  1. Correct, the LS460 has a timing chain, not a timing belt, it doesn't need to be changed. My guess is its a bad motor or transmission mount somewhere...
  2. The dealer has to program it unfortunately, you cannot do it yourself.
  3. I was just looking at pictures of that CLA, that looks sharp!

    Why thank you guys! Thats very appreciated, totally unnecessary but very much appreciated!
  5. $30 is a small price to pay for that kind of information IMHO...
  6. It averages at higher than 40, just doesn't display it on the graph.
  7. No, they are basically the same car.

    2014 Lexus Is

    I like the car more and more the more I look at it.
  9. I personally would never replace just two tires, but especially not with different model tires. The EL400 is a pretty terrible tire, I'd take it as an opportunity to upgrade personally. I have not had the Turanza Serenity tires, but I did have the Turanza LS-V which was that tire's predecessor. They were very good tires. However, those tires are only $14 a tire cheaper than the H Rated Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires on TireRack. For that money I would take the Michelins any day.
  10. Yep you can register as an LOC member too to get the discount.
  11. Welcome to the LOC! Do you have good maintenance records? I'd have the car inspected by an independent mechanic, but if its well cared for they last forever. $10,500 seems like a pretty good price...
  12. I wouldn't worry about life. If you look on the Prius boards people have 300k+ on Priuses on the original batteries. OEM I'm sure they're incredibly expensive, but there are some aftermarket solutions that are less than $2k...
  13. Dealership inventory is getting better on that model, you should be able to get something off of MSRP. I don't think invoice is realistic though. Even on the gas ES when I was shopping in November, I could get $2,000 or $2,500 off, but that was all I could get. The Hybrid will be tighter. If you can get $2,000 off that car I say you did well.
  14. Even good quality tires can't withstand being improperly mounted and balanced.
