Default LS430 to the 460

Hi all,

I just made the transition from a 2006 LS430 to a 2010 LS460 AWD. Any quirks I need to know about??

Mechanically? Not really. You will hear a bit of engine ticking from the direct injection.

1. Read about wind noise. The modification with the 2013+ fins seems to be uniformly "it's better or about the same." No one has ever had worse outcomes (more noise after the fix).

It seems like the 2010+ LS460 has largely been problem free (some glitches with 07-09 cars have been reported here on Club Lexus).

2. 0W-20 engine oil should be used.

Or 5W-20 as per the oil cap and manual.

Could be...but it also could be control arm bushings, which are a common problem on these vehicles. This used to be a very expensive fix for the LS, but you can now get bushings on Ebay for very little money.
