#1422 of 1474 Gear Shift Issue
Aug 09, 2007 (11:02 pm)
Recently, my 2005 Lexus LX470 was parked on a slightly sloped parking spot. My gear was in "P" position when I exited the car, but I did not engage my side-brake and I left my engine on to keep the AC running (I was just picking up something quick). I walked away few yards when I needed to return to my car to get something. When I opened the door and with my body quarter of way in the car, the car started to roll backward down the slope (my foot got caught under the tire and I fell to the ground). It rolled until it hit another parked car. Has anybody heard anything similar to this? Does Lexus LX470 have problem with gear shifter?

I own a 2006 LX470 , regardless where I park I always engage the parking brake . Even inside the garage.
I have never heard anyone having your problem.
Perhaps you should check the lexusownersclub.com
Hope this can be helpful

Dude, I have been this and other LX/LC boards for years and never came across something like this. Either your transmissions lock (P position is not working) or you selected either R or N which cause your truck to move back.
That or ......

Looking to replace OC Dunlops after less than 24,000 mls.
Any recommendations ? Any experience with NITTO 404?

Michalin MTX? I'm at 144,000 and still have a lot (20,000+ miles) left on my third set. 55-60k out of each set.

I am on the same boat , just went past 22000 miles and these Dunlops are ready to bite the dust.
Michelin is my only choice , but my only question would be which one ?
#1428 of 1474 LX470 Catalytic Converter Problem
Mar 04, 2008 (11:27 am)
I got my 2000 LX470 and was told by dealer that there is issue with the CAT.
It makes rattling sound around 2000 RPM or so and disappear beyond that.
LEXUS service thinks it's the honeycomb in the CAT getting loose and floating around that makes the sound.
The estimate to replace is about $ 2000 at LEXUS.
He suggested to go to Midas for around $ 180-200 ??
Does this sound about right?
Why so much different in price? Is there different quality in the product?
I know nothing about car except that I am not ready to chill out $2000 for this problem.
What other alternative things I can do to fix the problem? I am not even sure if it is really the CAT? Suggestions? Thoughts?

I have had noise in the front drivers seat of my 2007 LX470. Like a rumbling annoying wind noise. I have taken it to the dealership. They tried to fix it, but because the noise is "normal". They are saying they have done all they can. They tell me all LX470s have this annoying noise. My noise is inconsistent so it is difficult to pinpoint. The noise can happen at 50 to 60 miles in cruise mode.

I think they are feeding you a line of bull. Ask to drive other 2007s to see if they have the same noise, etc. then see what they come up with. Good luck.
#1431 of 1474 Rear Brakes on LX470
May 07, 2008 (12:35 pm)
Has anyone done the rear brakes on a LX470?? I am thinking about doing it myself. Is it worth it? Or is it a total Pain in the rear?? I have always done my own brakes with no problems on all of my American made cars. But my Passatt had to be towed in shamefully!! Was hoping someone could tell me what I am in for?
