    Exploding sunroof Lexus LX 570 2016

    Hi Ahmed, You are in the right. This has been not a common problem but as you pointed out it is well known by anyone building cars. It becomes more interesting when you see there are other car makes that have the same problem. That makes me believe that there has to be a problem with the manufacturer of the glass. It is the only thing that makes sense. Good luck to you. Paul
  4. Hi Les, The seat cooling feature is always a head scratcher. On a couple of previous ES 350's I told the service writer at my dealer that my cool feature did not work. At this same time I had a Volvo 2007 S80 with the cooling feature as well. It got so cold you had to almost dial it off. Each time I went in to the dealer they said that they could not find anything wrong. Finally, I stumbled upon the solution. If you turn the temperature way down, say 65', and the fan on high with the cool setting. The seat will cool down quickly. Adjust the temperature to the desired setting. Paul

    WOW! The new 2019 ES 350

    Here is the new 2019 ES 350. Lexus has put some excellent features together. The sedan finally has an attitude and a more sport look. The 3.5 liter - 6 cyl remains the same as in past years. I have owned 4- ES 350's , all with the 3.5 engine. The power plant is bullet-proof. I've never had a wrench on one.

  6. This is an amazing video about how they make the "Structural Blue" paint for the new LC 500. This is not your fathers "Paint by Number" set. Paul https://lexusenthusiast.com/2017/12/08/video-the-science-behind-lexus-structural-blue-paint/

    Too high

    Hi David, I'm guessing that your trouble is setting your seat, steering wheel height, and steering wheel column angle. There are 10 settings for the seat alone, In your manual you'll see the forward and backward setting, lumbar support, seat back position, seat cushion up and down. The adjustment for the steering wheel height is the most in need of upward movement. There are a crazy number of adjustments you can set to 'on' or 'off'. Take out your owners manual and sit in the car and have some fun. We love our RX. Paul

    New LF 1 Crossover

    Here is a new photo array of the new LF -1 Crossover which will apparently replace the RX. What I noticed was the selection of power plants that will be available. Gas, fuel cells?, all electric, and hybred. Paul https://lexusenthusiast.com/2018/01/15/introducing-the-lexus-lf-1-limitless-flagship-crossover-concept/
  11. Hi Danny, It might be that the mirror switch is toggled in the middle position. This turns off the up/down function for the mirror. Move the switch to either the left or right. This might fix your problem, Paul

    MAJOR Lexus electric/fuel cell announcement

    Hi Trevor, It feels like this market will remain fluid for sometime yet. In the US I think that one of the factors for this market are the need to meet ongoing mandates for pollution emission, fuel economy and safety regulations. I'm pleased that the major makes are taking the lead for these technical challenges. Here in Des Moines a few of the downtown parking ramps have installed just a few electrical charging stations. I wonder who will pick up the tab to install many more connections. Some time ago I read an article that said Hawaii had begun testing hydrogen fuel cell cars and the experience of recharging our changing empty cells at a retrofited Paul
