Had the rattle around the rhs dash sorted by Lexus Poole but picked up the centre speaker rattle a couple of days ago. It stops rattling if I press down on the speaker.

Gonna get the integrated iPod thingy fitted so will get rattle sorted at same time.

After 5100 miles I also have an awful lot of stone chips on the front valence and two on the bonnet. Anyone else got many ?

I'm still only getting 34mpg with an average speed of 54 mph :angry: on a long run. Last time into Poole they were about to tell me something to do with the poor fuel economy, then changed their mind and said to "watch this space" ...

Hiya matey - that sounds really strange...

I've done hardly any miles and am getting high 30's-mid 40's on each tank full now, so whilst not brilliant I can live with it.

Let us know if you hear any more, it could just be yours with an issue. Have you suggested something as drastic as a reset of the ECU and/or EMU?

As far as centre speaker goes, whilst mine is fixed, I have noticed that the grill is a bit loose on one side again, and easily can be moved...It's just a poorly made speaker grill.

Still waiting for the seat to be replaced. Could be next week. The rattle around the centre dash speaker is getting more frequent and lined up to have it looked at next week as well. Combined with replacing the front seatbelts and looking into some wind noise, could be a long day or two at the service centre.

They have lined up a RX350 for me as a loan car. We'll see if I get one.

No rattles on the SEL Auto and no more wind noise. Drove back from Crawley yesterday and it returned 28.3 mpg, which is the most it's ever done. Probably explained by having the wife with me, so stayed on the limits and cruised mways at 88 mph. :D

SE-L is on 2800 miles now.

On the limits but travelling at 88 mph? Ah, of course - you must be talking about the Crawley just outside of Berlin...?? :winky:

Still have dash creaks in my IS250. The creaks come from the centre stack and seems to be temperature related as it appears to be an expansion noise. Can be quite loud sometimes and generally not activated by bumps (only sometimes). The dealer have had one go already with no improvement, but will get them to try again when the seatbelts get replaced.

Problem also reported by a US owner on the club lexus site.

Also have an occassion buzz from above the tacho. Used to occur all the time until Lexus had a go at it. Only comes back infrequently (usually at night) so haven't bothered to get Lexus to look at it again.

Got a lift home in a friend's Hyundai Sonata the other day. Not a rattle or creak from the dashboard of what he calls his "throwaway car". Road noise also appeared more subdued as well! Problems I have had with rattles etc means that the IS250 is off his shopping list as a replacement for his family car. Front runner is a X class Jag. Yuk.

    • 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.
