  1. Hi, we go from Ardrossan to Brodick Lochranza to Claonaig, Oban to Castlebay, Ardmhor ( Barra) to Eriskay, Berneray to Leverburgh, Tarbet to Uig, and finally Armadale to Mallaig, then drive back to Cheshire. Accomadation and ferries all booked 8-20 th May and looking forward to it. Decided LS best car for journey and trust all goes well, cheers, Roger
  2. And I am taking the LS to the Outer Hebrides in 3 weeks time for a 2 week holiday
  3. I totally agree, been in exactly the same situation, thinking about what might need doing, to find all ok. Take Phil’s advice and just enjoy. Mine is now on 97500, mot coming up in June, I will just take it all as it comes, and if a problem, hello Paul Frost. Happy motoring 😜
  4. Never heard that before. There is a school of thought that you do it periodically, probably beginning of season, to clear out bacteria, but also never done that in any cars, without any problems.
  5. I always leave my aircon switched on all the time, winter and summer for that very reason. I don’t know of a reason for doing otherwise, there is minimal cost involved.
  6. That is amazing, does not really owe you much, and I bet not cost you much, and possibly in the hands of an able self mechanic type will go on 👍
  7. Also sorry to hear of your predicament, and trust your wife makes a full recovery. Love the boat and your photos and reports ,Rgds,Roger
  8. Here’s my sons 2010 (60) Lexus RX450h SE-I CVT for sale for £15,995. The car is located in South West London. As written by my son: I have had the car for almost 5 years, having bought from the Lexus dealership as the 2nd owner. It is such an easy car to live with that we just kept it, but now we need a 7 seater and this is why we are selling. The RX has just short of 55,500 miles on the clock, has only ever been serviced at the same Lexus dealer and has a genuine full Lexus service history from new. I have a stack of paperwork and receipts from over the years. The battery was replaced by Lexus in December 2017 and the car benefits from a Lexus extended warranty until October this year. The car is also covered under the Lexus Hybrid Battery Warranty. Mechanically the car is in excellent condition and the bodywork is excellent too, with only the odd minor scuff/scratch that you would expect for the age. The alloy wheels have very little if any scratches. The car comes in metallic grey with a lovely bi-colour ivory/black leather interior, and has benefited from Lexus rubber mats and boot mat, as such the carpets are almost as new. Contact number 07923156368.
  9. The good thing is that whilst rust coming through is annoying, it is relatively easily fixed, as Malc said not bad for 15 years old, and generally there are not too many major issues to deal with. If yours is mechanically sound, just deal with these issues and enjoy. That is what I have decided to do. I get more comments about how good a ride, from friends, than any other car I have ever owned.
  10. Have a look at post on Jan 15th by Katana 92 covering this subject. I always bought Toyota / Lexus original battery, but it did not last. Replaced recently through Tanya batteries , Enduroline 072, perfect fit, was £79.95. Love your car, should last another 10 years, Rgds, Roger
  11. This happened to a friend with a GS 300. He lives in France but returns each year for mot, and does not do a high mileage. I advised him to run the car on Bp ultimate or shell v power for a couple of hundred miles before the mot. Result, 4 years later the car still passes the mot each year with nothing else done, although each time his emissions worsen. Still it passed.
  12. Hurrah, just enjoy 😊 , and remember what you have just written, Rgds, Roger
  13. Hi Graham, you are quite right, the air struts can be renewed singly, however I understand the recommendation from Lexus is that they should be done in pairs. I think that you only hear about the ones that fail, which tends to amplify the problem. Cheers, Roger
  14. Just to put your mind at rest I replaced my battery with an 072 lead acid, not from Halfords but obviously the same recommended spec. Not had any problems, apart from running down because of lack of use in winter !! It is not expensive to put a code reader on to check, I wouldn’t have thought. As Colin Barber says usually oxygen sensors. Good luck.
