I know, i always do that too. But when i valet park the car i use the push button trunk lock (inside the glove), then lock the glove so that Valet can't open the trunk (i keep work related documents and sometimes my laptop and stuff in there)

Look underneath, the push button to open the trunk is all the way on the right vs. the key hole is all the way on the left.

If you take off the cover next to the door handle you can roll the windows back up and close the sunroof.....awesome.

That my 2010 AWD Lux Nav has illuminated door sills.

Only works when you have your interior lights to come on when you open your doors!

My VSC light came on yesterday so I went and disconnected the negative terminal and then reconnected. VSC light went off....but what now from the drivers seat i can not open the friggin windows. Soi what you have to do is roll the windows down from that specific door halfway(not automatic) and roll them back up and hold at the top position for a sec. Then test from the driver seat that it has been reset. That was kinda cool bc no fuses were blown and I was fixin to go to the dealer......

People won't shut-up about the grab (oh *****) handles above the windows. Finally pulled on one, and they do have a pretty cool double-action movement to them. +1 for Lexus I guess

for the 2011 model iSx50s, can u hold the key fob's unlock button for a few seconds which would lead to the rolling down of all 4 windows and open up the moonroof at the same time? i kno this can be done on the '08 model. idk if it would work for the other year's models.

It is turned off on 2011's by default, but it can be enabled in the vehicle's options.
