You will probably get double the treadlife with the MS/2 over the Latitudes. If you aren't going to keep the GX for more than 40,000 more miles the 3 Latitudes are probably the way to go.

Michelin LTX MS/2. Long life, great tire all around and you'll find it comes highly recommended.

I believe it's in the steering wheel controls menu. The same place you can turn off the park sensors and enable 2nd gear starts.

I'll look in a bit when I head out.

Figure about $1600 per corner for the shocks. This was part of the reason I got rid of mine, shocks and all the various suspension arms with the bushings can run up over $10,000 if all the bushings...

When we bought or 2014 GX there wasn't one locally so the dealer got one from Wisconsin and had it shipped. We got the price we wanted and negotiated our trade in and they let us drive the trade...

My 07 LS had a sticky driver door switch that would sometimes make the car think the door was still open. The headlights would stay on if using "auto" in the garage overnight and drain my battery....

Not for me either. I will say it doesn't look as bad as I anticipated. The little strip on the fixed rear door glass looks the worst of it all.

Everyone is entitled to make their own choices. Personally, those are all hideous.

The hood is still damaged on the right side of the grille. The park lamps also don't look like they match.

I saw 23 mpg on the display on a 400 mile trip driving 70-78. I think we had a bit of a tailwind helping out too. I didn't hand calculate it so I'm not sure how far off the computer is from the...

I'd definitely be interested in this. The link was broken so I wonder what this would msrp at in the U.S. if it were available. A regular LX at the dealer yesterday was $92k, so this would likely...

I also doubt there's enough support in the roof since it wasn't designed to support a gate.

In addition to the latch not working properly you'd have to change the wiring harness. Not worth it in...

Mine makes the squish noise as well. I believe it is normal on the GX. That said, at first it drove me nuts as I think it sounds like something is wrong. I'm used to it now.

Another vote for the swap to the LTX M/S2s. Ask the dealer service department, I'm sure they can get the tires from their supplier.

I had mine swap all 5 and I think it was around $350. I paid...

Was the switch to rear air suspension on the premium package a mid-year change? My 2014 premium package does not have rear air suspension, I was surprised to see this in this thread.

They came straight from Lexus. Sewell Lexus website probably has an online parts catalog as well as better pricing if you want to do some research.

I think you'd be better off getting a 2014.

I had mine tinted after I took delivery. It actually needs to go back to get the driver's door redone as it peeled at the bottom.

I have the Rain-x washer fluid but haven't noticed it eating wipers.
