Visual Saftey Report Lexus Is200


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have had my IS200 for 18months now. its a 2001 and bought second hand with 38000 miles on the clock. and a full Lexus service history. I have had both the 40000 mile and 50000 mile ( even though it has only done 45000) service done by Lexus Liverpool. They have given me a service report that is hard to believe.

Quote" water pump and by pass hose leaking" £500

"Front discs worn" £350.

"Rear discs inner exessive corrosion" £318.

"Cambelt & tensioner worn" £300.

Is this an acceptable report for a car that has only done 45000miles? or are they trying it on???

If this report turns out to be correct, can anyone give me a reliable garage or mechanic in the Liverpool area to do the work....

Much obliged SteveL

i had the report done at liverpool and then couple of weeks later had my 50k done at hanley and the difference was massive

I also got told my water pump was leaking couldnt find it anywhere, also got told my breaks needed doing took it to a garage and they sed they were fine same with pads

i think the only thing they could have sed needed doing was the Cambelt as my car is 6 years old and has 57k on now but people have told me to wait until 100k

i am not saying they are trying to get work but it did look suspious

Leaking water pump is fairly common at around that mileage. I had mine done at the 40k service and I can't remember how much it cost but it was a few hundred.

You can buy ALL of those parts on the net yourself for much less..... then take them to an Independant and pay for labour only.....

Thanks for the replys.

I have been on the net and found the discs, but I have been unable to find the water pump and by-pass hose, has anyone an idea were I could purchase them, as their is a leak of pink fluid around the joint .This is the only certain problem

    • 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.
