My 2006 IS350 had one of these. That's where I first heard about it, but the technology is older than that as you will discover if you dig into it. I made the same bad assumption in 2007 right here...

And the outside temperature is cold too. My IS F just started doing this today with Michelin PSS on the front when OAT went to 40F and it was wet.

You need to read the blog especially SECTION 2 – MOTOR OIL VISCOSITY SELECTION. Thicker oil is a bad idea for a whole lot of reasons, not the least of which is you will run hotter and lose power. The...

I would have them validate the ATF level is correct. The AA80E is very sensitive to low fluid level; even a few ounces made a significant difference in my IS F. When it is correct, there are no...

Android 4.4.2? Wow. Really old stuff there. Looks like cool hardware, but they need to bring it to the modern age. Sounds like my S8+ would run circles around it.

You are mistaken, it does not have a clutch of any kind. No Lexus has for quite a long time.

You must have never had a 1980 Honda 750F with ND plugs that died above 6k rpm after only 600 miles. Ran like a top below 6k, but broke up miserably when trying to get to the 9500 rpm redline.
