  1. Mine was in with Lexus Chester last week for warranty work. They wanted permission to download the ecu data for Lexus to use for product improvement work. Seems they want mpg data etc on the 2.5l engine.

     

    Mine is not showing as needing the recall. 2015 IS300h advance 40,000 miles.

     

    Could this be the “recall”?

  2. My front caliper was seized last year and replaced under extended warranty. I paid for new disks and pads (both sides)

     

    It’s going in tomorrow for air con compressor replacement and regas. Again under warranty. I will have got my money’s worth from the warranty.

     

    65 plate 40,000 miles.

  3.  

    My AirCon has started to make a strange noise. A sort of hiss inside the cabin and a louder buzzing from under the bonnet. It stops when I turn the AC off. Could the seal have gone or any other ideas?

     

    IS300h, four and a half years old, 40,000 miles. I always have the AC on. I have 6 months left on the extended warranty.

     

     

    Thanks

  4. What are the differences between the eCVT and the Honda i-MMD system?

     

    It seems as though the Honda system has a fixed gear when in engine drive mode and drives the wheels via an electric motor when in hybrid mode. Does anyone have experience of how this compares to the eCVT

     

    Thanks

  5. My commute is about 7 miles and usually takes 30 minutes at an average speed of about 14 miles per hour. The mpg varies between about 30 in the winter to 50 in the summer. My average mpg is 45. In the winter when the engine is cold the engine runs to warm up the car so the fact I am stuck in traffic with the engine on is not much help to the mpg.


    Thanks
