  1. Gen 4 RX450h FSport currently getting ~32mpg per tank, dropped from ~38mpg when it started getting cold in October. Overall average since I bought it mid July is 35.9mpg. Temperature makes a noticeable difference in consumption, even daily on the same commute, less than 4-5 degrees and I just achieve the 32mpg. Between 6 & 10 degrees and I get around 33.5mpg. Summer temperatures get me back the 38mpg. I struggle to raise the average but have seen a 45mpg trip but that doesnt happen often.
  2. Interior Cleaning 'Leather'

    Sorry Rayaans, I disagree. Seats should not need cleaning that often and when thye do the Gliptone does the job without too much effort. The conditioner works best for me sparingly on a microfibre cloth and doesnt go shiny if buffed well
  3. I believe the general wisdom is to carry a child rear facing for as long as possible to reduce the risk of injury (neck esp I think) however I have just had to put the seat forward facing for my 15 month old granddaughter as it was too tight a fit rear facing. She seems happier looking forwards too and it is far easier to get her in and out. Slightly concerned about what might happen in a crash but I drive even more sedately when she is with me, damn good for fuel economy as well LOL

    Gliptone products are really good and not overly expensive. Information here https://www.liquidleather.com/ But check ebay out too
  5. Problems Encountered with the LC500

    My 4RX had a really bad vibrating rattle from the rear seats. Cured by putting a double wrap of gaffer tape around the centre seat portion fixing bracket. I have recently aquired a very annoying front door/A pillar rattle when the car is cold (below 4 degrees) and going over bumpy surfaces. It disappears when the car warms up though.

    Do you have a wife that might chaufeur you? fortunately for me mine hasn`t driven any of my Lexuses for the last 16 years although she did manage to reverse into the CT200. It was my fault though as it shouldnt have been in the drive on a weekday when I was away on business....women!
  7. Problems Encountered with the LC500

    Really? my IS300H didnt have any and the gen 1 and 2 RX`s were pretty rattle free, just minor creaks
  8. Problems Encountered with the LC500

    I have developed a new rattle from the passenger door are on my RX but seems to be only when its cold. Its a very hollow plastic rattle and I cant find whats loose. Its driving me mad but not quite as much as the now cured vibration I had from the drivers door which being so close nearly made me get rid of the car. My wife says I am not normal and just ignore squaks and rattles. hmmmmm

    Its bloody annoying that the manual is so ambiguous and that the dealer clearly has no idea either. Hardly surprising if there is no consistency between models though. How lucky are you with you flash 3 zone luxury :-)

    Think I have worked it out. All works as per the instructions if.......the automatic air intake mode is NOT selected and the cabin temperature has reached the set value

    oops, beer not bear, what an idiot

    Its always good to keep a few bottles of bear handy for the journey
  14. RX450H Gen 4 SFlow

    But if the sflow light is on above the button then bag on floor behind the drivers seat should not make any difference and if you had opened the door after turning the car on then the light would be off. In any event it sounds like yours is behaving like mine or at least the temp display is always on?? I am going to raise it with Lexus Leeds next week to see if I can get a definitive answer as the instructions in the manual are both specific on how it should work but also vague on affecting factors. If current operation is normal fine but if not I will expect it fixing under warranty.

    Manual says this S-FLOW mode will be activated automatically according to the set temperature, outside temperature, etc. (→P. 547) However page 547 contains no information regarding outside temperature and sflow
