  1. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hot off the Press.....! Here is the new Consumer Reports video review on the new 7 seat 2018 RX 350. All things considered when it comes to"CR" it's a good report. Paul https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite

    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
  9. 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.

  11. 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/
