Sheared off plastic screws in rear license plate

Guys, I am in a bit of a pickle. I removed my rear license plate from my car last night, and in doing so I sheared off the plastic screws in the holes (yes, the screws were plastic and not metal, no...

Yeah, you should probably review the list of exclusions. My 2006 GS430 is a CPO car. So far, the warranty has paid for the replacement of all 4 rear bumper sensors (about $1,000 parts and labor)...

I feel exactly the same way. I'm 46, my wife is 44, and we've owned many cars over the years. My last car, a 99 GS400, was 13 years old when I traded it in. The doors opened and closed like the...

2006 GS430 with 84k miles. Out of nowhere, this just happened to my rear passenger door. My car is CPO, but I just read that hinges are not covered. WTH? Let me make sure I understand this. The...

Just read this. If the hinges are excluded, that will be very disappointing. I get the fact that technically it's a body part, but jeez, in order for me and my passengers to use my car, we need to...

Thanks drydeniv.

I went out to the garage tonight to wipe down the wheels and see if I could bring out the shine. Well, no such luck. The wheels are a little rough/scratchy to the touch. It's...

Agreed that people are careless. But the dealership tried to make good on it by refinishing the rims, and I really do appreciate that. Moreover, the guy did a good job in terms of fixing the...

Rims refinished -- results are blah

Hey guys. Opinion needed. I had my Lexus dealership install new tires on my car a few months ago. The rims were scratched up pretty badly during the installation (not just on the edge, but on the...

Well, I changed the brake fluid at 60k miles, and I had the front pads and rotors changed last year. They inspected the rear brakes, but I guess they never lubricated the slider pins?

Thanks 3zero3.

I received a call back a little while ago from Lexus. The calipers are covered under CPO, which was great to hear. The pads, of course, are not covered, which is to be expected.

2006 GS430 -- rear brake calipers seized? CPO?

Hey guys. 2006 GS430, CPO warranty for another year or so.

My car is at the dealership now for an oil change. I got a call that I need new rear brakes (they are down to 3mm). However, they...

I wasn't in the market for a new car. I love my 430. It's a great car, a fast car, and it's in impeccable condition. Moreover, it's CPO and still under warranty for another year or 16,000 miles,...

Honestly, at this point, that would be the only reason to get it. And, I'm not saying that it's a bad reason. I learned today that the 460 most likely needs brakes all around. That's at least...

My 430 is silver on black. The 460 is charcoal gray in black. Both are acceptable colors to me but I prefer silver.

It's a good thought, but I don't think so. My 430 is a 2006 MY, April 2005 build date. I think the issue is that people are trying to change the cabin air filter with their car running.

57,000 miles. It's the sales tax issue that's skewing the numbers to the tune of about $3,000 or more when you consider that I'm not getting any tax credit on mine.

Correct. It doesn't take a lot of force and yes, terrible design. The seller says he thinks it's still working because he can hear it click when he puts it on recirc. My guess is that that is an...
