RX400h exhaust

Recommended Posts

Hi Im a new member to the club. Just bought a RX400h ( two months ago )very pleased with it. Until this morning when exhaust went. The pipe blew out front of silencer. AA had a look and did good temp fix. Took to eurofit to have a look and they said catalytic converter was missing. Obviously been stolen at some point. I need to get it sorted but is this going to be a main dealer job?😒 Any suggestions?

Hi Tony and welcome to the LOC.

The exhaust middle section comes with the cat and middle box as one piece, the only problem is that it costs around £1300.00 from Lexus!

An alternative and probably cheaper option would be to have a custom stainless exhaust system made utilising a universal cat, have a google around your local area for a company.

Tony, do a search on this forum and unfortunately you'll discover that the RX400h is one of the main targets for cat thieves.

If you bought the RX from a Motor Dealer and if it is possible that the Cat was missing when he sold you the RX and if it is likely that the repair (which had been made so as to conceal the absence) has now failed then legally it is the Motor Dealer`s problem to fix at his cost.

    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
