Hello all.... The trunk button on the back of my 07 ls460l seems to have "melted" in the South Florida heat. It is now a stcky black patch that feels gross when opening the trunk. I'm gonna have it looked at/replaced soon.
Has anyone out there encountered a similar problem?

Wow, I have an 07 in Miami but havent had that problem as of yet. Sounds weird though. There are many more exterior plastic parts on the LS that would have experienced the same issue as the button if the heat was the issue. One example would be the plastic piece that the rear camera is mounted on.
I live in North TX and I have a 2007 LS460. It has the "gummy" trunk button too. It has been that way for a couple of years. I am fairly confident that it was not caused by exposure to some chemical as I am the only one who washes it. Nothing comes off on my fingers and it seems to be better in the Winter. None of the other parts on my car are exhibiting any unusual texture change or tackiness.
Thanks, At least I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with the issue -- freakish, strange thing. Every time i open the trunk from the back it is like pressing into chewed up gum... eeeeek.
Can't wait to get it changed, i wonder what the service rep will tell me... They always make subtle suggestions that the car is fine and the owner messed it up.. Probrably true sometimes but annoying none-the-less....
I see Microsoft mouses develop that same issue indoors. Not sure what causes it. Don't think it's heat.
