  1. Funny you should ask this as I got an email today, asking me if I wanted to extend mine. It’s 10 years and 140,000 miles according to Lexus Cambridge. They’re also offering two years for the price of one, which is mighty tempting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Taken from the Lexus blog this morning, good news confirmed for connectivity fans. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No issues, just maintenance. 2 front tyres and just had to get brake pads and discs alongside a service so it cost over £800. But full Lexus history is worth it long term, especially with the hybrid health check extending the battery warranty. Sadly it has suffered war wounds because of it’s sheer size, one at my hands and 2 in car parks but they’re being sorted by Lexus SMART insurance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I have a 2010 SE-L Premier, with just shy of 100,000 miles. The air-suspension has proved unproblematic in the short time I’ve owned it (12 months, 20,000 miles) and in its history according to the My Lexus app. The comfort, luxurious, speed and sheer convenience make it a handy companion. However, I do find tight car parks a royal pain in the *****. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Editor of Auto Express also reporting it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Lexus UK put a tweet out yesterday which suggests it will. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. My RX450H is 9 years old and has covered almost 100,000 miles. It’s paint is, with the exception of swirl marks, as good as it left the factory. The bumpers haven’t peeled, even where I’ve got a bit close to a wall... Sounds to me, like an insurance company being an insurance company and talking a load of nonsense.

  8. I’ve got a 97000 mile, 2010 RX which lived most of its life in the Bolton/Stockport area and is now living in rural Cambridgeshire and I’m the 4th owner. I can’t speak for the northern roads - but ours are very poor. It has no squeaks of any sort (except the air suspension but They All Do That Sir) however it does have a couple of light creaks from the drivers door and the rear seat. The rear seat is easily silenced by pulling down the arm rest. The drivers door noise is easy enough to ignore. Considering it’s age this car has worn extraordinarily well. I’ve put almost 20,000 miles on it in 9 months and it’s taken those well. I have lived in the Fens and now west of Cambridge where the roads are shocking. Potholes, ruts, cracks and unexplained bumps. No matter how fast you hit the surprise ones that’s spring up overnight no new squeaks have been added to the cabin. It also has to regularly deal with ridiculously hard speed bumps. Every so often I hear an irritating rattle and it’s always something I’ve left in the cupholder. It seems a tough old beast and takes most things in it’s stride - however what I will say to qualify is, my previous SEAT had an equally hard life and undertook a higher mileage in my care and that didn’t have any squeaks, creaks or groans.

  9. This is a slightly biased response as I’ve done 20,000 miles in my RX in the last 9 months and about 550 miles in an NX courtesy car I had for a week. However, the RX is a superior car. The NX felt tiny inside, it’s boot being a particular disappointment and the ride quality of the one I had was pretty dismal. I averaged 39 mpg in the NX and in the same conditions (journey/weather/foot weight) in the RX I get 35/6. I initially really liked the look of the NX and sat in one of those in Lexus Leicester first. Once the salesman took me outside to sit in an RX the goal was set. Great levels of comfort, surprising turn of speed and looks great. Downsides of an RX for me are, fuel economy in slow moving traffic, the air suspension squeaks (apparently they all do this) and it is a bugger to park in congested areas.

  10. Yep, as above, if you press the camera select button on the wheel then use the mousepad (?) to click the auto button, this will stop happening. You will however always be able to use the steering wheel button (2 squares, bottom left) to turn it on if you ever need it. A. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have to agree with the majority and say that the nav built in to my 2010 RX is rubbish. I’ve used it twice and it just seemed very dim-witted, like every manufacturer system I’ve tried. I run Waze on my iPhone with a magnetic holder so the phone sits just below the screen. Live accurate updates and I already own a smartphone so don’t need to purchase an additional device.

  12. I knew it was in there somewhere! Glad to hear you got it sorted Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You can turn the flicking between screens off. I forget how, but I was being driven spare by it flicking back and forth and eventually found the setting. It’s called “last screen” or something like that. The random opening of the map when you push a button is apparently “as specified” I even booked mine in to the dealer for it and there was nothing wrong, “it’s just what it does” was essentially the report back.

  14. Although I have a 450h rather than a 400h, my experience chimes with yours. I do a lot of miles (between 1500 and 2000 a month) and my RX is perfect. Sure it’s a little thirstier than my previous car, but for it’s sheer bulk it’s very economical. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be when stuck in a traffic jam than sat in my sound-insulated, comfortable, silently gliding truck. Just buy a Lexus! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Another one for 390-400 miles a tank. Even in this much cooler weather it very rarely drops below 360 miles. The worst I’ve had was 330 and that was because I turned Eco Mode off and drove it like I stole it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
