Default Cargo Tonneau Cover?

I just bought a 09 RX350 Pebble Beach last weekend. I noticed that it did not have the cargo tonneau cover. I should have complained about it to the dealership, but I didn't. Can some one tell me the real name for this part and where I could buy one?

Why not ask the dealer to get you one? Do not be shy. I am sure they will get you one. Did you purchase this from a Lexus dealer?

do you have a certain period under law in your state where you can return a vehicle?

if so, or if you're under a similiar type contract with the dealer, demand they throw one in or you'll return the vehicle and void the sell

i bought a 09 recently and demanded a cover, they said they have several laying around that come in and out of trade-ins all year round. took them 5 minutes to go grab one out of parts and another 3 minutes to install it.

I should have done that, but I didn't. I'll just buy one somewhere.

I purchased mine on ebay for about 1/4 of the dealer's price. Just be sure that you find one with the correct size clips for the headrest posts. The
size differs for RXs made in Japan and Canada.

They are not cheap. Ask the dealer to put one in. The vehicle came with one new and it should be there when sold as used.

Some dealerships now issue a certificate, with bold text ..
"What we owe you" at the time of sale.

You have probably done this but did you check the storage area at the rear of the cargo area ? This is where the cover is stored when not in use.

Underneath the cargo mat is the storage area and place for the cover.

Bluesjam,

If you don't have the cover in the trunk area under the mat, go back to the dealer and ask "Where's my tonn. cover? It's not in the storage compartment made specifically for the cover and it's a standard feature of the vehicle."
