Actually, the blue light does not go away when you accelerate if you accelerate slowly or moderately. It only goes away if you accelerate somewhat aggressively. Also, if you look at the information...

Adding to what I said in an earlier post, I don't notice, especially when I'm driving during the day, the blue lighting often, but, because of this thread, when I was driving about 75 miles today, I...

I also had a couple of the settings changed by my dealer at the same time when I had the 10,000 mile oil change, and there was no charge.

If I remember correctly, the only changes that I made...

You should be fine.

The way that Toyota/Lexus sets up their trouble code warning lights is that, when there is an issue, not only does the check engine light come on, but the traction control and...

But, what the OP wants to do is to have the blue lighting go on and stay on permanently and not just when your acceleration is done in a fuel efficient manner.

It has been over a year since the last time that I checked the "dealer only" custom settings via TechStream, and my memory could be failing me, but I think that, via those settings, you can disable...

I'm not sure that I understand the comments about using higher tire pressures to improve the ride comfort. It should be just the opposite.

I agree 100%. Unless the compression ratio for the vehicle is well over 10:1, which is not the case for the ES, there should be no benefit at all in either performance or fuel economy to using...

It sounds like the "differential service" is a charge for how much more they add to your bill to get the profit differential that they want to make. :)

As Bob said, even if the Toyota dealer...

I agree with the others.

First, with full synthetic oil, there should be no need whatever to change the oil at 5000 mile intervals. Even the Lexus recommendation of 10,000 miles is quite...

I believe that all of the ES vehicles, regardless of package, have come with the same Lamisafe windshield, but others will have to say whether or not that is true.

I would suggest, before taking it back to the dealer, that you pull the codes yourself or have the guys at one of the auto parts stores use their scanner to do it. That way, if you have the codes...

I concur. I'm more than a bit skeptical about the dealer's diagnosis of "bad gas". Poor gas quality (relative to what today's vehicles require) is pretty rare, and the relatively low compression...

With the black, I think I'd try using liquid shoe polish. Perhaps it will work, but, unless you rub on it with a coarse cloth, it shouldn't make things any worse. With a color other than black,...

What I find interesting is the way that Toyota and Lexus seem to want to remake their image to one of a company that makes "bold" and exciting vehicles.
