This can be true if the proper type of solder is not used. We already have soldered PCB's and terminators throughout our vehicle. The connectors you mentioned are absolutely better than the twist...

Yes, this is why I was asking how the cables were hooked up. If hooked up incorrectly it could be any of several major or minor electrical issues.

I can get a nice bottle of dish soap for $.99 and it lasts me for a year's worth of car maintenance on both vehicles. I wash with dish soap, rinse, clay, wash one more time, dry, polish, seal, wax,...

Can you please share a video or instructions? It is not available in my menu. My guess is it is possible on your GX because you have the Driver Support Package. I do not.

It is very simple if you have an iPhone. Settings/Bluetooth/"i" (next to whatever you named your GX460)/Show Notifications = Off.

No idea how to do this with an Android.

I am fairly sure Sport mode only changes the suspension settings and would do nothing to the revs or torque band but I could be wrong.

I get 15 in the city and 20 on the highway without babying it. No comment on your comparison to a Suburban or Ram 1500 because those comparisons make no sense.

I installed the Curt hitch over the weekend. $88 and a 20 minute installation from start to finish. I only need the hitch for my bike carrier and nothing more.

Congratulations on the new wheels. To me the wheels completely cheapen the look of the vehicle but if you are happy with them that is what really matters.

Agreed 100%. I do not live by a railroad track and hardly ever driver over them. Rail dust is not the only thing that contaminates paint.
