2008 Lexus LS460 Problems

A clicking or knocking type sound may be noted from the brake actuator when applying the brakes lightly, or if the brake pedal is pressed while the vehicle is stopped. Our technicians tell us a revised brake actuator is available to correct this concern.

An intermittent no start condition may be caused by a failed "Push Start" switch. Replacing the failed switch should correct this concern.

The multi-cluster display screen may remain blank and navigation system errors may be noted. Our technicians tell us that these issues can often be corrected by reloading current software upgrades.

2008 Lexus LS460 Recalls

Toyota is recalling 2000–2008 Lexus models due to micro-foreign objects in the valve spring that can cause it to break. This could cause the engine to fail suddenly, while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of a crash. Toyota will notify owners and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge.

Ethanol fuels with a low moisture content will corrode the internal surface of the aluminum fuel delivery pipes. As the condition progresses, the Check Engine Light may illuminate and/or a fuel leak could develop under the hood. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel delivery pipes as necessary. This recall is expected to begin during February 2009. The Lexus recall number is 9LA.

Ok I purchased 2008 460L 35,000, traded in a BMW because of all of the trips to the shop.
