  12. welcome you can set the auto lock in settings also voice. I asked my dealer for a user manual and they ordered it for me ,took two wks, but found it invaluable plenty to look at ,polish
  13. steady there boys ,the car looks great, period, your pleased with it . it looks fine to me ,so lets stay nice and friendly . this is an informative sight and lets not start getting shirty .everyones opinion counts, some are more informed than others share your knowledge to the rest of us mortals .
  14. old newspapers are great at cleaning and polishing glass. I'm so doddery now that my other half cleans the inside of the car warm water/VINIGAR is what she uses, handed down through the female line, never argue screen always clear and bright never any residue left on glass .
  15. congrats rayaans , love the rose leather ,that's what I wanted in my GS 300h , but lost out to her indoors! as she says you drive and watch the road. hope you post some nice picks when you've valeted it properly .
  16. very nice and nostalgic, mine was AM db2/4 or Alvis td 21 convertible 1962 lovely car local doc had one .wouldn't sell when I came out of forces .now I just keep dreaming
  17. hi I would check on honest john regards warranty claims and electric gremlings my nephew ,bough one [big works bonus] had it for 2 years . It was in garage 7months twice called me to pick him up[ RX450h] he now runs GS, that's why I changed after driving his GS . any way good luck with car hope you have deeper pockets than with the Lexus .ps pick up was when he broke down ?
  18. i have 1864 miles on clock now car getting better the more I use it, tank readout on dash gives me 48.7 this is on last run to scarborough at 60mph car with just me and wife . only fault was noise from tyres [standard dunlops 17 inch] this was due in most part from bad road surface, bonus on run found the newly improve dab service in this part of Yorkshire gave exelent sound with NO fade. polish
  19. Hi ALAN my man at hull says the beeps are speed camera's,allso the last 2 GS models have it fitted so you should have it didn't know if it could be turned off .B
  20. hi Rado , I had the same feeling that something was holding me back . I did a few checks and came up with the hold button was active even when I had set off,[I thought it self released] I pressed the button again and the car speeded up ?. I tried it again same thing. don't no if yours will react the same but worth a try
  21. Alan , hi been reading manual but cannot find reference to beeps, rang local dealer but had no idea, the chappy who is clued up about the system was off work. next time in hull will pop in for a coffee and ask again, he's very good ,My RX which I traded in did nit have this on the system [2013] so it may be only on the latest models. will let you know when I find out.regards polish ps enjoy your holls
  22. thank peter, never though of speed camera's should be safe from the greedy , never speed with the kids in the car.was heavy traffic so wasn't going fast.
  23. hi guys, just took grandkids back to skelmersdale, going down m62 j27 leeds I got 2 quick beeps through the audio. This happened twice more about 5 miles apart. this was both going and coming back,checked manual but could not find any reference to this ,car still new to me ,still finding things out.my old rx did not have this on ,any idea's what this is. thanks in anticipation. polish
  24. I think I must have a very well set up car ,it holds the road a lot better than the RX it replaced. Before I moved to Lexus I ran Volvo for many years last one was S80 fine car. theGS is on a par with theS80 but is a lot quieter. The only time I have had a noisy ride so far was a patch on the M18 very old course surface, wind noise was an issue for me in the RX but this car very quiet, I have not seen the lux version so carn't comment, but my three gandkids fit ok,thats all i'm botherd about . my onley criticism so far ,may be i'm wrong but it could do with larger electric moter,better qualified people will no dought tell me so .
