Hi,

Just bought this car over a month ago and got couple of questions-- may be someone can help me out.

When I try to run a car after it has been parked overnight, it makes a squeaking noise from the steering wheel. I don't hear anything from it when I am driving it on the freeway or on a road. Its just in the parking lot itself that I get to hear it. Just wondering if I need to worry about it. Have checked the power steering fluid level and its fine.

Also, I took my car for a 30 point inspection and they told me I should replace 3 belts costing me 15 each plus 45 in labor. He

didn't say anything about what belts though.

Its an 00 ES 300 with 96,000 miles on it.

dudhi, My 97 ES300 makes the same noise, it has done this for 3 years now, no issues what-so-ever. I drive cars to their customers at work. I hear the noise in RX's, LS's ES's etc. It is caused by some part in the steering shaft that is a rubber seal, doesnt matter. The noise post, I have seen it on every lexus forum at least 3 times. No worries my friend.

Where did you take the car?
