The clue to solving both of our problems is that putting a passenger in the second row seat eliminated the noise. The additional weight increased tension on the seat springs which eliminated slack...

Our automotive requirements are a bit different than many (most?) as we have been a one-car family since 1996.

Not only does our only vehicle have to be "bullet-proof" but also the warranty and...

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?

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...

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.

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...
