  1. Hi, Yes I am still a fan of the RX Range. And I have now got a quote from Lexus for the fuel filler pipe rust issue of £561.will probably book the car in for the work to be done, pity its not a recall issue as with some other models in the Lexus range. Then it will be onto Silk Mil Garage Galgate for a full under body hot power wash and wax oil.
  2. Seems we have the same problem, could you recommend the dealer ? and do you have an estimate of the cost ? I need to get mine sorted.
  3. Thanks for your informed reply sorcerer, just to clarify on the previous MOT no mention of any fuel pipe rust issues and no advisories. At the latest MOT and service the car did fail on rear break pipes in a very short section as they meet the calepers, less than approx 3 inches due to them not having the plastic coating that covers most if not all the lenghth of pipe, that issue was attended to at a cost of £150 + vat before I drove the car home. Gaining a second opinion my trusted garage did say that the other advisors were a bit harsh ( bushes and discs) might need attention at next MOT. I did see the rust and to be fair it did seem quite bad, I wish I had taken a photo! I have sent a email to Lexus asking for a quote for replacement of the filler pipe ( some 8 days ago ) but no response as yet.
  4. Thanks for all your comments, the quote from Lexus of £800 and then one for £45 from a indipendent says a lot. I would appreciate any advice as to a workshop in the north ( Lancaster area) that would do the fuel filler pipe job.
  5. Hi, do you think its a job for the keen DIY,er
  6. Following an MOT test and service, an advisory was flagged up as to the high degree of corrosion on the fuel pipe (filler pipe) the service engineer (Carlisle Lexus) called me through to the work shop to point out the extent of the corrosion, and to be honest I was a bit shocked ( no mention of the deterioration in the previous MOT) consequently I took my RX 450h 2010 to my other very trusted service garage for a second opinion, and to my shock he confirmed what Lexus had pointed out. So my question is has any other member had occasion to replace corroded fuel filler pips? and the possible cost, and a car only 7 years old should show such corrosion. Keith D
  7. Hi Rayaan. As a new boy to the site, and the proud owner of a 2010 RX 450h, and with your extensive knowledge could you help me with the following . I have been trying to understand how to re-set "best mpg" etc , and the random date in September 2015. Sorry it's upside down. Kind regards Keith.

      Hi Ray,

      I was doing it wrong ! I have now got the information ( more by luck than knowledge ) that you pointed out, I was not just taping down on the enter button to get to the additional mpg information etc. I do feel rather stupid, but thanks for your help.

      Keith.

  8. Just through it out to you knowledgable Lexus 450h people, please see the attached photo and please give me a clue as how to reset . cheers.. Sorry it has appeared upside down , but hope you can see that I am not getting best mpg information and the date is showing some time last September . keith.
  9. I am currently awaiting a quote for a tow bar for a 450h , hope I don't get a shock.
  10. Thanks for your comments, I popped into Lexus Bolton and the kind guy ran a check through a Lexus web site (www.lexus-tech.eu/Bluetooth/search.aspx)and my Nokia 2630 came up as not compatible on any of the 8 key needs for it to work. I did ask if he could do a check on what phones would work, but he said chose one and ask me again to run a check hummm, thought it might have been quicker for Lexus to have the information to hand .... Just need to find someone with an orange unlocked phone and keep trying. (very trying) Keith.

I am having lots of problems trying to Pair and transfer my phone contacts via bluetooth. it will connect and then dis connect then connect and just when you think all is well it will disconnect. spent around 5 hours trying (is it me, the phone, or car.)
