The OP's issue is identical to a number of other AWD owners, including myself. I had this problem in a 2009 and Lexus bought it back. I bought a new 2011 AWD that initially did not have the issue...

We get a fair amount of rain here so I stow umbrellas (the short collapsible kind) in each of the back seat door wells. This also reduces the chance that passengers will forget items they left in...

I have AWD but I firmly believe that winter tires make the biggest difference. Compared to my LS430 I think the 460 handles much better.

I would not hesitate to drive a 460 in the winter with...
