maybe it IS a squeaking belt? Using a mechanics stethoscope or even a short length of garden hose you can 'listen' along each valve cover to see if the noise is coming from a particular area.

I just bought 2008 LS460 certified one. I noticed that I have the same probelm. I asked a local lesus dealer to check the engine and take care of the noise, and they said everything is fine. The noise still bothers me a lot. I have 2 other Lexus (ES300 and GX470) and know that the noise is not normal for Lexus. IF you have resoved the issue, please let us know.

It's not normal. Bring it back and tell them to fix it. If they won't, ask them to show you exactly what it is.
