  1. Well It’s gone and I am so glad. I picked the car up on the 23rd of March 07 (traded 21 April 11) and since then it has been back to the dealers more times than I can remember. Here is a list of what I can remember for warranty I had done on my IS250 sport • Drivers seat had a big knife mark down the back. apparently caused by the chap who took the plastic cover off seat when completing the PDI • 1st attempt to rectify rattle problem from behind dash • 2nd attempt to rectify rattle from behind dash • DVD playback stopped working since 2nd attempt at fixing rattle • DVD playback 2nd visit and Rattle 3 visit • DVD playback and rattle 4th vist • Sat Nav needed new ariel, stopped working • 1st to 2nd gear notchy • Clutch number 1 • Rattles from passenger side (glove box) • New set of alloys due to corrosion • 1st to 2nd gear notchy • Clutch number 2 • Rattle from gear lever • Heated front seats not working. • 1st to 2nd gear notchy again • Clutch number 3 • Rattles from behind Dash again 4th year of ownership out of warranty the clutch was on it’s way again, as so were the replacement alloys. Replaced with this BMW 123d M-Sport
  2. Had my 250 sport in today for its 40k service was offered a new service pack for £700 for the next 3 services is the a reasonable price ?
  3. Ive got a 2007 sport MM and noticed 1 of the wheels has started corroding, this might sound dumb will they just repair the wheel or replace it, if replace it will they replace all 4 or just the one thats knackered.
  4. ok bit of an update........ 6 weeks on.................. been away with work and on holiday. Car seems ok no rattles whatsover !!!!! (now that temating fate) they gave me an RX350 for 4 days which was very nice :D so far so good.
  5. I was thinking of writing Lexus GB a letter do you think this would get all my problems sorted. P.S The only good thing is that they give me a RX400h as a courtesy car
  6. Yes Iam using Lexus Stockport Any idea if Lexus Manchester or Bolton is any better ?
  7. Here goes I have an 07 IS 250 Sport with ML. I picked the car up on the 23rd of March and since then it has been ack to the dealers 6 times ! for warranty work. Drivers seat had a big knife mark doen the back. apparently caused by the chap who took the plastic cover off seat when completing the PDI 1st attemp to rectify rattle problem from behind dash 2nd attempt to rectify rattle from behind dash DVD playback stopped working since 2nd attemp at fixing rattle DVD palyback 2nd visit and Rattle 3 visit DVD playback and rattle 4th vist booked in for thursday Now Iam getting a little ****** off to say the least is this really what I should expect from buying a Lexus ? The car as been off the road now for 10 days as everytime the car goes in they need it for 2 days.
  8. Thought would just say hello. just ordered a IS250 sport in Argento Ice with MM for delivery in march. My current car is a Honda Civic Type R which as been superb over the past 4 years but wanted somthing with a bit more comfort and lots of toys (I get electric windows and mirrors on the civic and thats it !!!!) I am thinking of taking the optional service plan Lexus Stockport have quoted me £622 for 4 services which sounds reasonable, as A Honda service was costing me around the £250 mark. Is this a good price ? What would a normal service cost ? Also what is GAP insurance the dealers have given me figures but don't really know much about it. Thanks
