Im about to call and want to get my story together..
I need the Valves Spring done..
Cams?
Brakes?
I do have a squeaky front driver seat as well.
I just got my car maybe 4 or 5 months ago CPO, Could they pull up the records and see what has not been done and be honest in telling me so I can get it taken care of?

Lexus of Austin told me they are running about 6 weeks behind, and will have to order the parts, and they'll call me. Also said they'd have to keep it for a week.

You can call ANY Lexus dealer and have them pull up the vehicle's service history if you don't trust your local dealer.

Got my car back last night. It took them two days to do the valve springs and cam. I've been driving it pretty hard and nothing has failed. No leaks, smoke, or noises.

Where is the TSIB for the IS250 owners that have a car that shakes when coming to a stop?

Sounds like the carbon buildup issue... there's like a 50+ page thread on it

This may be a stupid question, but can anyone tell me if the service for this recall includes an oil change? I figure if they're at least partially taking the engine apart, there's a good chance they're going to need to drain all the oil and replace it when they're done.

They don't change your oil. As it's only the top that they take off.
