  1. so far used Lexus Chester (trade in\purchase) Lexus Stockport (trade in\purchase) and Lexus Bolton (servicing\recall) and had no issues at all.
  2. the door seal making a noise is a common Lexus issue, had it on my IS and GS. The rubber seems to dry out and rub together over bumps giving a noise like when you open a fridge door. Treat mine with WD40 silicone lube and solves the problem. Never had this on any other car I've ever owned. On the flip side only Lexus issue I've had over 3 years of ownership.
  3. let us know your thoughts IS vs GS. I went from on 09 IS250 to a 13 GS250 and I love it. even smoother, more refined and extra space is great

  5. use v power then. Only down side is geting an OCD about finding a Shell garage. I gave up smoking last year so use v power all the time, and now in my GS250 as well as the cost is nothing compared to cigarettes after a lot of research Vpower is the best super available IMHO, it has the most sophisticated\effective detergent package in the fuel
  6. you only need apply a tiny amount. I used it mainly as a diagnostic for squeeky noise from door of my IS a couple of years ago. Totally silent afterward. Not sure about the long term affect on rubber so now use wd40 silicon lube. Might get some of the stuff you recommend next time

  8. this also works applying small amount of fairy liquid - other washing up liquids are available but untested at this time :-)
  9. Ive checked my tyres and they have been down 2-3 PSI without any warning. I read somewhere - cant think where now, that the warning only occurs if you lose 20% + pressure. No idea if its right but for my GS250 that would equate to 7 psi loss before warning...
  10. I have the 12.3 inch split screen. The small screen on the right can show trip information which is overall average mpg (since reset) time elapsed (journey specific) and range (prodict miles until empty). I cant display the info you want by default. Youd have to zero trip A or B and reset the average MPG before a specific journey to get the info you want.
  11. Id say that is bad as i'm getting 26mpg from my GS250 in similar circumstances
  12. as your car is 2014 and under warranty, take it back to the dealer? I have a noise in my 2013 GS250 but its very intermittent, sometimes I don't hear it for days. its over on the passenger side and I can only describe it as a metallic cricket (as in the insect rubbing its legs together) but cant pinpoint its source. So annoying on an otherwise fault free car
  13. Lexus would on a service plan. The plan covers normal service items like those you mention, and labour.
  14. My GS250 is a luxury spec and the ride is very comfortable and composed (18" wheels).
