In the same boat - looking for a good, reliable, independent lexus mechanic that can do brakes, maintenance, etc. Also, had an issue with the dealership telling me the Y exhaust pipe is not covered by the warranty (has a small leak) - does anyone have the lexus corporate number where i can call and make an argument as to why it should be covered?
No I don't, would really appreciate his info though. Also, spoke today to a rep at lexus corporate regarding the leak on my Y pipe - was told someone was going to follow up with me in a day or two to see what they can do for me. The rep sounded optimistic on the phone, keeping my fingers crossed.
So, are you guys suggesting that I should just suck it up and have a dealer perform the service? Or, if I use an independent place just have them install new rotors and not trust them to resurface the current ones? I'm still hoping to get advice about where to take my vehicle.
FWIW.. my cousin has been buying lexus since they first came out in '89 ... Just got my first one
a couple years ago. He specifically told me he had brake work done at dealership although
he has other work done elsewhere.
Hope this isn't a dead thread as I need whatever info any here may have or were given about a good independent shop to do Lexus work in the Chicago suburbs, preferably West suburbs. Just purchased a 2003 LS 430 and would like someone to look over and make sure there are no issues that I need to know about. Particularly have engine noise/sound that doesn't sound normal to me but I'm not sure what IS normal. Thanks.
Guys just bought another GS4 but it needs some major TLC....Looking to see if there is anyone on here who would come by my house to take a look at it to at least give me an idea on where to start...Right now the shifter will not move from Park for some reason....It just started with this issue...I would be willing to pay u for your time....Any help would be great....Thanks
