A photo would no doubt help, but it's too dark. I'll get one in the am if needed.
I've only owned my 2003 LS430 a couple of months, so I am still learning things, I went out into the garage tonight and noticed that there is a blinking red light, a tiny dot, on the surround of the section that contains the rpm dial, speedometer, etc, It is just under a drawing of a car. It's on the left side of the surround. The owner's manual doesn't seem to show this anywhere. Any clue as to what it is trying to tell me? Thanks.
I had a 1996, 2004, 2006 and now 2015.... there is no way that beating you to death is normal. If all the mechahicals are good then that leaves the tires.
Trust me on the tires, get Michelin it you want a good ride. You get what you pay for and the other brands WILL impact ride quality.
