To me, cutting pads and rubbing compounds are very agressive, especially as a starting point. If the paint is pretty bad to start with, I would start with a swirl remover using an orange (light...

After 4 years with Starfire Pearl RXs (our first was a 2010), I finally figured out what works best for me. By way of a disclaimer, I'm probably more obsessive than some, but not as bad as others. I...

Not all cars are perfect!?!? I would go ballistic if they ever said that to me, and I suspect Lexus will, too.

I agree with whlkev! $200 is already more than fair for this "big service". $400 is ridiculous, bordering on insane. The most labor intensive item on this list is a tire rotation that tire stores...

I just use my air compressor to do the same thing. You can reduce the output pressure, and use it on the interior, too. The volume of air isn't nearly as good with a compressor, but the high pressure...

This thread is REALLY funny! Talk about proof positive that "comfortable" seats are subjective!

We had a 2010 RX 350, and my lovely wife hated the seats. We got a 2013 RX 450h that I would swear...

Do you think the dealer knew about this, and that's why the price was so low? It seems wrong that they would know, and not have it show on the reports.
