Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Keep the a/c on permanently. Check windscreen scuttle drains are clear, cabin pollen filter is dry and clean. Don't leave damp coats etc., in the car. Keep the inside of the windows really clean.

Totally agree ^^ A/C is the key.

My rule is buy the car, set the air con, sell the car some years later. No idea why the idea persists that the climate or air conditioning has to be constantly fiddled with or turned on and off. I haven't had a car with steamed up windows since 2003.

Same here. I just leave the AC on. Not had it off in any car for years. It's designed that way.

No need to brag Steve.

There are many of us who might be able to say the same thing !  :):):):):)

Same here with the AC - always leave it on - Keep the airflow on feet+windscreen and change the cabin filter annually. This also keeps the interior fresh and less sweaty hands on long journeys.

"Not had it off in any car for years"

I think that's the opposite of bragging!!!

      Dear all,
       
      Just after a little bit of info. I am after a rear tyre for the IS. She currently has Bridgestone on her which is what Lexus put on her when I purchased her. I only need one for the passenger side as the other still has 4mm of tred left. Just wondering what everyone's opinion was. I am after a quiet tyre and eventually will replace the set once she needs them. 
      What's your opinion?

      Hi All, Newbie here!
      I used to have a 2003 IS200 which I traded in for a Saab 9-3 Aero.
      I miss my Lexus so I'm now looking for an IS250, I have heard that the trim levels can be quite confusing so does anyone have any tips/things to look out for? I have budgeted around £5k for one

      Hi all,
       
      I'm new to the forum and also the Lexus brand.
       
      I've just recently bought a 2010 IS250 F Sport with 34k (now 35k) miles. It's a commuter car for work as I drive on the M25 and A2 everyday in Kent, so needed a nice auto for the daily 64 mile round trip. It's Argento Silver with a lot of options on it as I wanted one with the nav and memory seats, saw plenty without them too.
       
      Only took pics this morning, needs a good wash, clay bar and wax:
       


       
      Loved it so far, very smooth and comfortable. The suspension seems a bit stiffer now I'm living with it daily, but it's still very compliant. It's more the potholes or nasty ridges in the road that vibrate through the cabin. Just sorted the door unlocking last night as it wouldn't open the passenger door when I stopped or opened my door. Now the doors lock when starting the engine and shifting out of park and lock when shifting into park on stopping the engine, perfect! MPG was good on the way back from Stockport, sitting at around 40-43 mpg over 250 miles of mostly motorway. On a new tank of more realistic town and motorway, it's around 32-33 mpg which I think is very good considering the engine size and being an auto.
       
      Things I love about the car - the looks, the seats, the 18 inch alloys, rear camera, Bluetooth streaming, electric seats and steering column, memory function, keyless entry and start.
       
      A quick query while I have some attention, do people use the ECT power mode switch or leave it as standard? Only just read about it last night on this forum, elsewhere and also in the Lexus manual.
       
      Any more hints and tips would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi! I am experiencing something that is rather annoing! I start the car and select first to drive off! All normal! Then i select second and as the revs go up just after 1800rpm there is this rattle sound that i can feel in the steering wheel and vibration! When it gets over 2000rpm it stops and then changing to third is the same going after 1800 rpm when picking up speed the vibration comes back until it goes past 2000 rpm...
       
      In this time i can feel the car vibrating like it struggles around this rev... all normal when 4th is selected! 
       
      If i rev the engine when parked i dont get that! 
       
      I recently cleaned egr and maf and after using shell v-power for months i put a tank of bp to see how it feels! Car accelerates and drives fine but i get that judder/vibration at that rev cound when picking up speed! 
       
      It is something like a BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

      Hi all,
       
      I've been browsing the site for a little while and I'm currently looking at purchasing a 2010 Lexus IS250 F-Sport.
       
      I've had mostly Honda's and have always liked Lexus but haven't been able to afford one.
       
      I've had a good read of this thread - http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/108747-what-to-look-out-for-lexus-is250-2007-model-year/
       
      Were any of these issues fixed in a later 2010 model that I'm looking at possibly? Or was it an exhaustive list for this model, regardless of the year?
       
      The only other thing I'm factoring in is the alloy wheel refurbishment which seems inevitable and also the exhaust which would be replaced by a Tanabe exhaust I think as the standard replacement is so expensive.
       
      Any other advice apart from what I've read in that thread?
       
      The car I'm looking at buying has full Lexus History and has under 50k mileage. I would look to carry on the Lexus servicing as it appears as though they have fixed price servicing.
       
      Thanks,
