Just received it-what a vehicle!! Currently at the dealer for the 60k service-OUCH!
I read the manual, and pardon me for sounding like the FNG, but I have 2 ?'s
1) I know this vehicle is AWD, but does that mean its always in 4h (unless I shift to 4L) according to the shifter on the center console?
Is it AWD (and the center console is in N) until I shift it manually into either 4H or 4L??
2) There are 2 sections of flexible, open-ended, black tubing (1 is about 3 feet long-the other is much longer) that are found under the velcro seal in the floor in front of the 3rd. seats. Both tubes are 2"-3" in diameter. 1 section that's under that velcro, is bolted to the metal flooring and contains very thickly braided copper colored wire? The other has the same enclosed wire, but starts under the 2nd. row seats and ends in front of the 3rd. row seats??
What are these for? Are they supposed to be there and if so, should they be connected to each other?

When you quote others you should clearly spell out the source even if it is "just" a press release. Copyright protection is involved.

The truck is always in AWD.
I've never noticed the tubing you speak of. I'll check mine and let you know. As long as it is in for the 60k service why not just ask the dealer.

The LX470 has a FULL-TIME 4wd system. It is always in 4wd. The transfer case is ALWAYS in 4-HI. This means that all 4-wheels are getting power at the same time. But the center diff is OPEN; thus allowing for rotational differences between front and rear axles.
When off-roading, you would LOCK THE CENTER DIFF, which would force front and rear wheels to spin at same rate...thus, do NOT lock the center diff on dry land.
4-LO is for torque multiplication. It is helpful in off-roading and launching your boat.
#811 of 1476 Does LX470 have the sulfur smell seen in 4runners and GX470?? n/t

No sulfur and not the least bit of vibration at any speed. I'll bet the sulfur is more tied to winter addatives and not the truck. Some Lincoln limos I've been in have it and the drivers say it's only a winter occurance. It's reading about that vibration that bothers me. I hope they resolve the GX problem ASAP. Lexus has far to bullet proof a reputation.
