Service Bulletin for Engine Ticking Noise code P0014. A Dealer tells me it will be $7,800 to repair and Lexus will only provide $500 toward the repair if done by Lexus b/c I am over the 70,000 mile warranty. This is ridiculous!!

This was related to the rubber oil cooling lines failing and losing all oil (repaired that and now the valve timing actuator needs repair). Never had an issue with my Honda...miss that sewing machine!
