I agree with the poster who suggested filing down or roughing up the operative area of the dipstik. A Dremmel tool would be nice for this, and reminds me that I have had cars whose dipstick included...

I think you guys need brighter lights in your garage. I put a few cheap fluorescent fixtures around the ceiling, and it helps a lot (or "alot" as they say on the twitter) for all kinds of automotive...

Well, if this is the kind of problem RX owners have to face, this is a pretty well made car.

Thanks for that news. I bought an '04 in '07, and have been driving it since then. For the most part, all service has been only routine; these cars are as trouble free as they come. Although I am...

Yes. My Infrared was $595 extra and well worth it. The USB (actually it should be UB, as Ultrasonic is one word - actually it should be UBM, as the name used by Lexus is "Ultrasonic Blue Mica") is...

I looked at my turn signals (RC350 - not F-Sport or F): the turn signal is not in the swoosh daytime lights on my car. The signal is an amber bulb located between the two headlamp lights in the light...

Thanks. I had one of the first SC430s in town, and drove it for almost 14 years. I do have the first RC in town, and would not be surprised if it sticks around for another 14 years.
