High performance brake pads have a tendency to squeak in cold weather. So if only f-sport owners have this complaint, it's kind of understandable. My Corvette squeaked from time to time.

For the transmission issue, might be just a software issue that could be fixed with another update .

If I'm not mistaken, the LS is the first lexus to have this engine and transmission combination so first buyers are the guinea pigs

There was a similar transmission issue on the 2007 and 2008 cars. I only experienced it once on a 2008 that I bought in December 2008. They applied a firmware update and I never had a problem with the transmission after that. So while Lexus did release one firmware update that helped a bit, it certainly hasn't fixed the issue completely. I will let Lexus know, and suggest that everyone else who has the issue do the same.

Well I don't think it's that time to Lawyer up - as with most things in the world you always run the chance of having issues. None of this is a perfect science and things will happen, however, it's incumbent upon the customers to keep the company honest by continuously voicing opinions, concerns and problems. If that company cares about it's brand they will step up. Toyota is a company I like, trust and who "LOVES" their customers and produce vehicles that maintain their value, are of the highest quality and consider their relationship with the world an honor and privilege. For those of us who may experience a problem with their vehicle, be it a Toyota or Lexus - have a talk with your service tech or the dealership general manager. Trust me, Toyota has turned a new leaf since that accident in 2010 with the sticking accelerator in a manner that I've never seen with any manufacturer in their relationship with customers. Yep, I definitely a Toyota fanboy, not car enthusiast, but definitely know a winning company when I experience it. Can't say that about many other's.
