  1. Hello, Is it just me, or has the LS600hL become a rough riding car? My 2010 seems to ride much rougher thatn my 2008 did. The 2010 telegraphs any irregularity in the road and will ride like a boat (swaying up and down) in all settings. Has this become normal? I switched tired from Bridgestone to Michelins and they helped a little. Can the suspension program or system pressure be altered to fix? Is there an aftermarket solution? This has become very annoying to me, I can hardly drink a cup of coffee without it spilling, oh, it also seems worse at city speeds. any feedback would be appreciated, Hank
  2. Skin, I did read it, up it really doesn't. This is my third LS with this system and the other two didn't have the problem. It would be more useful to respond to a member's question technically, in my opinion. thanks anyway,
  3. Hello, I have a 2010 LS600hL and the rear view camera washes out in bright light. In fact in sunlight, a blue vertical line run across the screen. also in parking lots at night, the lot lights will wash out the image in the screen. If the lightng is just right, the image is good. My 2010 LS600, nor my LS430L had this issue. My dealer said that he cheked out other new 2013 LS's and they had the same behaviour; so therefore, my system was ok. I said "it may be ok, but its not right". So at this point, im stuck with it. has anyone else experienced this? cheers, hank
  4. My 2010 LS600hL rides rough as well. I had a 2008 LS600hL that was smoother than the 2010....I just swapped the Bridgestone's out for Michelins with minimal improvement. The 2010 is a CPO so it still has warrantee, but the dealer tells me that its to spec. any suggestions on what to do? thanks, hank
  5. Thanks Jeff, sounds like we could make a deal. I would like to trade if our wood matches. hank
  6. xhybrdx I did order it, but it wasn't the right part, it was only the insert to replace the ashtray that slides out. any other ideas? in the meantime, I'm plugging it into the rear outlet and dragging the power cord to the front seat, not very elegant for a LS600... thanks to all, hank Preferences
  7. I know that I'm doing something wrong, but can some one please help guide me to,the web page for ordering parts from Sewell? Thanks
  8. It sure looks like it. The dealer said that I also needed the wood trim since the two styles are different sizes, but it looks the same to me. Thank you very much! I'll buy it and see. Cheers! Hank
  9. Thanks for your response. The cars come with either an outlet and ash tray or a storage compartment. Mine has the latter and I want to convert it to the outlet version. Now I have to plug my phone to the rear seat outlet and stretch the cord to the front.
  10. Just getting around my CPO 2010 LS600hl and want to change out the storage compartment in the front dash with the cigarette light/ash tray arrangement. No not for smoking, but to have the power outlet for my phone. The dealer wants, wait for this...$1,700!!! $1,400+ is for the replacement wood trim/door, since it is a different size going from one configuration to the other. Sooo, does anyone know of an aftermarket kit that I can get to install a power outlet in the compartment? thanks, hank
  11. I just got a 2010 LS600 and am noticing that the doors pop when I open them. Is there a lub or anything I can do? It seems to be 3 of the doors and trunk. Thanks, Hank
  12. I just bought a 2010 LS600hL and it came with the front license plate bracket installed. I will remove it, since I think that car looks cleaner without it. What's the best way to deal with the holes left behind? Is there a filler or plug kit? thanks for your help, hank
  13. I also have a 2008 LS600hL and consistently get 23+ MPG. I record my milage via Gasbuddies, the on board computer overstates it, in my case. BTW I have 145,000 miles and just bought a used 2010 CPO. good luck, my likes to be driven. cheers,
  14. Hello, Does anyone know when Lexus reduced the size of the traction battery from the original in 2008? Has anyone had one fail? Mine has almost 1450,000 and still strong. BTW, it also has the original brakes!! thanks, hank Preferences § 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - = Backspace Tab q w e r t y u i o p [ ] Return capslock a s d f g h j k l ; ' \ shift ` z x c v b n m , . / shift English Deutsch Español Français Italiano Português Русский alt alt Preferences
  15. thanks for your advise, I agree with your comments about it being an option. Also I dont understand why someone wouldnt have ordered it for a car like this.
