Lexus LS460 Problems

Clicking/Knocking Sound From the Brake Actuator

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.

Navigation Errors and Multi-Cluster Display Screen may Remain Blank

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.

A knocking May be Noted From the Engine Under Certain Conditions

A knocking sound may be heard at idle, when the air conditioning is off and the automatic transmission is in "Drive". Several changes have been made to improve this; a computer software upgrade, revised valve lash adjusters, and a redesigned timing chain are all available to try and correct this concern.

Potential Fuel Leak

Due to the remnants of anti-corrosion plating, a fuel leak may develop from where the fuel pressure sensor is attached to the fuel delivery pipe. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will clean and reseal the area of the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern.

 

Toyota Recalls 2006–2008 Lexus Models Due to Possible Engine Problems

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.

Steering Wheel May Become Off-Center

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.

Great car!
Bought my 2009 LS 460 new and still own it. I'm extremely pleased with it. I have not had a single repair and only routine maintenance since I've owned it. Amazing car - it's certainly not sporty but it is extremely luxurious, comfortable and surprisingly fast as well.
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 fr...
