  1. Latest news - the factory is sending in a rep to examine the car. The dealer's service folks are not exactly proud of that, particularly after they're top suspension man and best trained tech sayt he car rides rougher than it should. "Definitely not the Lexus luxury we'd expect." The dealer now has 3 460L's exhibiting the same issue to some degree, one worse than ours, one slightly better. They're hunting for Michelin tires to retrofit but there is a shortage in this area. They've done one of the 3, not ours, but have no owner feedback as oif yet. It is beginning to feel like they (Lexus

  4. To early to tell???? You mention in your original post that you've had the vehicle in 3 times in 400 miles so you should know immediately whether the vehicle is riding normal or not. Before your third visit, you should have insisted on driving another vehicle to see of the problem was present and if not, the service dept should have done a wheel swap allowing you to eliminate the problem being wheel/tire related. It's doubtful you had developed flat spots from the vehicle being transported or sitting for any length of time since this sort of issued generally takes much more time to develop. L
  5. Today Lexus installed Michelin HX MXM4's all around after doing a full inspection of the running gear. We've only added 50 miles so too early to tell but they seem quieter although that was not the issue. We'll know more after a few days of driving and update all. Apparently Michelin is their answer to ride issues across the product line.
  6. Jeff, Our dealer, in concert with Lexus factory, just installed Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 tires to replace rough riding EL42 Bridgestones. We only have a few miles on the car since, <50, but they seem to be smoother and a lot quieter. It was their recommendation to install those rather than a nother set of Bridgestones or the Dunlops. FWIW.

  8. Given there is about $9K mark up between MSRP and dealer invoice, you should be able to time the purchase to an end of month, or end of quarter, and negotiate hard on the last evening. It worked surprisingly well for us on a 460L. Too bad the car rides like it has rocks int he tires. Be sure to test drive the car you will buy with all installed options before buying.
  9. Thanks for all the replies and the idea of printing the emails. I've found other postings on another site abnout the same issue at 3,000 miles with tires being pulled off to correct so here's hoping. We do like the car but the treatment has been incredible. Once resolved I'll let everyone know about the dealer. What exactly do the hold downs do in shipment and would the car be driveable safely with them still in place?
  10. I also use a Noah with good results. It's on a Corvette that gets parked at work under a stand of trees that drop pollen and sap. The cover saves a lot of time not having to clay bar the car so often but is a pain to put on and off each time. I also use it at the airport even when parking covered.
  11. Hello to all. I'm new to the forum and seeking help with a significant problem. Has anyone experienced very rough ride quality in their LS460L? We just purchased a black 460L for my wife trading in a wonderful LS430 (after 2 LS 400's and an RX300) and find the car to ride very rough, and not at all like the demo cars we drove. The car has the standard suspension as did the demo cars we tested. With only 400 milers on the car, its been in the dealer's shop three times already. The dealer is clueless and Lexus Corp customer service (1-800-xxx-xxxx) is useless in dealing with the dealer. T
