I've driven several RXs over the last few years, and the AWD system has never been an issue in the snow. Even my IS does pretty well. The truth is, accelerating is rarely an issue (assuming you stay...

Wierd? Click on the directional icon at the top left, and the display toggles between North at the top of the screen, or the vehicle icon always pointing up. I think you can have it point down, too,...

It really depends on how much you value "peace of mind". Almost any Lexus repair is expensive, but I'm guessing it would take 4 or 5 average issues over the 8 years to make it pay off. Based on the...

You all have good points, and I get it! I'm the one that's a bit odd :egads: I am a bit of a gadget geek, so these things might have an inflated value, to me.

Loaners vs demos

I had my IS at the dealership for a couple of days while they addressed a minor brake issue. While it was there, I was given a CT200h (my request) as a loaner. It had no options that I could find. No...

Cool 2015 price increase?

Does anyone know if there is a price increase for 2015? I'm deciding if I want to wait, so I can get the color, etc exactly as I want them, or if I should take advantage of the year end deals with a...

I was told last night (by a salesman that was not all that knowledgeable in other areas) that prior to the 2014 model year, the F Sport was "badging only", and there were no suspension upgrades. For...

Thank you! Not much new that I would use, so maybe I'll see what I can do with a 2014.

Are you happy with the CT? I'm concerned about the lack of power/acceleration and how well it works in light...

2015 differences?

Does anyone know what changes have been made to the 2015 CT. Looking at a new car, and deciding if I need to wait, or if a good deal on a 2014 is worth doing it now. I can't see anything on the...

Suspension upgrades. Worth it?

On the advice of several folks on this forum, I've decided I'm going to buy my (very low mileage) 2011 AWD IS350 when the lease terminates in a month. I'm now thinking I would like to do something to...

Thank you for the input, everyone. It seems like the consensus is that it really does make more sense to keep the IS. I'll get a quote from the dealer for extending the factory warranty, before I...

I may not have been as clear as I wanted (too many emotions connected to this!).

Sanity check

This is a little embarrassing. I have a 2011 IS350 with the luxury package. 2 years and 10 months into a 3 year lease I'm deciding what to do about a new car. The major issue is that my driving...

If the holes for the bracket are already drilled into the bumper, you pretty much have to put a plate on there to cover them up. Why not just stop by the dealer and have them mount it?

Try a little detailing clay on the chrome below the windows before you wax it. I bet it comes right off. If it's there, it is likely in the paint, too. Claying the car is really a rewarding step in...

If all you're worried about is debris in the oil, why not just put on a new filter and leave the oil alone?

4 Wheel alignment

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that my '11 IS350 wasn't tracking right, so I decided it needed to be aligned. The truth is, it was probably the highway I was on that had lots of seams and was well...

I tend to agree. Mostly, I consider it a novelty, but maybe I would use it more if I didn't have to struggle with the connectivity every time I tried to use it. Or if the app suite was easier to use,...
