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.

Lexus LS460 Problems
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.
An intermittent no start condition may be caused by a failed "Push Start" switch. Replacing the failed switch should correct this concern.
The inside rear view mirror may become discolored or difficult to see clearly from. A revised mirror is available to correct this concern.
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.

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.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
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.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
A programming change to the variable gear ratio steering (VGRS) system can cause improper activation of the steering system protection logic, which is designed to protect the steering system when larger than normal inputs are applied when the wheel is fully turned. Improper activation of the protection system can cause the steering wheel to become off centered up to 90 degrees. This can happen if the steering wheel is fully turned and then quickly turned back to center. If the steering wheel unexpectedly becomes off center while driving, the risk of a crash is increased. Dealers will replace the steering control ECU free of charge. The recall began on July 12, 2010.

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????
car worked pretty good for 4 yrs. yesterday, was driving south on I75 in Florida. all of a sudden radio shut off and annoying mechanical chirping noise started. Cannot turn it off or down. sound system no longer works. was close to a toyota dealer so pulled in and spoke with service. couldn't do anything right then and was told to bring it back tues. morn. and that it would probably be expensive to fix. has anyone had this problem? how was it resolved?
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.
