Free Virtual Inspection By Lexus Main Dealer


Recommended Posts

Went to LEXUS main dealer to re-programme the remote key and to order a new spring for fuelflap on my GS300 and was offered a FREE VISUAL INSPECTION whilst the car was in.

Always received this inspection report whenever my other LEX was serviced so simply thought it only comes with servicing the car. Good to have some professional advice for things that owners are not aware.

It only costs 21.15 to re-programme the key and 1.69 for the spring, but after the inspection found the coolant expansion tank was completely empty.

There was a fluid flowing noise for few seconds coming from behind the dash when engine starts, the noise has gone after topping up the coolant tank although it can also be a coincidence.

I think many people on here are still wondering what that could be.. Air con, Coolant, Rad leak etc still not got a right answer... however I think it probably due to the air con system.

Is the free inspection only if you buy somthing or get somthing serviced?

I think not, should have been the first thing to check.

Have seen other posts having this sort of noise on their cars and finding the solution.

- Had taken the car to a specialist the next day of purchase and couple of things found not right were sorted. It has a good service history all carried out by main dealers but few recent stamps are missing. No other major advice received and the car has barely been used since.

- Did think it concerns with AC which isn't as cold as it should and the slight noise sounds like what you can hear sometime from fridge/air con system. Not aware of any effects on driving though.

- Couldn't get the AC done on the day went to dealer as it needed another booking. Anyway it will be inspected soon by the dealer for peace of mind although no more noise coming till now.
