Most reported Lexus problems
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.
A seat position sensor fault code, B1153 may be set. Our technicians tell us a revised wire harness is available which should correct this concern.
The supplemental restraints system (SRS) warning light may illuminate with code B0111 and/or B0116. Our technicians tell us Lexus has several service bulletins regarding the SRS system. It is not uncommon to replace one or more airbags to correct these fault codes.
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.
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.
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.
The electric trunk release may not function correctly. Our technicians tell us an additional ground wire can be added which should correct this concern.
A squeak type noise may be noted from one or both front seats. Squeaks can be caused by contact between the seat track locating pins and the vehicle floor pan. Our technicians tell us the repair involves removing some of the seat locating pins.
