Lexus fair just as badly as any other manufacturer, which is why I use a nice big deterrent in the form of a Stoplock Pro Elite steering lock. In tests and reviews, it took more than 5 minutes to defeat the lock so my hope is that the scrotes will see it and decide that it's not worth the hassle and move to an easier target somewhere else.

And it does seem to work that way:

We've had a bit of chat about this very subject in the 250 forum.

I have a couple of the Faraday bags for my keys...works a treat for me.

my 2 keys are in small portable Faraday bags whenever the car is not in use.

I'd like to think we're pretty safe as these thieves go for more valueable priced cars and anything thats say less than £10k they probably wont bother with?

So have I but they are prone to failure after a while (just look at all the reviews of the various ones on amazon), hence the steering lock - belt and braces  😉

I still use the “press and hold the lock button on the key fob whilst at the same time quickly press the unlock button twice”

This disables the Battery in the fob, therefore no signal is emitted.

If you remember to put your keys in a bag, then surely you can remember to use the lock system every time you leave your car,

Each to their own!

So you don't use the smart entry system at all? Why not just disable the system so you don't run the risk of forgetting to disable the fob? Either a setting in the menu or dealer customisation.

I use a Defender signal blocker pouch for the keys at home. If I’m away with the car but in danger of someone using a relay attack (e.g. staying in a hotel) I turn off the keyless entry function in the menu. Interesting Lexus appear to have added that as my 2014 CT didn’t have the option, at least in the menu.

Best way to prevent keyless theft for little money is by keeping your keys in a tin/tinfoil (ideally both) and try to keep it away from the front of your house. It works wonders I'm told.

  • Club Hybrid Poll

  • 207 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
