Quick Heater - How The Hell Do They Do That?

Recommended Posts

Took my 400 out this morning, it was a bit cool, so turned the heat up. I could not believe how quickly I was getting warm air from the vents. Within half a mile or so, it was blowing toasty air. This is a 4 litre V8 that appears to warm up quicker than my wife's 1.2 Panda. How do they do that?

On a different note, I did about 900 miles last week on holiday in Wales. I think my car may be due for a service, but it was absolutely sublime and never missed a beat. I felt even more smug when I came home and found that my neighbour's new Vauxhall Viva is at the dealer's to have a new clutch fitted (it has done 20 miles). I increasingly appreciate the engineering in the Lexus, and the fact that I can have total faith in a 16 year old car (touching wood now)

No need to touch wood when owning a Lexus.

Just get it serviced regularly, and have any strange noises investigated ASAP.

The LS is superb at temperature regulation whether it be hot or cold, and the seat heaters keep your bottom toasty (unlike some BMWs which are too roasty)
