By the way, for those saying that a complaint should be filed, that was done pretty much immediately after I got off the phone with the goofball.

You're fine. Pressing the gas pedal should override the cruise characteristics. The risk is that if you are accelerating and happen to ride the tail of another car with the cruise on, once you...

The 085 kit is for both fronts and the 086 kit is for both rears. Obviously your needs will be determined by whether you are doing just two or all four wheels, but assuming you're doing all four...

Hi all,

I assume that many might not frequent the LS portion of the forum, so I though I would repost this here as it's pretty relevant to our locale.

Thumbs down Disgusted with Lexus of Orland (IL)

Well, never thought I'd have to call Lexus corporate, but I guess there is always a first for everything.

Just a bit of background first. For the last 5-10k miles I've been trying to track down a...

With respect to the actual pads, they work great and I saw little difference between Akebonos and stock. However, I would recommend that you have new anti-rattle clips installed at the same time.

Why not try a different dealer. You're in a large metro area, so there should be no shortage of dealers around.

One thing I would say to check yourself is to make sure your brakes are not making...

Thanks for the feedback. I am going to go the ebay route and try the newer clips before I shell out $100 for something as simple as rattle clips.

I was looking into that whole issue when looking for a 600 and determined that pretty much any stroller should be able to fit. However, I did end up with a 460L with a short trunk, so it's probably...

If you like streaming audio, then the Bluetooth connection is very convenient. The other thing is I think some 2009s still had issues with control arms, wind noise, and hard seat cushion.

Well I did the "ride the brakes" test and yes it is the pads. Any application of brakes eliminates the crazy rattle. I guess the next step will be to buy all new anti-rattle clips and see if that...

Brake pad rattle

This question is more for those with aftermarket pads (particularly Akebono pads), how much rattling noise do they make when doing over medium-sized irregularities in the road.

Every time my car...
