2008 Lexus LS460 Problems

Brakes -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The inside rear view mirror may become discolored or difficult to see clearly from. A revised mirror is available to correct this concern.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The supplemental restraint system (SRS) warning light may illuminate with code B1861 and/or B1866 stored. Our technicians tell us that replacing a section of wiring harness behind the dashboard may be necessary to correct this concern.

Engine, January 16, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

2008 Lexus LS460 Reviews

Ok I purchased 2008 460L 35,000, traded in a BMW because of all of the trips to the shop. Nonetheless, I've owned my vehicle for 3 months, have been to the shop for wind noise...they tell me all normal but the Service Manager did admit to design flaw. Brake actuator replaced another trip, Brakes seem to grab, door garnish TSIB design flaw and now the car stalls,intermittenly, on acceleration from a stop or a roll. Because its intermittent, presents a problem as Lexus says they can do nothing unless they get it to duplicate although ther is a TSIB L-SB-0033-08. Hell, I just do not know anymore, maybe I should go Domestic????

Great car but...After only 100 miles the Mark Levinston Audio stopped playing (Replaced). At 16k miles noticed extreme shimmy in braking (Replaced Front Rotors) At 40k miles vehicle engine started ideling roughly (#3 Valve Spring broke), replaced all valve springs as part of a massive recall. At 53k miles shimmy in wheels has returned, noticing a severe lag in pedal to actual acceleration (intermittant), Drivers window seal is allowing wind noise to permeate cabin. For the cost of this vehicle, it is not measuring up to the quality namesake of perfection that LEXUS is so fond to say they are in Pursuit of...Keep Chasing!!!

teriffic car but repairs and routine maintenance way too expensive. also, paint job for a car that costs this much is subpar any little scratch thats it

Single handedly the worst car. Consumer reports obviously has some strange standards when it comes down to recommending vehicles. Suspension has design flaws the factory is working on, front control arms continually need replacement along with front struts, rear springs were defective along with the strut mounts there. Valve spring replacement on the motor, brake actuator, all window trim and seals for noise reduction, rotors twice due to suspension flaws, defective rear axle, and it just never stops. I am glad it is still under warranty. Lexus corporate is horrid to work with.
