$7000 later I got my car back. I paid $4200 and the rest by the warranty company (MAP-EFG). So, I guess for a $2500 expense, the warranty has more than paid for itself and I still have 24,000 miles...

They do cover the engine. However, if you actually read the contract (as I didn't), it states "may include the use of new, remanufactured or used parts as determined by us". Since I only paid $2500...

Sterling McCall and the warranty company have agreed that I need a new engine ($5920 + labor). The warranty company only wants to pay for a used engine ($2420 + labor). SML will only install a new...

Sterling McCall just informed me that the problem is a "rod bearing failure". The inspector for the warranty company (MAP-EFG) will come out to check it out and decide whether or not they'll cover...

2007 IS250 Engine Rattle/Tick

I have a 2007 IS250 with just under 100K miles. Not long ago, I started hearing a tick/rattle sound at idle but, only after the car was warmed up. Eventually, I'd also hear it while operating the...

I definitely plan to do something about it. When I buy another car in September, it's going to be a different brand!!! My attitude is that Toyota/Lexus has access to all the data from every one of...

Mine was the bulb as well. After having it changed, it's worked like a charm ever since. I notice this issue on a lot of cars that are around the same age as mine. Maybe this generation of HID...

I must admit that I've been really surprised and disappointed at Lexus' response to this. I bought a 2nd Lexus because my first one ('01 IS300) was such a great experience. It's bad enough that...

Farewell to the best car I ever owned

I just sold me first Lexus, a 2001 IS300, blue. I got it in the summer of 2003 and we've been rolling strong ever since. I loved this car. In over 10 years there was only one occasion where I...

I second this.

I just sold my 01 IS300 with 207k miles this past weekend. The motor was still strong, but the suspension was worn and I'd just been quoted about $2200 to change out all the...

Got the car back from the dealer (Sterling McCall Lexus, Houston, TX) last week. They said that the code was "cylinder #5 misfire".

Mine turned out to be the bulb. The dealer changed it out and everything has been working fine since then. Funny thing, I've been noticing a lot of cars of varying brands with one headlight out. ...

I'm having the same issue. In the morning when the car is first started, the light doesn't come on. After driving for a while it seems to come to life. I took it in for service last week (they've...

This year I purchased an '07 IS250 from Sterling McCall Lexus in Houston, TX. At first I thought the dash was just shiny from something they'd detailed the car with. Then I realized that the...

I would agree with you that I don't think the harnesses are interchangeable. The switch layouts are different between the model years. However, from the pictures I've seen it looks as though the...

The 2010 door panel fit perfectly. I was quite proud of myself until the wife pointed out that the color was different from the original. Sure enough, the original was light gray at the bottom,...

Sterling McCall on 59 near the Beltway. I'm not sure what labor was. I paid just under 1800 for a replacement key, nav update, and the dash.

Seeing as I just paid full price to have the dash in my 07 replaced and the dealer made no mention of a TSB, I'd be very interested to see what they tell you.

I took my IS250 in for service today. They gave me an HS250 as a loaner. On it's own merits it's not a bad car, but coming from the IS I kind of think of it as "nerdy". Of course, given that it's...
