Creaky Is250


Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have this problem where the car is very creaky? My seat creaks and there seems to be a lot of creaks from the roof of the car also, especially in hot conditions. The roof side of things seems to come from the sunroof.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced a creaky car from there new IS250. Gonna phone them about it 2moz though!!

There were quite a few threads about this when the car first came out, think the dealers know about it but basically they have to dismantle the dash and stuff and put in extra padding if memory serves me right?

My car having been in for the dash rattles some 6 weeks ago is exhibiting symptoms of creaking from what seems like the passenger SEAT/door/dash. This has only recently started to appear during our fine hot weather and it's starting to get on my nerves. I've got the seat belt recall to book in, so will get them to look at it for the umpteenth time.

Ivan.

I had a squeaky seat. They tried to fix it twice and still squeaked. So I told them to replace it and they did. New seat, no squeaks.

There have been a few other threads here where people have had the same issue and I think at least a couple haev had the seats replaced.

I too have a rattle in the dash (centre speaker area). Update yesterday from the dealer was after two days working on it they now know what it is but can't get to it (I think from taking the centre Sat Nav system, etc out) so they are going to take out the dash or some part of it to get to the rattle.

More on that issue tomorrow, maybe.

Unfortunately it won't be 3 strikes and it's out and a new car!

Yes the squeaky seat issue can be very distracting. After 2 attempts the dealer got them sorted out. Apparently, they simply tightened the seat anchor bolts. Seems hard to believe, but my car is now silent again! :D

Well, put the car into the dealer to fix the creaking front seat. Supposedly it was something to do with the ICE pack I have in the back...either way the creaking has gone after removing the seat and fixing something!

However......why is there always a but???? the bloody memory seats dont work since the seat was removed. Im not to happy with this. But what can I do apart from take it in again. So on the phone tomorrow me thinks. Bit disappointed with the courtesy car, gave me IS250 Se-L, no MM, very basic model. Was hoping for an upgrade to what I have. But saying that I have the top of the range IS250 Sport

Think when I book it in again I will ask for a better upgrade, however still annoyed that I have to take it back!!!

Anyone else had issues like this?

remember i have the ICE pack and the better seats, so I was comparing it to my car. And it was no way better.

As I say seats are fixed which is good but the memory function I am annoyed at. I thought lexus Edinburgh would have been better than this!

The ICE pack is the DVD players on the back of the head rests. That was supposedly the problem some cable in the seats. The memory function is really bugging me.

Soz mate wont be in tomorrow but I am phoning them first thing to book the car in!!!

    • 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.
