Default LFA 461 has arrived, battery question.

Hey gang,

My LFA has arrived in Toronto. I will be sharing some pics soon, but first I have a question regarding the battery. Is it best to leave it on the trickle charger every night? I am making my way through the owner's manual, but it doesn't seem to say definitively yes or no.

Thanks in advance.

I would say treat it as a normal battery, if you're going longer than 1 or 2 weeks of not driving it, charge it.

I think your dealership would give you that information though.

Congrats on your new LFA!

Definitely not every night. I believe the owner's manual or perhaps one of the instructional videos mentions the time period of not running the car (IIRC several weeks) when disconnecting the battery is recommended.

Thanks, guys, for the responses. Here are some pics of the car, before it was shipped to me from Calgary. Will post more pics and some initial driving impressions later, just busy with work at the moment plus getting emissions/inspection for license plates.

Well from one Lexus owner to another in the GTA congrats on the sick ride. The colour combo is killer as well. Hope to see it in person one day.


I've seen the Red LFA at Erin Park Lexus many times and the owner is a great guy who appreciates his car to no end. Happy motoring!

Is the owner of that Red Lexus in Erin Park Lexus still the one who is related to the Lexus dealership ?

I'm not 100% sure on the family relationship but the car is stored every winter in the showroom at Erin Park. When they have F Sport events the LFA is always front and centre.
