#236 of 305 Seat Belt Tensioner Rattle

The Seat Belt Tensionier on my 07 GS 350 AWD (I think that's what its called) on the car frame (next to my left ear) has started rattling. I took it to the dealer and they said they can hear anything. Has anyone else had this problem? It is really annoying since it is right next to my left ear.

Once in a while I heard a creaking noise. Around the area
you mentioned. Since it didn't happen all the time I can't pinpoint
the location. It happens only when the outside temp is around

I have 2002 GS300 with a similar problem on the driver side. I think your tech. finding of missing a body plug is the most logical answer to my problem as well. Can you please tell me where is the body plug is located.
#239 of 305 transmission shifting issues
Apr 23, 2009 (7:45 am)
I have a 2002 GS300-when I put in Drive the motor revs but the car won't move. This last about 15secs. Shift back in park seems to be okay. Also when driving car everything will be fine-get to a stop sign-car will hesitate when pulling out. The car has 60,000 miles. Had transmission flushed-new fluid. Fluid looked good.. Is this a transmission problem or fuel system problem? Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have a 2000 GS-400 and it does exhibit similar behavior occasionally. Also 60K miles, also had the trans fluid changed. This happens once in a while, almost feels like the transmission is not fully engaged in gear. I find that shifting to D while holding down the brake, and not releasing the brake until feeling the tranny fully engaged, usually prevents this from happening. It takes 1-2 seconds.
#242 of 305 Lexus GS 350 Pulling to the Left

I have a 2009 Lexus GS 350 AWD, that from day one at highway speeds pulls to the left. I have had it back to the dealer 3 different times. The last time they replaced the "Caster Bracket" on both sides. I still have the same problem. Has anyone else experienced the same problem. If so what was done to correct the problem.

I have a 07 gs 350 and my car pulls to the right. I have had it since it was new. in addition, since it has been pulling to the right(dealer had no answer for it). my tires on the right side are wearing on the inside about 25% faster than the rest of my tires. Dealer told me that was normal.(?????) Granted I drive 30k miles a year( I have 94k as of today) so for me to make a fuss with the dealer its hard especially when my miles are piling up faster than my warranty couild handle. i dont know what to tell you but it is annoying as heck. Keep your eye on your tire wear and have them rotated every 10,000 miles(flipped rotated, dealer will only rotate them front to back, have a reputable tire guy in your area cross flip them and you will pay 80 bucks instead of 200 at the dealer.. this will save you about 5k to 10k depending on your driving. sorry I dont have the exact answer but I feel you. Otherwise the car is great. hetting 30 mpg to 33 mpg on the highway. hit me back if you get it solved..
#244 of 305 Warped rotors
Jan 05, 2010 (9:10 pm)
I have an 07 gs 350 which I bought brand new, I have my brakes replaced quit a bit since i drive 30k miles a year. last year when i replaced my brakes about 10k miles into the brakes the rotors got warped. I do not drive hard and most of my miles are highway miles. I took it back to big o tires(which is were I have had all my cars serviced for many years), they turned the rotors and replace the pads for free.. the problem came back again and they turned and replaced again. Now the third time they replaced with all new rotors and pads. So the problem is gone(I hope) for now. My question is could there be any real possibility of damage to any other components within my brakes or suspension that would cause these new rotors to warp again? I know it will throw my alignment off but I am curious. Thx in advance.
