I have over 176K miles on my 2007 and have replaced the brake pads twice. So I've found the Toyota stock pads to be awesome for wear.

The transmission flair (between 3-4 when cold) is something to check for, and also make...

TerryTunder, I have over 176k miles on my '07. I would recommend you change all the fluids, though, strictly speaking, you don't need to change the ATF which is lifetime. I just didn't want to trust...

i suspect it could be a dealer-customizable setting, but don't know for sure. You're correct that it isn't a setting you can change via the console.

I've owned my 2007 since buying it new July 2006. This is the first time I've heard of checks to ES350 owners. Obviously, no money for me so far.

I don't know about your options and I think fraud was likely in hiding the damage. However, your CPO warranty stands no matter what. It IS warrantied as a CPO vehicle and Lexus has to honor that. ...

I'm agreeing with old grump here, you're being way too anal about this. The 6.4 quarts is a target and not an absolute requirement. A dipstick check is not a precise measurement. Draining the oil...

My Toyota and Lexus dealers refused to do a transmission flush - refused my money. So I did it myself. Although I've had no problems, I agree that no oil lasts forever.

Any oil will do. They're that good now. I use Mobil 1.

The difference in mileage is irrelevant. I personally like the nav and wouldn't buy a car without it, though my 2007 software is a bit dated.
