Traditionally, OEM car alarms do not have shock sensors. There is an optional glass break sensor, which "listens" for specific noises that occur when a glass breaks. Don't try this at home.

OP, did you have a visual confirmation that the alarm had gone off on your RX?
To me this sounds like a pure coincidence and your remote wasn't even in the range.
It is the unlock button that...

They should take care of that. I wouldn't expect to pay anything with such low mileage.

It does fine in snow, especially with snow tires. But it's not exceptional.
Full time AWD is more capable, stable and fun at higher speeds. But we're talking a whole different architecture here,...

255-50R19 would be my preferred size. I wouldn't go any wider than that on a 7.5" rim.
I have been running 255-55R18 as my winter set. I went wider to compensate for less-grippy winter tires and...

Are you under [powertrain] warranty? If not, you could try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.
You can also stop by an AutoZone and get a free code readings.

How often VSC kicks in is hard to say, as it is very-well integrated into VDIM, which makes Trac...

I can't attest to GS350, but IS350 is OK. Would I pick an IS350 over Germans if it wasn't reliable? Probably not. Audi S4 is substantially quicker and BMW 335i is more nimble.

No, it is not possible. The AWD system is not designed for it.

I would tend to disagree. I had some paintwork done on both IS300 I owned and a good body shop will be able to match factory quality. The paint also holds up better compared to factory - less paint...

The reason I asked about having a factory sub is to suggest an OEM unit as an option.
In this listing you can see what the plug for it looks like, as well as wire colors:

My guess is that it will turn itself off after 20 min, just like everything else on 2013+.
This would be a safety feature for hybrid owners who are most prone to leaving their vehicle "running" in...

Nate,
It's no secret, it drives me crazy as well! No AC button. Why? So we can smell mildew from having AC on all the time?

The trailer wiring is behind the right tail light, so F is not it.

Mine has premium and it already comes with an enclosed sub on the left side.

Are you holding it on the second click?
Also, try turning the key in the driver door lock. Turn it twice to unlock and then hold it in the unlock position.

There's a reason you only get a 4-year warranty with major German brands.
