I searched Tire Rack and learned that your tire has since been renamed "Crugen Premium." It's the same tire -- same materials and tread -- as the City Venture. There are some reviews from Tire Rack...

I drove about 100 miles today on the new Michelin Premier LTX tires. They are much smoother and quieter inflated to 36 PSI (cold), which I noticed works out to 40 PSI when the tires are warm/hot....

I hadn't thought of buying tires through my Lexus dealer, but on the other hand, the dealership is about 40 miles from our house in Monterey. There is no Lexus dealership here in Santa Cruz County....

Anita, I am reporting back as directed. I did "play" with the pressure; I increased it and the ride is actually smoother now. I had asked the guys at Big O to set the tire pressure at 35 psi. But I...

I just got Michelin Premier LTXs to replace the OEM Michelin Radial Xs that came with the almost-new 2010 RX 450h I bought in Nov. 2013 with just under 15 k on the odometer. I probably could've...

Where are you that premium is 100 octane and regular is 94? Our regular is 89 octane and our premium is 94, I think. Mid-grade is 91, I believe. In any case, I've never seen a pump here in Central...

I have used premium fuel all along on the theory that it's probably better for this engine, that is if you accept the manufacturer's recommended fuel for the hybrid. I don't understand why the V6 in...

Bert,
Thanks for devoting so much time to replying to me. Coincidentally, I will be at the dealer this afternoon for a NAV update and I'll ask them about it then.

How smart is my Lexus?

I have seen references here to the RX 450h's ability to adjust to your personal driving style, to help you maximize your MPG. Can anybody explain it that's true and, if so, how the car does it?

Fortunately, the dealer's service department is open on Sundays. I spoke to the service adviser; he gave me the number for Lexus Roadside Assistance (which I think I already had somewhere). I called...

Among other things, they performed a brake flush and refilled with new brake fluid and replaced the rear differential oil. Since the leak is at the rear, I'm guessing it's differential fluid.

My RX is leaking

I took my RX450h in for its 30K service last Wednesday. This morning, I noticed a big wet spot in our driveway as I was returning from an errand. It turns out I have a leak somewhere in the rear axle...

Axle nuts or bolts, whatever they call 'em. I had the same problem. I heard a click on both acceleration and braking, from the right front. I asked the dealer to tighten the thingamajigs and, voila...

The "click" is gone!

vlad_a, I took my RX450h back to the Monterey dealer this past week and asked them to check the left-front axle nut. Though the service adviser said the design of the axle nut in the RX is not the...

I think I've got it!

Yesterday I took my RX450h to an excellent independent shop (recommended by a relative and highly praised on Yelp!) to see if they could figure out the source of the clicking noise which they agreed...

As I've mentioned before, I'd planned to wait for the NX300h before upgrading from my '07 RAV4. But then I found this CPO RX450h with only 15,000 miles on it at a very fair price. It was just too...

I am presently averaging better than 28 mpg (measured at the pump) with our 2010 RX450h. I got 30.8 mpg on my last tank of gas -- with around 85% highway miles at 62-65 mph. I would probably be...

It happens after I've been driving at residential-street speeds for awhile, when I brake and when I accelerate away from lights or stop signs (starting from 0 mph). I'm guessing this has something to...

Tire replacement, looking ahead

The tires on our 2010 AWD RXh have 20,000 miles on them. They are 19-inch high-performance Michelins. I hope they have another 20K miles in them, but I read that high-performance tires don't last as...

I took the car in to the dealer (40 miles away) yesterday, and of course, the car would not make the funny sound when a technician when for a ride-along with me. Figures.
