There is one factor to keep in mind, as shocks get old, they get less efficient at stopping spring bounce. This produced the boat-like ride. In fact, that's how worn shocks are checked, a car is...

We get these complains from former 2RX owners all the time. Apparently, 2RX used to have softer springs and less aggressive shocks, which resulted in a floating feel that some are accustomed to. ...

The hatch is not closed all the way. Check for obstruction. If the problem persists, you may want to have it checked out. Sounds like your warranty is about to expire. If that is the case, take...

You're looking at about $500 paint job from a body shop. Not much you can do with this type of damage.

One thing you can try is to disconnect the battery for 15 min to see if it clears the code. Paying extra for a CPO may not have been the best idea, considering closest Lexus dealer is 6 hours away.

Ditto! :cry:

I don't recall the last time I used apps in my RX. I use Gasbuddy on my iPhone to check local gas prices rather than paying for the XM service.

With a Toyota vehicle, you don't have to check for metal in the oil filter, even if it is 20 years old. :D

It is possible for a wire loom to be hitting a panel somewhere inside, but again is a pain to diagnose.

Maybe an RX is not a good choice in NZ. Landcruser Prado? Those are awesome on poor pavement.

BTW, have you added mudguards yet? That's one of first mods I did to the RX.

Might be the battery ventilation system running. It sucks in air from under the rear seats to keep the battery cooled.
