Default Does your 2010 IS 250C rattle?

I purchased a new IS250C in late June and over the last few months, the roof has been rattling. Took it into the dealer and the clamp from the roof to the car on the right side was rattling. They fixed that rattle.

Within a week or two the right side of the roof started to rattle again. Took it back. They made some adjustments and got the car back. Within a day or two, the back of the roof started to rattle. Took it back. They found a bolt in the rear roof area loose and tightened it.

The car has been in the shop four times and although it mostly quite, when going over certain bumps and turns, the roof still rattles.

Anyone else have this problem?

This isn't suppose to happen on a Lexus!

Anyway, OP, yes there seem to be a few members with rattles in their IS-C.....but, most of the members were from my.is, not clublexus. Might want to check out the IS-C section on that forum. I (and others) have posted our observations there.

I had a couple of rattles in mine:
1) Coming from the rear package area......fixed by dealer (when I got my car the rear headrest/rollbar cover wouldn't stay connected......that may have been causing the problem....but I mentioned that issue in addition to the rattles near that area)
2) One coming from the passenger side windows.........inevitable in any car that's B-pillar-less, as it's due to the windows touching
3) A "cracking" sound that I heard near the top of the driver's window only when it was left in 90+ sun......but, haven't had that problem cause it hasn't been that hot since I first got it.
4) A new "clunk" type that sounds like it could be coming from my driver's door when I hit a hard bump.....I'm thinking it may be the door moving slightly.....IDK though, maybe once it warms up here and the salt/sand/snow/ice gets off the road I'll do some more research.


Also, I get the occasional roof creek when going over bumps unevenly, etc, but those are also inevitable with convertibles.

I will say though, compared to my mustang convertible that I used to own, the IS is A LOT better.

You have that wrong. If it rattles it's probably a Chrysler or Chevy!

Hopefully they will fix mine and it won't rattle anymore.

Thanks for the reply. I did check out the site you mentioned, my.is and I posted there also. This site seems to get more traffic so I thought I would post here and try to get more feedback.

Gotta disagree with that one. I've had several Chryslers and Ford, and all were vault quiet. My lexus rattles like a Daewoo.

I don't hate the car, I'm just disappointed with QC.
