Lexus GX470 Recalls
The vehicle capacity weight on the tire and loading information label and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) on the certification label is insufficient for certain vehicles. Some vehicles had accessories installed that caused the vehicle to exceed the GVWR value. These labels do not comply with federal safety standards. Dealers will replace the certification, tire and loading label, and correct the owner's manual as necessary to remedy this problem. This recall is expected to begin during October 2009.
The incorrect gross vehicle weight rating rating (GVRW) date was printed on the certification label; therefore, it does not meet federal regulations. New labels must be special ordered for each vehicle. Once the correct label is received, the original one will be replaced.
The middle row seat behind the driver may not latch correctly due to interference from the Lexus Link System (LLS) storage case. In the seat is not latched correctly, in the event of a crash, the seat occupant would face an increased risk of injury. Dealers will remove the LLS case panels around the seat stopper to correct this concern.

SOMETIMES WHEN I'M AT A STOP THE VEHICLE JUMPS AS IF SOMEONE HAS HIT ME FROM BEHIND. IT ALSO HAS STARTED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN DRIVE IT FEELS LIKE IT IS IN A LOWER GEAR.
I have just bought a 2007 GX 470 with 93k miles on it. When I'm at a stop sign and let off the brake petal, I hear a metal on metal "clunk". A similar skip is also intermintant as I accelerate. Has anyone had this issue and had it diagnosised accurately? My dealership says it's normal - I say that's B-S !! email@example.com
I want to know how to change my oil in my Lexus GX470. Thanks
