I can get 28mpg in my LS460 if I keep to 70mph. My RX gets about 23 under the same conditions. It does, however, have 175,000 mile on the clock (the LS has 70,000).

If the car starts after 3 or 4 attempts, it's probably not the battery, but get that checked at any battery store that can do a CCA load test. The dealership should be able to diagnose the problem...

Agree with him^. Frankly, my LS460 has been a disappointment compared to the strengths of the LS430.

The ticking is only with the AC on? ACs make noise but it shouldn't be intrusive.

Something somewhere is loose. Could be a fuse, could be a connection in the circuitry. Might want to check the ground on the outlet.

I think you'll need to take it to a dealership for diagnosis. Sounds like the idle speed in neutral may be too low. That's not a simple adjustment.

Call United Radio in Syracuse NY. They can probably replace the HDD for a LOT less that the dealer replacing the entire unit. You could try the update suggested above but I think that's a long shot.

Any chance you can identify a convenient driveway where the car makes this noise and take the dealership mechanic for a demonstration?

The front plate spoils the look of the car, in my opinion. I'd just remove it and buy a couple of plastic plugs for the holes, paint them and glue them in.

Be more careful parking! ;)

Haven't had this problem. Could be an issue with the GPS antennas also. But I'd try the Nav update first.

If one of the cells had shorted then it may well just be the battery. Let's hope so! I usually get 6-7 years from an OEM battery. Nice that they replaced it without pro-rating.
