I don't think carfax would include maintenance information. Lexus dealer is your bet for it.

Maintenance of Lexus should be on pair with any other Toyota cars (as mine is). Parts are mostly the same, same job. You just have NOT to go to dealership for it. That's it. :)
No big problems...

Stock Michelin is good for me.

Michelin - Defender XT™ is newer replacement for the stock Michelins, 225/65R17 from Costco - quite satisfied with them.

Don't be scared by after warranty issues. It's less compare to other cars and aftermarket parts are not expensive. Many fit to both Toyota and Lexus models.

Does it lose coolant? If not, you have time to find independent mechanic. I can recommend one in Brampton. Dealership is too expensive and not always most competent.

My RX330 on idle runs not faster than 5-10 Km/Hr
If you have normal idle RPM, it looks like transmission doesn't downshift when you release gas pedal.

Better find independent mechanic.
