Axle nuts or bolts, whatever they call 'em. I had the same problem. I heard a click on both acceleration and braking, from the right front. I asked the dealer to tighten the thingamajigs and, voila...

The "click" is gone!

vlad_a, I took my RX450h back to the Monterey dealer this past week and asked them to check the left-front axle nut. Though the service adviser said the design of the axle nut in the RX is not the...

I think I've got it!

Yesterday I took my RX450h to an excellent independent shop (recommended by a relative and highly praised on Yelp!) to see if they could figure out the source of the clicking noise which they agreed...

As I've mentioned before, I'd planned to wait for the NX300h before upgrading from my '07 RAV4. But then I found this CPO RX450h with only 15,000 miles on it at a very fair price. It was just too...

I am presently averaging better than 28 mpg (measured at the pump) with our 2010 RX450h. I got 30.8 mpg on my last tank of gas -- with around 85% highway miles at 62-65 mph. I would probably be...

Well, at least this car makes a long trip easy on the body, nerves and mind. That sounds like a great trip. I've always wanted to visit those places. We're pretty much done with Europe, so it's about...

The sound is coming from under the car, left front

It happens after I've been driving at residential-street speeds for awhile, when I brake and when I accelerate away from lights or stop signs (starting from 0 mph). I'm guessing this has something to...

31 mpg!

I hit a new gas-mileage milestone with my most recent fill-up (or "Fuelup") yesterday: 31 mpg. This was over a distance of 243 miles, mostly on freeways between our house on the coast and...

Tire replacement, looking ahead

The tires on our 2010 AWD RXh have 20,000 miles on them. They are 19-inch high-performance Michelins. I hope they have another 20K miles in them, but I read that high-performance tires don't last as...

I took the car in to the dealer (40 miles away) yesterday, and of course, the car would not make the funny sound when a technician when for a ride-along with me. Figures.

My car makes a funny sound

My 2010 RX 450h makes an odd noise when I accelerate and when I brake; not all the time, but often enough to make me wonder what if anything is going on. This noise sounds most like a quick, light...

Our car had 15,000 miles on it when we bought it in mid-November, and we've put 5,000 on it since then. You're already getting pretty much what we get on road trips in the way of fuel economy.
