  1. Probably just the angle of the steering geometry on full lock causing the tyres to judder on the road. Normally it does it just when the tyres are cold and hard. Quite normal and nothing to worry about.

  3. I used a carpet cleaner from Aldi and the cream carpets came up like new. Just having trouble getting the cream seatbelts done if anyone has any recommendations? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Got the Goodyear Vector4seasons on my GS. Great all season tyre. Proved up to the job with the bit of snow we had around the Snake Pass a few days ago.

    Sounds good. Does it just wake up again once you press a button?
  6. The car has been in Lexus for a week now to replace the aircon pump. I take it doesn't happen that often as the parts were not readily available. Story started last Saturday on the way to the Lake District. Heard a loud screeching noise on the motorway so slowed down, then all went quiet so carried on. Next thing 'check aircon system' warning message came up so I turned the aircon off from the menu and carried on thinking I'll look into that when we return back home. Then another message came up 'check battery charging'. Then I knew it was the belt. So pulled over and saw the belt had snapped, then rang the Lexus Assistance. AA turned up 1.5 hours later in a van and said he won't repair as something has caused the belt to break and could go again in the middle of the Lakes. Car was too heavy for him to tow so ordered a flatbed. 1.5 hours later truck arrived and too late to take to dealer so took us home. Another 1.5 hours to get home then jumped into the wifes RAV and drove back up to the Lakes. Missed our evening meal but had a fab weekend. Then Monday afternoon rang for assistance again to get car transported to dealer and collected hire car from Enterprise (a brand new top of the range Toyota Landcruiser). Lexus phoned Tuesday to say the pump had seized and should be ready by the end of the week. Then very luckily Enterprise rang on Thursday to say that the 3 day hire provided by the AA was finished and I'd be paying for the car myself from now on! Quick call to Lexus and they confirmed that it was true and I could redeem the cost back afterwards from the Lexus Warranty. Just before Christmas I didn't want to be paying out so rang Enterprise back and said how much is it costing me. £86 a day! If I had not gone into what was happening I would of had to pay them £522 if the car was ready today. So the car was immediately returned saving that payout. Anyway car hopefully ready at 11.00 today. Glad I took out the warranty but it's still a huge hassle and possible expense when you have a breakdown.
  7. Was the car in the same place each time it didn't work? Don't need to disconnect the battery. Just hold the fob against the starter button and press button to start car as normal. The alarm will stop then.
  8. I didn't do anything,. It just worked after pairing the phone. Just got to be careful if your mates send a text and your wife's in the car
  9. My 2008 GS can read out text messages but not emails. So I'm sure your 2014 will do better than mine.
  10. Hate it when I get a CT. Last time it was a nice NX Premier though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. It's up to 10 years at the time you take out the warranty. You can take a 2 year warranty out the day before it's 10 years old. So many will be 12 years old before the warranty expires.
  13. Ended up changing my battery this weekend. The frost finally killed it. Looks like it was still on the original battery (Panasonic) so not bad for 9 years old. Managed to get a Bosch S4 from Eurocarparts for £94 in the weekend 35% sale.
  14. Sounds like the actual fan is out of balance
