Default New owner of a certified is250c

I just got a certified is250c last weekend and LOVE the car. It's amazing! I do have a few questions about it that I would love to know if they are normal.

First is I noticed I roll up the front windows when I turn the car off but not the small back ones. The car must be on for them to roll up. Is that normal?

The second thing is it came with a wind screen. Is it suppose to clip into anything under the back head rests? It has the pivoting piece that fits under the headrests but it doesn't have anything to clip into or secure it to the headrests. Should it?

The third thing is the trunk is pretty heard to open up. I need both hand and to really push (I'm short) so is that normal? It's much much harder than my old car.

Lastly, I noticed it had a shake/vibration when was driving it home and braked on a pretty steep hill. I haven't been able to reproduce that as I haven't found a road that I can go fast enough and break on.

I'd love to hear from isc owners to know if these things are normal. I love the car!

Congrats on your purchase! Any pics?

The car can be in accessory mode and roll the windows up. Press the push to start once, then press int again. You should be able to roll them up.

Here is a helpful link on the windscreen:
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-c...l-is-this.html

The trunk is super heavy. It is really reinforced and has some hard top components in it. There is a little handle on the right on the inside that helps you close it and push it up.

As for the vibration, if I ever get it, I just leave my top down for a few hours to let all the seals puff back up and make sure the top is aligned right. I also take it down at least once a month to make sure it's all working smoothly.

Hope that helps! Enjoy your new car!

Thank you for the insight! That thread you linked is actually what got me thinking that my windscreen is missing a piece. I might head down to my local dealership and see what they say.

Congrats on the new car, you will love it. The window thing is normal. I use the button next to the top down button to roll down or up all of the windows at once. Down is one touch but up you have to hold till they are up. The trunk is heavy but the gas struts should make it pretty easy. Have the dealer check the struts they should have done that since it is certified. The brakes might mean slight warp of rotors, get up to highway speed and put the brakes on, try both light pressure and then heavy pressure to see if there is any vibration or steering wheel wobble. I can't help with the wind screen, I don't have one.
My top is down whenever the sun is out and the temp is at least 52 deg. Have fun and enjoy. If you have any more questions ask away.
Jeff

I can't comment really if these things are "normal" or not as I am a new owner too. However, I did want to say congratulations on your new purchase!
