    2008 IS 250 AWD
  1. My 08 IS250 AWD has just went through its 1st winter well.BUT THE WHEELS DID NOT .They are all pitted and look terrible.Has anyone else dealt with this and should this be covered by warranty?My dealer is 2 hrs away so I want to do some homework first before talking to them.I suspect that I will get the run around.
  2. Has anyone had a remote starter installed in there 08 IS250AWD in Saskatchewan?It sure would be nice to find someone that does.
  3. We all have block heaters here.They only help the car to start when its very cold.It still takes at least 10 minutes to warm up inside.I talked to my dealer & this is the way it is.I would have not bought this car if I had known this.IT SUCKS Here's how to solve it: Get BOTH keys. Once you start up the car, place one key in the ash tray or cupholder, or out of site. Take the other key with you out of the car. Once you close the door, lock it with the button on the second key fob (not the button on the door handle). The car will lock. Nope.Doesn't work. Guess it's only with the car off. Time to get a garage. Just a stupid design that I'll have to live with.A MAJOR STEP BACKWORDS

  7. Has anyone figured out how to start their car to warm it up but still be able to locke the doors?Also why would I be able to start my car,get out & let someone else drive away without me or my wife's smart key with them.This all seems to be way too easy for theft.Am I missing something here or what?Nothing seems to cover these issues in the manual unless I missed it. :(
  8. He knows about block heaters.ALL cars come with them up here.What he wants to know is about a remote starter.As do I.
  9. Was that for a 2008?My breaks are squeaking at 1000km but I don't know if there is a TSB for this on the 2008.
  10. This is issue has been discussed in this forum before. A friend of mine in Alberta, Canada who owns an IS told me that Lexus Canada offers one that costs CAD1,500.0. He himself did not install it. He says Lexus dealership says it took them 6 month to work this remote starter because of the car security system. I don't think you'd like to go to Alberta to have one installed in your IS. No I wouldn't even though Alberta is right next door to us in Sask.It is starting to look hopeless as far as a remote starter goes.
