Hi I am new to the Forums and a new Lexus owner.
I just got a beautiful Lexus IS250 2006, here are some pics:
As much as I love my car there is a slight problem with it. I bought it used from the dealership here in Iceland and as soon as winter hit here I noticed that the heating in the car seems to not be working properly.
I live in a small town so usually when I'm going somewhere I'm taking at least a 20 min drive to downtown Reykjavik so the car has ample time to heat up. It's just a straight road with no stopping lights until you've driven for at least 15 min.
But the car takes at least 20 min just to get the heating to somewhat warm, and up to 30 min until heating is really hot and toasty. The same goes for the heating in the seats.
I've taken the car to the Lexus dealership and they changed the thermostat. That helped somewhat but not enough in my opinion.
Is there anything else that I can have them take a look at ?
I just find this really strange since I have a 99 Toyota that is very warm and toasty after 10 min max and the same went for the previous Accord that I owned. The heat in the seats and the heating were really hot after max 10-15 min.
