It's hard to see the button that even opens it, but once you're used to it it holds lots of change!

Has anyone report leaks inside the vehicle? I just noticed on the passengers side, under the glove box water leaking from the rain...

Its not from the rain. Its from the HVAC blower motor. There is a TSB for this.

Hope this makes you feel better.

So far, I hear loud windnoise coming from sunroof when driving 65+ mph with sunshade open, but would be silent once the sunshade is closed. However, I have not experienced any windnoise from driver side yet.

I kind of notice that sometimes the auto-dimming outside mirrors do not really dim, i.e. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Please let me know if you guys experience the same thing. However, the inside rearview mirror dims fine.

I do agree that Lexus did skimp us on Power Folding MIrrors and the Power Trunk Opener/Closer. I got pretty irritated by that. But, oh wells, I still like the car's performance and style.

Also, are there any other official TSBs that were released by Lexus, like the link provided above for the HVAC Blower Motor? I want to gather a whole list and bring to dealer to fix if such problems apply.

Default Questions / Complaints / Suggestions.

I love my GS350 but their are a few things I don't quiet understand perhaps some of you might help.
1) Their is a button above the ceiling near the lights button and sunroof button it is a picture of the car and mirrors what is it for?
2) Drivers side visor has a vent looking thing on it what is it for?
3) I have a blackberry 9800 and not upgrading any time soon is their any other way for me to get enform in the car - I want my yelp lol.
____________________________________________________________________________
My one Complaint
Why is their no compartment above head for my sunglasses - ?
But hey if thats my only complaint those has to be one heck of a car
____________________________________________________________________________
Suggestion
I hate the fact that from the front, the ES & GS look almost identical - considering the GS is 20k more, really dont like that.

That toggles on and off if the lights come on when a door is opened. If you press that button in, the lights will come on inside when a door is opened. If its not set in, they won't.

Its for sticking your parking card or your garage ticket in

No other option. You need a smartphone that the app can be downloaded onto.

Thats a question for the ages that all of us have asked already, loudly

Unfortunately...thats what comes from having a "family look". I personally don't think they look that similar, but driving down the street with the DRLs on you do have to look a second to tell which one it is. Sitting in a parking lot though a GS is clearly a GS and an ES is clearly an ES to me.

Thats true of every brand though...BMW...Audi...MB....Cadillac...if you know the brand you can tell but ask somebody off the street and they don't know.

Yeah, I concur. The easiest way for me to tell the difference is to look at the exhaust. From the side or from the front however, it's difficult for me to tell them apart. I, too, wish there were more stylistic differences between these 2 models.

Try telling the A4/A6 or XTS/CTS/ATS apart from the front.

Can you really not see any differences except the exhaust?!? I totally don't get that.
