She just doesnt take care of her car.
The front seat is loaded with clothed, there is gum smashed into the rear carpet from the kids, chips and cookie cumbs in the rear seats, candy wrappers and trash in the 2nd row and tossed into the rear.....just not how I take care of my car. She did this with her '05 and I made her drive a truck I had to haul at the time....a lifted (really big) 1 ton crew cab dually. Needless to say, she wanted her car back and kept it clean for a while after that...hahaha
No accident, but thank you for the concern...

Thanks for the explanation.

A mom with small children, she has a big responsibility, cut her some slack. Sorry, for butting in.
I know a few young mothers with small children and the inside of their SUV is like a war zone. Candy wrappers, sticky fingers touch everything not to mention spilling fruit juice.

Every 8 weeks more or less I get my LX detailed, with my big four legged kids it get dirty pretty fast.

The lack of room in the back is a road block for me in purchasing the LX570.
I just need the extra space for my large Rottweilers.

BTW, tomorrow I am getting a set of Michelin's Latitude Tour HP for my LX470 from my Lexus dealer size 275X60X18, finally I'll be able to get rid off the Dunlops.
Which BK do you want to meat at! I will be buying YOU lunch, Wendys is good too!

While I determined that you could likely remove the seats, it involved a little more than I wanted to get into. Hopefully they will come out with a LX570L for people who do not want the 3rd row. For the trouble it would cause to remove the seats, for me it would be worth just letting them stay in the tucked position. Likely for safety reasons the seats are well attached to the device that move them.

I was hoping to buy you lunch instead.

My salesman at Lexus of Melbourne says that is possible, he just needs to do more research including the service manager. Not all is loss, yet.

I hear ya....still....
Just want to keep a nice car nice.
Right now (this very moment) nobody can sit in the front seat because of all the "stuff" on the seat/floor. It's been there all week.haha

The new GX's third row with, a similar rear suspension to the LX, folds flat. THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! I don't care that it may be a smaller cargo area. That fact that they fold flat proves that it can be done and I would think this will be what the LX migrates toward.

I test drove the GX460 and LX570 yesterday back-to-back. The 3rd row in the GX is a huge compromise on cargo space. The fold flat seating raises the floor 3 inches and it's very apparent seeing it. I would prefer the side folding seats in the LX, but with a way to manually remove them.

I was looking into having the dealer remove the 3rd row seats in my 2010 LX 570. He said he could do it. I was then going to try and purchase a cargo liner that would cover the entire area back there including covering up the electronic plug ins. Has anybody done this successfully?

There is a thread on this forum about removing the seats. Seems like it takes maybe an hour to do at home. Search "3rd row removal"
