I have had new tires installed at Big O several times on our TPM vehicles and never once have I been charged for new gaskets, at least not to my knowledge.

Good luck with the Bridgestones. They...

I searched Tire Rack and learned that your tire has since been renamed "Crugen Premium." It's the same tire -- same materials and tread -- as the City Venture. There are some reviews from Tire Rack...

I drove about 100 miles today on the new Michelin Premier LTX tires. They are much smoother and quieter inflated to 36 PSI (cold), which I noticed works out to 40 PSI when the tires are warm/hot....

I hadn't thought of buying tires through my Lexus dealer, but on the other hand, the dealership is about 40 miles from our house in Monterey. There is no Lexus dealership here in Santa Cruz County....

Anita, I am reporting back as directed. I did "play" with the pressure; I increased it and the ride is actually smoother now. I had asked the guys at Big O to set the tire pressure at 35 psi. But I...

I just got Michelin Premier LTXs to replace the OEM Michelin Radial Xs that came with the almost-new 2010 RX 450h I bought in Nov. 2013 with just under 15 k on the odometer. I probably could've...

Where are you that premium is 100 octane and regular is 94? Our regular is 89 octane and our premium is 94, I think. Mid-grade is 91, I believe. In any case, I've never seen a pump here in Central...

I have used premium fuel all along on the theory that it's probably better for this engine, that is if you accept the manufacturer's recommended fuel for the hybrid. I don't understand why the V6 in...

I pulse and glide all the time. I also keep the car in eco mode and keep an eye on predicted mpg at fuel up and the energy screen, which shows me when I'm on electric, electric and ICE or ICE only. I...

I don't know as I see much difference in mpg yet with ECO mode turned on now, however the NAV "energy display" seems to indicate that the car is running on the battery more often.

I was inadvertently driving without the eco mode turned on for a long time and averaging better than 28 mpg, per Fuelly. Last week I realized this and turned it on. I'm interested to see if it makes...

The RX 450h does best mpg-wise after the ICE warms up. At which point, ironically sort of, it will shut down more readily at slow speeds and let the EV take over. Short trips are hell on mpg in a...

Bert,
Thanks for devoting so much time to replying to me. Coincidentally, I will be at the dealer this afternoon for a NAV update and I'll ask them about it then.

How smart is my Lexus?

I have seen references here to the RX 450h's ability to adjust to your personal driving style, to help you maximize your MPG. Can anybody explain it that's true and, if so, how the car does it?

StillLine, Can you get the Fuelly banners working right on this site? They're supposed to update on their own. Or do you just post a new link to your banner each time you add a "fuel-up"?

If you're getting 29 with ups and downs, you're doing very well. That's a big improvement over your 350's mpg. The dealer probably filled your tank with premium gas, which is what the owner's manual...

Among other things, they performed a brake flush and refilled with new brake fluid and replaced the rear differential oil. Since the leak is at the rear, I'm guessing it's differential fluid.
