    Lexus no1 AGAIN by Consumer Reports

    Hi Trevor, I read a comment on another site the other day.The writer remarked that the Lexus is not a real luxury car sense it doesn't have the heritage the Mercedes has. I guess that means your car would have had to have been driven by Adolph Hitler!! LOL Paul
  2. https://lexusenthusiast.com/2018/10/25/lexus-named-most-reliable-brand-in-annual-co Consumer Reports says no to MB and BMW!!! Paul
  3. Hi Mark, I'm sorry no one has given you a reply. The navigation system back then was a lot less user friendly than now and there may not be anyone out there with a lot of tech info. In the 2007 era nav. was a reasonably new product and Lexus never intended it to be reparable by the owner. Like the Mark Levinson stereo system, it to is a plug-in fix and not intended to be owner repaired. Given all this, your best option might be to buy a nav. software disc and try to reload the base brains. Lexus dealers had and may still have the disc for updating the guidance information. They may have the program software but I don't know for sure. You may find help on e-bay. There is frequently Lexus products available. I know this isn't much help but it is the only info. I have. You may find some information on our data library. Do a search using several different search strings. Best of luck, Paul

    Hi Tony The problem your having is one I'm not familiar with. But a 9 year old car with that number of miles does not rule out a repaired transmission. I would recommend asking around for a reputable independent mechanics shop and get a second opinion. Also, go to our database and look through the past postings about this problem. Go to the top right and click on search. Paul

    NAVIGATION

    Well that ones a a new one. I honestly never heard of that problem before. It sounds like a short or lose connection somehow. To get started make sure your right hand isn't accidentally rubbing against the navigation controls on the shift console. A pressing or moving of the joystick around can change your screen position. Probably, your best bet is just going to your dealer and have them run some diagnostics on the complete system. Paul
  7. Like to be on the water? Then this will fill all of your dreams for a boat and then some. Below is the introduction of Lexus new LUXURY yacht line. IT IS SIMPLY INCREDIBLE! Make plans for the Riviera and show up in style. https://lexusenthusiast.com/2018/09/07/lexus-announces-ly-650-65-foot-luxury-yacht/

    All Lexus to be Electrified

    Lexus has announced that all models will be electrified by 2025. We knew this was coming and it will be interesting how they roll this out for each model. For some reason I bet you won't see an LFA with an electric motor any time soon. Cheers, Paul https://lexusenthusiast.com/2018/09/04/lexus-vehicle-lineup-to-be-fully-electrified-by-2025/

    insurance

    Hi there. I'm sorry, but our software does not have translation abilities. Paul
  11. Hi there. You probably already know this, but you should check the fit of the tire to make sure it doesn't rub against the wheel well sides when turning corners. Pa

    es330 drivers window

    It is possible that the link mechanism which connects to the motor may be broken or a limit switch which controls the amount of up and down limits.

    es330 drivers window

    Hi William and welcome, I had a ES 2005 so it would a duplicate to yours. Obviously its been quite a while since I've been around this year/model. There are a few ideas I can give you. If I understand you correctly, the problem is only with the driver side window. If the rear view mirrors switch is left in the middle position, neither of the mirrors will work. Another idea is the window lock button. Either of the two can cause the problem. If not I would strongly suggest looking at our data bank. There are hundreds of searches you might find on this topic. Hope this helps, Paul

    parts failure

    No its not. Lexus is shown to be the most reliable car, above any other brand. Both Consumer Reports and JD Power make them no 1. However something like a water pump won't last forever. Be sure to ask your dealer why the part went bad, should this be expected with other parts and what parts have use limits . Paul
  15. Hi Michelle and welcome. My 2016 -ES 350 had a dial on the shift handle panel. You would turn it to Normal, Sport, or Economy. What ever the dial was set for when you shut the the car off, is the setting you would see when you start the car the next time. I haven't had much experience with the RCF so I don't feel comfortable with saying what is or isn't factual. My suggestion is to look through your owners manual and/or just give a dealer a call for an accurate answer. Paul
