  1. What Car reliability results 2019 I'm sure this must have been posted before, but I can't find it so here it is (possibly) again! Published in November 2019, the results for Lexus are pretty exceptional. CT, NX and RX scores are beyond reproach, and very much bear out my own experience with my NX. As I've noted before, I appreciate my NX more the longer I own it. The build quality really is impeccable.

  2. Had one yesterday while my wife's RX was in for a service - fancied seeing how it compared to my IS300h. Nice car, nippy and pretty economical ( I averaged 46mpg) and obviously more of an updated interior than my IS. Fine for me size wise even at 6ft 4 but obviously limits the rear legroom which would be an issue taking my son and his pals to rugby. I knew the boot would be small and I wasn't disappointed! Not sure I'll be buying one just yet but wouldn't rule it out in the future.

  3. Thanks for the key recommendations folks, ordered two new ones this morning. The code was partly worn away, but the ebay man (Jim) managed to used the pictures to decipher it. In other news, this morning was the first time i've experienced the wobbling rythmic jerk as flagged by the OH and mentioned in my first post. We only drove 5 m inutes to walk the dog, so when I got out I had a feel of all the wheels and brake disc hubs. All were cold except the rear passenger rotor, where the noise sounds like its coming from. So I think this is likely to be a sticky caliper that has cooked the whe

  8. In my view reading the Handbook and a copy of the current Highway Cope are essential for all owners of cars new to them. Enjoy the RX Tom.

  13. As regards roof rails - From previous thread on same subject:- Posted September 16 Somebody on the forum mentioned that he got a heavily discounted pair from Lexus Birmingham in June. When I finally got though to them on the 3rd occasion in July and a week apart, having been told they would ring me back but didn't, they said the offer had ended and the rails were at a much higher price, I contacted 'Lexus Direct' (who sometimes put in an appearance on this forum) and they agreed to post a pair to me for the inclusive price of £300. and it hopefully st

  14. Just had this done yesterday at Lexus Hull - superb service as ever and they also supplied the UX250h I requested as the courtesy car - fancied seeing how it compared to my IS300h. No major dramas with the service save for a broken rear coil spring which will need sorting before the MOT due middle of March plus also called out the need soon for new front discs and pads - will get both done locally. Car continues to perform really well but now my wife has taken over the responsibility of paying for the maintenance I suspect it will be the last time the car sees the inside of a main dealership!

These may be on our site somewhere and be discounted. Also leave keys in the house so you can't accidentally switch on whilst discs are off. John

Catalytic converter thief crushed to death by car by PAUL MILES Police probe: The scene at Marshgate Industrial Estate PICTURES: SWNS A WOULD-be thief was crushed to death when a car fell on him as he tried to steal its catalytic converter. Gary Gray, 38, died after the jack holding up the Vauxhall Astra came loose — causing the full weight of the vehicle to slam down and suffocate him. An inquest heard that he had been attemp

  18. Hi herbie, the air fuse is a larger size j type fuse , and my mistake it’s a 60amp, Lexus 3 days but got one in 10 mins from auto electrician. Bit awkward to fit have to strip fuse box down to get to the two screws that’s hold it in 😩😁

  19. Thanks again for all the replies and recommendations. I've purchased a bottle of "Bouncers Dress To Impress" so will give that a try if and when the weather allows me to get out and give the car a really good going-over. I'll report back here on my findings.

  20. The figures quoted by Martin are pretty much what I'm seeing too. I acquired my NX in July so didn't get the full spring \ summer temperature "boost" but the car was still averaging around 40 mpg before we hit autumn. I'm seeing less mpg now that we are in mid-winter and it seems to have bottomed out at 38.5 which I'm reasonably happy with. Motorway runs definitely have an adverse effect on mpg.

  22. Just passed it's MOT, no advisories. Not a single fault in two years, only maintenance items. Pretty good for a car that came with no history at all 🙂

  23. Block off the air vents and hire a smoke machine. Put it inside the car and see where the smoke emanates from - where smoke comes out, water can get in.

  24. If the car uses 0w20 grade oil this is only made in fully synthetic, but my answer could have been worded better "yes" meaning it is fully synthetic" answering your question, and the rest of my answer was for grade guidelines. Your car should also be suitable for the latest grade of oil for energy conservation "mpg" 0w16. This is reputed to give better ware protection along with higher mpg figures. John.

  26. I have now had the winter wheels/tyres fitted to the NX. The ride quality from the full winter Michelin Latitude Alpin L2s is much more comfortable and compliant than the standard Yokohamas. It makes you wonder why Lexus don't fit Michelins (Cross Climate?) as standard as they are selling a premium vehicle into the UK which has variable weather. It would not cost them very much. There is about the same level of road noise which is good given the tread pattern on the winters. I can't really say about the grip performance in poor conditions as we haven't had any yet but I don't anticipate a

  27. The update is free via the tech website. No charge is made for any updates within three years and the instructions are pretty easy to follow if you have some computer knowledge. Via a dealer is different. Some have carried out the update for customers for free according to some posts I’ve seen. Other dealers don’t even know that the updates exist or that that they are available for three years. Others may do it and charge a nominal fee for the labour involved. I wouldn’t blame the dealers here either. My one gripe with Lexus and their in car entertainment/navigation systems is that head
