  1. Now it’s getting warmer anybody noticed a buzzy type noise from the dash area on course surface roads (not bumpy) you can make it happen by putting the palm of hand under the dash overhang, the source of the noise is below the starter button and around the corner where the soft bit goes over the hard plastic.. I pushed a pice of felt about 3mm wide from the button around the corner up to the end of the soft bit of the dash. Pressed in with a credit card and soaked the felt in WD40. Job done. Hope it helps someone.
  2. Mine done Thursday. All ok, it was on and active so no issues. Mine was on the first boat to arrive. It is now on the PDI check so maybe they are all ok just not checked.
  3. If the car is locked when opening the tailgate it does not bleep but I does also unlock the car. When the car is already unlocked it bleeps for open and close. I had problems with the auto opening as I was waving my foot in an arc about the width of the number plate and it was very hit and miss to open. Read the manual and it specifically says the foot should go in and out in a kicking motion in the middle of the number plate. About a 2 second delay then bleep and open it comes or closes every time. Try that and do not forget the delay between you foot movement and the operation.
  4. Do you think the Japanese would know what “ooohhhh aaaarrrrrr is. We should send the Wurzels to Lexus. 😂
  5. Lucy Lexus does not understand a Bristol accent. Not one of the Lexus’s I have had with voice command have worked, even simple things like radio on or off does not work for me. I just does not work.
  6. I find the Lexus wording in the manual not easy to understand especially for us older less technical to follow. select magnifying glass symbol select favourites select add new select by addresses select Code box input post code and search select the bottom of the two identical codes select ok United Kingdom input a name then ok It will now be in your favorite list to select To delete a destination before you get there select the 3 dots in the bottom left corner select route delete is top right it it will then take you back to the menu screen It’s easy after doing doing a few times but I hope this is helpful. I have written it down and put it in the arm rest, not only does this put it your own words but will remind you if you do not use the satnav very often like me.
  7. Recall letters out for the eCall system. The set up and activation was not included in the PDI on some early deliveries. The letter suggests that it can be done over the phone by talking you through, apparently this is not the case, it has to go to the dealers. 15 minutes is all it takes. Had my letter today.
  8. No a/c button on or off. The only way to start the a/c is put it on auto.
  9. Am I missing something? Put the a/c on today using the auto button then varying the temperature setting. I cannot see how to turn the a/c off without going into the climate control, settings, turning it off. Turning off the auto button does not do it.
  10. Another 80 miles today on A and B roads driving steady, now up to 53mpg over 700 miles.
  11. That’s good, are you happy with that? Yesterday i did about 60 miles on B roads and some A roads. Driving like the pensioner I am, in eco mode I am now on 51.8 over my first 600 miles. I am very happy with that. one thing I have noticed about my UX is all the noises when the ignition is put on and today I was standing by the rear door when my wife turned off the car what a strange noise from the battery in the boot. Between a screech and a scape.
  12. Thanks, that is what I did today. Lucy Lexus (that’s what we call her) also pronounces the road numbers differently. For example the A4174 near us is now the “A four thousand one hundred and seventy four” and says please with some instructions. 😂
  13. Is there a setting to make the radio mute or quieten when a sat nav instruction is given. Did my IS do that, I think it did but I am sure somebody knows. Thanks
  14. I am getting 50mpg + or - 0.5 since picking it up. I use eco mode, very light right foot, both pensioners so mostly short journeys. Average speed around 25mph. Total 500 miles.
  15. Sounds like you are happy, same as me. On the satnav comment, I have reduced the contrast which takes some of the colour away and makes the white border stand out a little more. Definitely needs a colour setting.
