HS audio vs Highlander JBL system

So I got to spend some time driving my wife's new Highlander Limited this weekend (alone - so I could play my music). After getting back into my HS, I have newfound appreciation for the base audio...

I think people are keeping their HS longer partly due to the lower resale value once it was discontinued. But yes it is a really good car, assuming you're OK with the oddities of a hybrid drive...

I don't think an IS300h would make a good Uber car. Back seat too tight for adults. One reason I chose the HS over the IS 6 years ago.

Gah! My first door dings

Well I had 6 years of ding-free joy, but this weekend I got not one but two door dings! Not sure but I think both occurred in the airport parking deck where my ride was parked over the weekend. ...

It's depreciated pretty quickly after they pulled it off the market. But i'm betting it won't depreciate more than normal after this. It's still a Lexus, still has great reliability, styling,...

so sounds like mine may be due soon too - over 6 years old and nearly 90k. But it gives you some warning like a lead-acid battery - gets weak, engine starts slower, etc?

Sorry if I wasn't clear - I meant are you sure Lexus was quoting $866 just for the 90k services in the book, or did they include other things beyond what the book says?

time to replace 12v battery?

So how long are the gel starter batteries lasting? Mine is now 6 years old, and isn't showing signs of weakness yet. I'm used to lead-acid batteries lasting about 5 years and then dying like...

Are you sure they are only quoting the 90K service? My Honda dealer routinely tacks on other stuff not in the book like wheel alignments and fluid flushes, unless you tell them not to. Maybe they...

Sorry I wasn't clear. I don't think my actual mpg changed at all, as my hand calculations show it didn't. So I'm wondering why/how the fuel injector cleaner messed up my computer? Did it maybe do...

Fuel injector cleaner messes up MPG computer?

I used some STP fuel injector cleaner (yeah, not the best, but it's what the hardware store had when I thought of it) a few tanks ago, and my indicated mpg went from my normal 36-37 mpg to 38-39! I...

Good to know. I recall they topped off my tank with every recall, as a way of compensating me for having to take the car in. Maybe it's just my dealer? Though I think others mentioned it too with...

My Lexus dealer will charge me for services done, so for example if I just had the tires rotated (or they are new) then they don't charge me that part of the service. did you ask them what they...

I don't feel the HS is bad at all cruising on the highway, even doing 80. At least, with the right tires. Where I notice the unrefined nature of the drive train is under acceleration - the engine...

I don't recall the 60K service being huge - maybe a couple hundred bucks, as I had the filters replaced.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that. IMO, ask the people waiting in the Lexus service area if their car is FWD or RWD, I'll bet less than half have a clue. I just think the average car...

Smacks a bit of RWD snobbery :-) I'd agree for race track use, but the average driver, especially Lexus owners, would much more likely notice the difference between how the ES and HS feels than the...
