  1. At 30 thousand miles, my 2013 ES350 has started to produce a new noise from the left front. It is noticeable from about 30 mph up to 50 mph sounds like the noise from a very aggressive snow tire. When I put the car in neutral and coast, the noise doesn't diminish as the engine RPMs decline..The car has Michelin Primacy MXV4s. Any guesses what this noise might be? Stan
  2. I had seen the Moderator's reply to that August 16, 2005 post, but have not been able to discover just how to do the adjustments either
  3. I'm interested too. I may be missing something, but I haven't been able to find a thread of previous postings about this.
  4. I have a 2006 GS 300 RWD with 90,000 miles on it. I consistently get 34 when driving at 70 mph or less on the highway. Mixed highway/cit 27 or 28.
  5. none of those issues for me so far with over 46k's on my gs300 06 None of those issues either for me with over 90k on my 06 gs300
  6. Even simpler: Roll down the driver's side window. Get out and lock the car with the key fob. Reach in from the outside and open the door with the inside door latch. That should set off the alarm.
  7. I've got 60,000 miles on my Bridgestone Serenitys on my GS 300 RWD, and am very happy with them. They are extremely quiet, and have good traction on wet pavement.
  8. Sorry to read about your tire problem. My OEM Yokohamas were not run flats, but they did the same thing at 15,000 miles. Yokohama tried to blame it on Lexus, but the alignment was perfect. I replaced them with Bridgestone Serenitys, and have put 40,000 miles on them without a problem.
  9. My 2006 GS300 RWD has 88000 miles on it, and doesn't burn a drop between oil changes. Stan
  10. Hi: I'm thinking of putting my GS 300 RWD in storage until next April. Are there issues that I should be careful about? Stan
  11. Hi: I have a 2006 Lexus GS 300 Rear Wheel Drive. Navigation (Lexus upated 2008), Mark Levinson Sound, Heated & cooled seats, Park assist, Rear Camera, Blue Tooth, SnoTrac. Cypress Grey and Cream leather. I also have all service records since the car was new. It has 87,000 miles on it from regular travelling between Minnesota, where I bought it at Lexus of Wayzata, Chicago, and Ontario Canada. I'm retired now, with three cars, and have to thin out the fleet. $24000.00 US. Call me at 519-754-4158, or email me at stan.cox@sympatico.ca
  12. I have a great 2006 GS 300 RWD with Nav, Mark Levinson, etc, etc., which I have driven in Canada for for 3 winters with no problem at all with Dunlop Graspics. I'm considering selling it. It's an American car which I bought in '06 at Wyzata Lexus in Minnesota. With the American Dollar at a premium against the Canadian $, you'd do pretty well. Stan
  13. I've had great luck with a set Bridgestone Serenity tires on my GS 300 RWD. They're comfortable, very quiet, and excellent in performance. I stopped trying to get through winter with "all weather" tires, though, and use a set of Dunlop Graspics for the winter months. Everybody I know who has run flats poor mouths them for a hard ride and low endurance. Stan
  14. I've had similar quotes on a trade in as well. Local ads on Lexus lots are showing them at about $26000 to $28000. Stan
  15. Mine did the same thing. One dealer diagnosed it as a ballast. The next dealer diagnosed it as a bulb. Both said that they had TSBs on it. Lexus replaced the bulb as a Customer Satisfaction gesture. Stan
  16. I've never redlined mine. Come to think of it, I don't think it's ever seen 5000 RPM. I'll wait to see what others say before I try it. Stan
  17. Yes, that tapping sound was quite noticable just in the last very cold spell here. I haven't had it to the dealer yet, but I'm putting in some injector detergent with the next tank of gas. Since it probably won't be that cold again until next winter, I'm not sure if this will help or not. Stan
  18. I'm watching this one closely, hoping that somebody comes up with a solution. Stan
  19. I too went to Bridgestone Turanza Serenity on my 06. What a huge difference between them an the Yokohamas that were OEM on the car. The Serenitys are quiet and much longer wearing. Stan

  21. It sounds to me like a main part of the problem is with dealer attitude. I had the opposite experience with another dealer. After I purchased the 2006 GS 300, i noticed that the paint started to peel around the sensors in the back bumper. The dealer was very accommodating, and said that they had no knowledge of any paint repair having been done prior to that. But they gave me a brand new loaner, and had it repaired at their cost, with a perfect paint colour match up. Stan
  22. One other thing about my 06 GS 300 RWD, I've never had a problem in snow, in Ontario, or Minnesota. I put on Dunlop Graspics, and use the Snow Control mode and common sense. Stan
  23. I have a 2006 GS 300 with "all the bells and whistles" except for AWD. It has 78000 miles on it, and remains an excellent car. The dash rattles a little bit in extremely cold weather, but other than that, it's a quiet, beautiful car. In ordinary weather, there are no rattles. Lexus service at Lexus of Wayzata Minnesota, where I bought it, is superb. Since Minneapolis is my wife's home town, we're there a lot, so service there is no problem, even though I live in Ontario Canada. Stan
