Thanks a lot, now the song is stuck in my head.

Go see Tim Lucas if you're in west suburbs and tell him Joe with the GS460 sent you. He is a great guy and will take care of you.

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?

Thanks

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.

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.

Can I also get some recommendations on a good mechanic? In the BMW community A&L in Palatine is widely recommended but they specialize in bimmers.

Is there a shop like that for Lexus in the Chicagoland area? Job needed done are:

brakes, rotors, rear main engine seal by bell housing, power steering and AC belt, and timing belt. Quoted about 3600 at Mcgrath so I'm looking if the community has an independent that is recommended.

thanks!
Eric
