You're right, it's not "free", but the cost of loaners is built into the higher labour and parts cost you may pay (over a Toyota dealership), so everyone collectively pays for loaners every time they...

The Toyota 3.0L engine did come with 2 different firing orders, but most after 97 used the same firing order as the current engines.

Now that said, I am surprised that you would find the current...

I have that noise too, usually noticeable backing out of my garage in the morning because of the echo off the walls. That's more of a light "thunk", bordering on "clunk" rather than a "tick" noise....

I have a similar issue, although I wouldn't describe it as a "click" though, more like a "tick" sound. When I first noticed it last spring, it was very noticeable coming to a stop or accelerating...

I'm going to suggest you may potentially be seeing the results of the engine not sensing enough air, but due to extreme heat and elevation. I checked the weather for your area, 37C and 17% humidity....

The missing part of the magic is what is the generating capacity of the MG1 motor, typically referred to as the generator. The generator creates a load on the engine, but it never sucks up the full...

The hybrid is not an add-on system, it is THE system, so there is no "normal mode" to switch to. But whether a problem disables the vehicle, well, like problems with a conventional car, a problem...

Doesn't sound at all like a remote battery issue. Seems more like an internal electrical issue.

Vehicle speed is also a factor in the wiper auto speed. It may be harder to encourage a faster wiper speed while sitting still.

I'd have to say there are plenty of poor design issues with Lexus and lit buttons, but I can't say this is one of them. The enter button is a thumb button, if your hand is on the remote your thumb...

The picture you see is after I pulled the metal out, but it didn't lose any air. This morning the tire was still inflated to it's normal psi. I drove it gently for about 20 minutes to tire store with...

I can't think of any reason why a 10/11 would cost upwards of $10,000 for another 3 or 4 years. If you're just planning to add 20,000 miles during that time, even the maintenance costs would not be...

OK, done. Wasn't as hard as I feared. Completed the task "almost" without any tools.

Nice, I've never been a fan of the ultra low profile bicycle tire look in general, but I like your setup. As a bonus, they look like easy rims to clean!

My only complaint, no wiper blade. Backing up in the rain, 1 droplet obscures most of the view.
