I have been to several Lexus dealers over the years, and have (with one exception) been pleased with the experience.
However, the service department at Towson Lexus is horrible (no exaggeration)....

I think that both red and pink are ethelyene glycol based. The major difference is in the additives, e. g. rust inhibitors.

I am curious how a car manufactured in early '09 is a MY 10.
I think I would check the VIN placard (I think on the driver's door frame) for both mfg date and model year.

You can peek unless you have a UL. It has no passthru because the space is occupied by the rear air conditioner.

This is from memory, so could be wrong.
I thought that the LS430 specified pink coolant (at least for the 04-06) rather than red.

No, I don't propose that quality ("better" is in the eye of the buyer) is directly proportional to the price, although there is usually some correlation.

I would like to understand this.
Price is your most important factor for what is arguably the most important safety part on your luxury car?

The spelling he used was common in WWII-era military manuals (e. g "RF alinement"). I think (can someone confirm?) that the Brits use it also.

It is NOT normal to smell fuel under any normal circumstances (not like you have poured some into the intake).
You have a potential fire hazard, and should investigate the cause.

It sounds like you have been lurking, so probably know how to research it, but re-post if you need directions.

I forget because I don't answer the phone while driving.
