Pre delivery checks


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I pick up my NX 450h+ Takumi on Thursday. I have been following the car on the app since I was notified it was at the dealers. Over the weekend it was stationary but showing the doors left unlocked during that time.

This morning there was movement and it moved from one part of the dealers to the other I presume to be cleaned and checked over. However when I check the cars journey it has now done 3 miles this morning. Checking the "driving analytics" it shows that it has had 4 hard brake and 5 hard accelerations. Is this a normal part of the PDI or should I be concerned? Looking at the analytics of my RX over the last couple of weeks there has been no notification of any hard braking or acceleration. 

Anyone have any comments as to whether this is normal or someone having some fun?

Don't know about the braking or acceleration  but I assume you want the car to be handed over with a full tank of petrol so that will account for the mileage. Apps for this and that is not a good idea in my view

Hi John,

Prior to taking delivery of my 350h, I was feverishly checking the app to see what the current state of play was. I too received various alerts about doors being unlocked; etc and could see some very minor movement of the car at the dealers (but nothing more than a very short drive). There were no alerts issued from the driving analytics tool at all.

FYI - the mileage when I collected the car was just 9 miles.

Might be worth mentioning it to the dealer when you collect it.

Car has not been filled with petrol yet. The mileage was done in eV mode

How do you know it hasn't been filled with petrol yet. Phev or hev the still need petrol in the tank.

Because you can see on the gauge, showing red and very little fuel in it. EV mileage has change from 15 over the weekend to 10 now so obviously driven mainly on electric. When they fill it up, gauge will change

Mine alerted me of doors left open and fuel at 100%.  It did move around the dealership but the mileage was low on collection.  My driving analytics shows me hard braking and when I looked at the map I knew it wasn’t particularly hard.  Those Takumis have all sorts of sensors on them that need to be initialised - it will remember parking spots etc.  Worth mentioning but it might not be as bad as you think.

Thanks Don, you may be right but  again it also says the car reached a top speed of 72 mph whilst coming back from filling with petrol. In a 50 mph zone!  I will mention it to the dealer but it seems iffy to me.

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
