First time Lexus owner, LS460

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I became the proud owner of Ls460 L with all the goodies and it's a lovely car to drive so far apart from louder than expected wind noise?! I traded in my horrendously unreliable W221 S class Mercedes, I usually have a big wafty Mercedes and an American Muscle car for the weekends but the W221 although extremely comfortable and full of gadgets let me down too many times.

Hello and welcome,

Whilst I drive an IS250 I am still trying to track down my elusive LS460 in the SE-L variant.
 

During my research, I have note references to the wind noise by other LOC members. There is a DIY fix described somewhere in the club forums - dunno where, sorry. But there is wisdom and assistance readily on offer from this broad church that you’ve joined.

Hope you get it remedied pronto.

and if you do nothing else please have the radiator changed if it's not been done these past few years

I hadn't heard the radiator was a common issue? I read about the brake actuator and the front suspension linkage bushes.

Radiator coolant contamination of transmission oil I think is the real threat around the 100k mark - if I’m not mistaken.
