  1. how hard is it to get at the battery for an LS400? i know on some foreign brands its behind the tire.
  2. If you're having trouble choosing between which lexus model you should buy, I WILL ALWAYS vote for the GS, it is the best by far for looks and power
  3. speaking of rear seat removal. i was just on another forum site and some lady was talking about losing weight after baby delivery and the preferred bra she wore for nursing. i asked her what that had to do with lexus and got no response
  4. nice wax job rook. i don't care who makes it, the lexus is still the best car
  5. Wow! those look great. I'm excited to hear about how the GS hybrid performs on the road. I love my Lexus hybrid.
  6. The extent to which I can work on my Lexus RX350 is an oil change. Not very impressive!
  7. My Lexus RX 330's defrost will not work. While I'm driving in the rain the whole windshield will fog up, and I literally have to pull over to fix the problem. I think I may have leak, that let's in moisture. Has anyone heard of this problem?
  8. I am in dire need of new tires for my 04'Lexus SC 430. What do you recommend for a daily commute of about 20miles, with little need for driving in snow/ bad weather.
  9. I use Castrol Syntec Blend 5W-30 when I get a Lexus oil change.
  10. I got mine on for $90, the GROM Audio iPod to Toyota / Scion / Lexus Car Adapter/ Interface. I really like it. Easy to use/install.
  11. Well depending on how much you're willing to pay, you could ask your Lexus dealership. It never hurts to get a price! But yes, it sounds like this is not a DIY project.
  12. I have blown many a speaker in my Lexus coupe, and it sounds like (or rather lack of sounds) you have done the same. If the sound is coming in and out, you might need to replace one or more of the speakers.
  13. I usually just have Dobbs replace my batteries. Is is not necessarily something the Lexus dealer has to do because it is a fairly simple maintenance update. Also batteries should average about $80-$100, no more than that.
  14. I use the Goodyear Eagle GT II on my GS, and I am constantly driving out to Colorado throughout the winter. These are a great year-round tire
  15. $508 does seem a little steep. Have you looked at pricing for the part online? No matter what, you will probably have to have guy install it, but at least you could cut costs for the part by shopping around. I wonder what caused both sides of your GS 350 trim to start peeling away?
  16. My 2001 Lexus RX 300 is cruising strong at 143K. I've not even had to do any major maintenance, besides routine oil changes, tire rotation, etc. Great car!
  17. I call my RX 300, Lexy or the T-Rex. Original? No, probably not the most. So I'm interested to hear what others named their Lexus! Glad to hear I'm not the only one who thinks their vehicle need a proper first name.
  18. Lexus of Bridgewater, my New Jersey Lexus dealer, has experienced Lexus service expert. They can help with LuxLink technology.
  19. Well it could be a few things. I would give your undercarriage a good looking at.It could be the lower ball joint. Check your tires for uneven wear, and inspect your ball joints for torn boots. There is even the possibility you just need at little WD40 or try to using silicone spray where the metal meets the rubber. Lexus maintenance is less expense if you take a proactive approach to these types of problems.
  20. Check you battery cables to see if they are corroded, loose or smashed. They may need to be replaced. Poor connections will cause the alternator to go out more frequently. I am almost positive it has to do with your Lexus's battery.
  21. It's most likely an incorrect Freon charge. The amount of Freon in the system is extremely critical, especially in the hot months of July and August. Another cause could be a clogged radiator or condenser, which would cause your AC to run less efficiently. Regardless, have it checked out at your local Lexus service center.
  22. Sounds like it could be lose bearings or your drive train. Either way, not a problem worth letting get worse. Lexus or not, cars should not be making a "clunking" noise. I would take it into a Lexus dealer or shop before it gets more severe (aka more expensive).
  23. I have a goldendoodle as a frequent backseat passenger in my Lexus. I purchased a canine seat protector, except mine is beige to match the seat better. They are easy to put in and take out and thankfully, easy to clean. Let's get you and that schnauzer back on the road in that Lexus SC 430.
  24. Strange. This is a new issue to my knowledge. I've been researching online, and haven't found many solutions. But the GS300 is quality Lexus. I agree with SW03ES to stay on Lexus, because it sounds like nothing you could have prevented. Talk to your Lexus dealership. At the very least they can point you in the direction of new or used Lexus parts.
  25. One of the first signs of low freon is cold on one side and hot on the other. Any basic mechanic should know to check that. I'd turn that Lexus sedan around and demand your money back from the tire shop, and head straight to your Lexus dealer.
