This is a guess as our last LX was a 2004. The lift gate was spring loaded so pressing the release caused it to rise from the spring pressure. Otherwise, what would hold it open?

Newer versions of...

As soon as you start the engine, your GX 460 can produce copious quantities of cold air, but it may take several minutes until the engine warms before it can produce warm air. That is why you need to...

Well said, SecPole14!

Modern steels are either designed not to rust (e.g., stainless steel) or they are designed to rust in such a way as to stop further corrosion. Look at any modern exposed...

I suspect Lexus switched the LX to synthetic motor oil as they did for the 2010 GX 460, which now requires oil and filter changes only every year or 10,000 miles.

120 VAC Power Outlet by Rear Door Hinge

Our 2010 base model GX 460 was 'born' in November 2009 and purchased new in February 2010, but we never used the 120 VAC power outlet at the back of the cargo compartment by the rear door hinge. I...

So why would you?

Sorry, but you have convinced me to leave this to Lexus. As the GX 460 is designed for synthetic oil AND Lexus requires changing the oil and filter only once every year or 10,000...

If you had a flat tire and needed the spare, you would presumably continue to drive with it, especially if it was unused ... it's more dirty than worn. It has been "getting a free ride" while its...

This may seem a "minority report" as so many on this forum recommend the Michelin LTX MS/2, but if you already have Michelin Latitude Tour HP tires that's what I recommend you buy. Two reasons:

If the truck hasn't been wet lately and is driven daily, this does not sound like a problem caused by the brakes sticking. You are doing the right thing by taking it into the dealer although this may...

It could be as simple as rust forming between the pads and rotors. My understanding is that disc brakes are "self-cleaning" ... normal brake use keeps the rotors bright and shiny as we can easily see...

This would seem to support the premise that your main brakes are 'sticking' due to close tolerances between the pads and the rotors. Either that or the emergency brake on a new vehicle is adjusted...

Thanks for your explanation and the diagram, Randy! Just to be clear ... what you call 'freezing' is not due to cold, but rather to something probably chemical (rust?) between the wet shoes and the...

I bet! What is amazing is that a powerful vehicle like the GX 460 is immobilized when this happens. So, what actually is happening? I thought that the emergency brake was a '5th' brake on one rear...
