  1. @Texas No nothing was picked up on the MOT and Service. I did ask them to full check the car. But they said that all the bushes etc are fine and there is no wear in them. One thing they did do was clean the throttle body because of carbon build up.
  2. I could be looking to sell my 2009 IS250 SE-L. if you're still interested?
  3. @johnatg Thanks for the information, John. As you have said it could be anything, its due to go in for its MOT & Service on the 3rd Jan with Lexus. I will get them to check it all over completely, as something is not right. I know on a Mini I had, that needed, Lower Control Arm Bushes, Track Rod Ends, Tie Rod Ends and Track Rod Arms. I sold the car before that needed doing at it was close to a grand in parts and labour. The car was only several hundred pounds more. Do you think any of that will be covered under warranty?
  4. It goes in for a service in January with Lexus, I will ask if they can take a look.
  5. Hi Paul, Tyre pressure is all okay, they were checked when the temp started to drop. Also checked last week when I filled up. Not mechanically loose, but when you move the steering, there is a delay as you say in the road to wheel action. I had similar issues with another car and it turned out to be the bushes. So I was just wondering if anyone has had similar issues.
  6. Evening, I am just wondering if anyone has had the same problem on their IS250. When I am driving the steering feels a little loose. I am thinking either the Control Arm Bushes or D Bushes. Has anyone else experienced this?
  7. Just reading through this, the car is working great. I understand that its a used car, so I don't expect it to be perfect. I spent a lot of time looking for the right car and decided that if I were to get one that I would be better getting it from the main dealer. Yes, that particular car may be a bit more than a private seller, but I also wanted one that had a full Lexus service history, so that I could check what had been done on the car, and have all the paperwork to account for any work that it had done. I also managed to get 12 months warranty with the car too, plus all the wheels refurbished, and all brand new tyres. Also, any issue I have had have been raised to the main dealers, with the matter being solved. The alternator was covered under warranty, but the battery was not.
  8. Car was booked in today and it was sorted. Battery and Alternator where replaced.
  9. Lexus £105 for a battey supplied and fitted. No bad considering the Bosch one is £95 on eBay. Plus any issues I can go back the dealer. I will let you know the outcome tomorrow.
  10. Your right the battery is not covered. I thought a battery was checked as either part of the mot or service?
  11. It was fine when I bought it, just this last week it’s been at fault. Get a new battery Friday and get the dealer to check the car over, so it’s a 100%
  12. So the battety is indeed the original. The date is 28/07/08 but the car is a 2009 car. Should this not have been swapped when I bought the car?
  13. Thanks for that, I want them to check the car before assuming its the battery. Oh right, that's not very good on EuroCar Parts, its what comes up when I enter my reg. Giving customers the wrong information. I will have a look for that battery now, what you recommended. Thanks https://www.eurocarparts.com/068-car-batteries
  14. It's under warranty, seeing as the nearest europarts to me is by the dealer, I would rather go there, as I don't want to get a new battery and its not fixed the problem. I am also wondering should I even pay for one, as I bought it from the main dealer, so should it not have been checked, as part of the service & mot is it not?
  15. It's going to the dealer Friday for an investigation, rather than go to Halfords (don't trust them tbh), just to see whether it actually needs a new battery, as the AA guys have said that it seems to be fine, but the dealer where I bought it from could not tell me when it was last changed.
