I agree with Barry2522. I too felt the ride in our 2011 RX 350 was too harsh for what we paid for the car, so based on what someone said on this forum, I bought two KYB rear shocks from Rock Auto...

Our '11 has the backup camera picture as a thumbnail in the mirror. No nav. Small picture. Only meant to check for items/people behind car, not as an aid to backing up.

Astallings,
I tried to order thru AliExpress, but I got a bad vibe. The page said "Free Shipping" @ $34.95 for the set. Too good to be true. Sure enough, shipping was $5.95 from China. Also too good...

Barry2522 - Thank you for the KYB shock recommendation. Replaced stiff-riding OEM rears with KYBs from Rock Auto. Had trouble getting the bolts out, so I had a local shop install them ($200, ouch!)...

I have actual experience. If you have AWD and M+S (mud and snow) tires with good tread, you do not need chains. When conditions get so bad (ice) that you would need chains on AWD, they close the...

I would look at it, and if it's dirty, change it. Instructions are in your owner's manual. I change mine about every 20K.

Hello vikrtk,
Do you have the maintenance record of the previous owners? That would give you the maintenance history.
Should be available at the local Lexus dealer if it was serviced at Lexus. They...

FWIW, in the rain, our FWD RX wheels spin on crosswalk paint when starting from a green light. After they regain traction, the front wheels tend to go amuck until they've settled down and decided to...

I agree with you JT4. We live in CA and when it rains, the AWD Highlander is markedly more sure-footed than the FWD Lexus. But, the Lexus is my wife's car, her baby. She drives VERY conservatively,...

vision1996,
I don't think the EZPass emits a signal or has an antenna. I think the instructions are referring to a radar detector or similar. JMHO.

I sent the OP a PM and no reply. I think he made the whole thing up because he said "I have misplaced my key and cannot find them". His car does not have a key or keys. Maybe he was at Burning Man....

There has been no closure to this post. Has the fob been found? If so where? Inquiring minds want to know.

Texan,
Please tell us where you looked. I can think of some unseen and clever places the fob can hide. Too bad it doesn't have a beeping locator in it like home wireless phones.

KL wagoner,
The "Maintenance Required" reminder comes on every 5,000 miles no matter what. I just deleted mine, just like it says in JDR76's post.

I've been using Costco batteries for 13 years on our Highlander and RX. Never a problem. If the batt goes dead before the warranty, they give you pro-rated credit.
The only caveat is that you have...
