Turning off the engine has nothing to do with it. I can open my rear hatch with the dash button while the engine is running. I experienced this once, but I don't remember how it was corrected. It has...

The ticking sound is typical for this car. I owned a 2007 since new for over 6 years. It did the same thing. Never had an issue with it at all. Don't worry about it. It is fine.

Why don't you have the entire car dipped in black? You could pretend you're driving a stealth fighter, especially at night. Talk about aggressive!. :D

I truly don't understand the recent fascination with black wheels. In my opinion, they lose all definition and look like they need to be cleaned. It's very hard to see them. They nearly disappear in...

Nope. They just replaced the lower leather seat cover. Nothing else. When you buy this from Lexus it is very pricey.

A few years ago Lexus replaced the lower leather seat cover on my 2007 for just the labor charge. The invoice showed that the lower leather seat cover cost $1,500.00. I don't know where you got the...

Believe me there isn't enough moisture in Southern California (except at the beach) to cause rust. I have different body parts painted on several cars and have never had rust. Repainting the hood is...

We have the same problem with my wife's 2003. There is a lot of glare on the windshield coming off the dash. I haven't found a good solution. Perhaps someone on this forum has.

I think the obvious thing is that this is a new model Genesis in 2015. Whenever a new model comes out there is little discounting in the first 6 months or so. This is true for all Lexus vehicles as...

Actually, you can't (legally) tint front windows in California. Many people do it anyway.

Part of the $5K difference in cost is due to the CPO warranty you get on the 2012. This generally costs about $2000, give or take a few hundred dollars. So a true and fair comparison of the two...

At 10 years of age you should definitely change the timing belt. Should it fail the result is catastrophic to your engine.

Although the tastes in wheels is very subjective, I do think they look good on your SC430.

19 MPG in town is NOT that low. These cars typically get 21 MPG around town. With winter fuel blends and personal driving habits, 19 MPG does not indicate a problem at all. Also, you can take your...

Also, to be clear, the seats are not "cooled". They are ventilated. Don't expect a lot of cooling from the seats.

The top pic of the Cabernet looks more like my wife's interior on her SC430. She has the saddle color. It looks more brown/orange than red.

There likely will be some sort of mid cycle "refresh". Perhaps a change in wheels, and some body or interior aesthetics, but nothing of significance
