Just completed first oil change. One question?

We have two Lexus dealerships here. One didn't recommend it and only does drain and fill for $115. The other does have the special machine and can do it for $400. Go figure

Anyone get a letter from Lexus regarding potential recall?

I got one in the mail just yesterday. It was about some potential recall about gaskets or something like that. They must have sent it out to everyone. This was for the earlier IS models I believe

Yeah, mine definitely not working as great as I thought it would

Not sure how the system is set up to achieve the dual temp. I guess higher end models probably have dedicated blowers

Turning off invasive "Check System" when running winter tires without TPMS

I have winter tires now. No TPMS.

I understand cars will flash and warn me about TPMS sensor.

I'm sorry, but I'm not going to leave my tranny fluid in there for life (as Lexus likes to call it)

Over time it does degrade. I'm at 80K and 6 years on the car. It needs to get changed out.
