Sorry for the late reply. I don't exactly know why your alarm would be going off if you never locked the car and you leave the keys inside. The only thing I could figure out is if someone locked the car and you had one faulty door lock that didn't lock, and somebody opened that unlocked door then that might trigger the alarm. Did you ever have this problem resolved?

Alarm, brakes, and Cruise Problems. 2012 GX 460 just purchased two weeks ago. Female. Hard to believe I paid this much money and have these problems.

1. Went to visit my daughter and car was left in the driveway. Not under or in garage or carport for first time since purchasing it. Lightning storm then rain began about 12. At 12:30 alarm started going off then cut itself off. Woke up neighborhood and thought maybe it was someone else's alarm. Happened again thirty minutes later. Knew then it was mine by seeing the lights, etc. Went out and checked it and everything was OK. I left it unlocked. Twenty minutes later, it happened again. Then happened again. Lightning let up and rain started pouring. Didn't happened after the lightning storm settled down. Was up until 4 watching and waiting. Very embrassing and tiring. Buying cookies/cupcakes for neighborhood since I know it had them up. Pressed the button on key remote and sometimes it took several times before the alarm would cut off. Dealer doesn't know and has never heard of this. Any suggestions? On old car (not a Lexus) never did this.

2. Also when have cruise on and car goes uphill, the rpm goes nuts. Goes from low 2 to over 3. Nearly enough for a whip lash. What's up with that. Very annoying. My husband hates that and I know it's gulping gas when it does it.

3. Question: are the brakes supposed to be so soft? I have to press them halfway down before they react at all. Not reactive at all when first pressed. I don't like this at all.

Beginning to think I've made a very serious and expensive mistake.

Wow don't know where to start but maybe first start a new thread not post inside this one to get more feedback. I have 0 of the problems you have. My gx460 has been flawless. The brakes are soft but considering I have had a Mercedes and have a BMW which have touchy brakes it isn't at all a big deal. Sorry you are not happy with your GX but the alarm and the cruise issues aren't common at all the brakes are what they are.

Edit: I see you did start a new thread.
