Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just purchased my 1st ever Lexus which I picked up last Friday. It's a 250 Sport with the multimedia pack and so far I'm very pleased with the car and the dealer (only driven 200 miles so far).

One issue I'm having is a noise from the driver’s door, near the top just next to my ear.

While driving in heavy rain it sounds like a loud gurgling noise and at first I thought the door must be leaking, thankfully it isn't but the noise is quite annoying. I've also noticed a bit of wind noise and a sort of creaking from the same area when not driving in the rain.

I’m going to give it a bit more time before I get the dealer involved but was wondering if anyone has experienced the same sort of thing?

I also had a bit of trouble loading in my address book from my mobile phone but an upgrade of the phones firmware had sorted that out and it all seems to be working fine now.

Thanks in advance for any advice :)

Is it a brand new car?

The early ones had a spate of probelsm with door seals and lots of wind noise. Mine did and the dealer refitted the door seals and now it's very quite - no gurgling

Yes it's brand new (had 5 miles on the clock when I picked it up)

My car (a Dec 2005 IS250) has been back to the dealer 3 times since I bought it from new with wind noise issues from both front doors. On the last occassion they kept the car for a week. They agree that the wind noise is excessive but cant find the cause. They say that they've referred it to Lexus and are awaiting instructions on what to do next.

As small a problem as it may seem, it's really spoiled my enjoyment of what otherwise is a great car. At anything over 65mph I get a constant, loud wind buffeting sound from both front doors or an irritating hiss in wet weather.

Not heard from my dealer for a while so I guess its time to chase them up again :crybaby:
