A clicking type noise may be noted from the rear of the vehicle while driving. Our technicians tell us that revised rear coil springs are available which may 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.
Poor quality low speed transmission shifting may be noted. Our technicians tell us updated transmission software is available which may correct this concern.
The air conditioning light may flash or an AC error message may be displayed. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a fault with the AC amplifier, as revised part is available to correct this concern.
The front suspension might make noise when going over bumps or rough roads. The support bushing for the suspension commonly needs to be replaced to correct this concern.
Sludge can build up in the engine because Lexus did not recommend frequent enough oil changes. Lexus will sometimes offer a discount on cleaning the engine if necessary. Owners who changed their oil every 3,000 miles did not experience these problems. This sludge build up can lead to excessive oil consumption.
A vibration may be noted in the brake pedal or steering wheel when the brakes are applied. This is commonly caused by warped front brake rotors. The affected rotors must be re-machined or replaced to correct this concern.
An intermittent no start condition may be caused by a failed "Push Start" switch. Replacing the failed switch should correct this concern.
A creaking type noise may develop from the front suspension when driving over uneven road surfaces. Our technicians recommend inspection of the front sway bar bushings for deterioration and related hardware for correct tightness.
An abnormal noise may be noted from the steering column. Our technicians tell us this may be due to insufficient strength of the telescoping steering column cable, a redesigned cable has been made available to correct this concern.
Various user interface issues regarding GPS, radio system, and heater controls, along with bluetooth operation have been addressed with a software upgrade. Our technicians recommend that if you have issues with these systems, checking for the latest software should be the first step in diagnoses.
