I thought it was just me.

Over the years, the dealership has provided us with several RXs as service loaners. Although I always hated how the vehicle looked I loved the ride. A few days ago, I...

Shortly after having the motor in my 2007 IS250 replaced, I started experiencing a similar issue. Then one day every light in the dash lit up and the car would barely move. The dealer said that one...

My first Lexus (2001 IS300) was a Lexus CPO. It was nice to get every little thing repaired/replaced for the first 3 years that I drove it. I think that experience endeared me to the Lexus brand. ...

Bad case of audio system envy

Three weeks ago I picked up a 2013 Audi A5 for the wife. It came equipped with the MMI Navigation and a 505W sound system. I took over the '07 IS250 with Nav (but not ML) that she'd been driving. ...

Much to my (pleasant) surprise, I opened up my mailbox today and inside there was a refund check for the full amount of the dash replacement!

I got my letter in January. Unfortunately it came more than a year after I'd already paid $1100 to have the dash replaced. The letter states that I "might" be eligible for reimbursement. For...

It's not the warm weather. The panels made after 08-09 are fine. I've come across a few Maserati owners who have the same complaint about 00-06 models of their cars.

$7000 later I got my car back. I paid $4200 and the rest by the warranty company (MAP-EFG). So, I guess for a $2500 expense, the warranty has more than paid for itself and I still have 24,000 miles...

They do cover the engine. However, if you actually read the contract (as I didn't), it states "may include the use of new, remanufactured or used parts as determined by us". Since I only paid $2500...

2007 IS250 Engine Rattle/Tick

I have a 2007 IS250 with just under 100K miles. Not long ago, I started hearing a tick/rattle sound at idle but, only after the car was warmed up. Eventually, I'd also hear it while operating the...

Mine was the bulb as well. After having it changed, it's worked like a charm ever since. I notice this issue on a lot of cars that are around the same age as mine. Maybe this generation of HID...

I must admit that I've been really surprised and disappointed at Lexus' response to this. I bought a 2nd Lexus because my first one ('01 IS300) was such a great experience. It's bad enough that...

Farewell to the best car I ever owned

I just sold me first Lexus, a 2001 IS300, blue. I got it in the summer of 2003 and we've been rolling strong ever since. I loved this car. In over 10 years there was only one occasion where I...

I just sold my 01 IS300 with 207k miles this past weekend. The motor was still strong, but the suspension was worn and I'd just been quoted about $2200 to change out all the...
