Hogwash! Nobody would buy a new car that vibrated for the first few miles of a test drive. Find a new dealer!

Unless there's some indication (eg pistons sticking, seals leaking) I'm not sure you need to rebuild the calipers.

Yes, see below.



I doubt it.



You'll need some rust retardant on the bare metal before painting and possibly underseal after painting.

No idea what or where "QC" is but if you are in a wet, snowy, salted climate, you'll need to get the damage repaired and undersealed or it will rust in no time.

I'm not sure I buy the narrative in the video. Most (if not all) modern car seat leather (including Lexus) have an impermiable clear coat applied to the seats.

Try changing gas suppliers. The rotten egg smell is usually caused by high sulfur content in the gas. If that doesn't help, try them again or a different dealership

I believe the ASL is based only on speed. Every 20mph increase, increases my ASL by one unit on the 5 unit bar, regardless of the road surface, windows open etc.

Try drilling it and using one of those reverse thread, broken-bolt removers. Failing that, drill it out altogether and re-tap the threads.

When this happens on an LS460, its the door jamb switch not signaling correctly. Possibly high impedance from corrosion being read as an open door?
