17. Was out and about today at a craft show on an awesome weather day. Taking a casual stroll with Mrs Fixer I looked in the distance and saw a really sexy car in the grass parking lot. After commuting to and from work in my work vehicle for the last 21 days in a row I'd forgotten I didn't drive that. Hey, that's my car. Woohoo!!
  18. piston slap was a problem with 90's GM cars like Caveliers and Skyhawks but I'd not heard of it in any Toyota made cars.
  19. It's probably solenoids gone bad but at least check the fluid level.
  20. Last week
  21. Greetings, I just bought a 2004 GX470 with 121k miles on it, serviced at the dealer til 2018, driven very little in recent years, from family. I have the dealer service records, but nothing really big seems to have been replaced. It drives like a new vehicle, but I need to get it to my mechanic to check it over and add a hitch so that we can pull our 2500 lb camper. Any advice on what I should look for? Is the air suspension proficient at towing a lighter trailer, or do I need to swap out for conventional suspension first thing? Word of mouth is that timing belt was done (there was a non
  22. Dating a woman with a Lexus (RX330 AWD) she bought used out of D.C., brought back to Michigan as it was rust free albeit high miles. Passenger airbag light on and they said it would be a simple fix at a Lexus or Toyota Dealer when she got back home. Take it to Lexus Dealer and they scoff and say, "just trade it in on a new car, why waste your and our time." She says, "it is the same year, model and color of the John Wick movie car, I love that movie. Takes it to Toyota Dealer and they say no problem, $200 and we can reset it and you will be on your way. She starts car
  23. i probably should i dont know why i didnt think of it, but would that completely prevent it from going into the drive gears?
  24. Water pumps always weep a small amount around the main pump bearing weep hole as they get older and unless you are visibly low on coolant AND smell coolant after running it at highway speeds (where a leaking water pump would mist the exhaust from the passing high speed air) you are not at risk. Also bad water pumps will make squealing noises months before they fail. What bothers me more is that they are mentioning doing the water pump without mentioning replacing the timing belt and pulleys (timing belt service kit). You need to remove the timing belt to get to the water pump. No c

  26. I own a 2009 ES 350 with 76000 miles on it I bought used. When I had my mechanic change the oil and check it over he said it had a piston slap. I am asking my fellow Lexus owners if this is a common problem? How serious is it ? Thanks Jim
