#336 of 378 Re: Poping sound [jccai1]
Oct 17, 2009 (7:46 pm)
Sorry for not posting a follow up to my post. Yes the noise is gone. Over 1K miles with no popping sound. The dealer said they took one suspension piece off my car and put it on a loaner car until they eliminated the suspension. After everything was tested and my car was still making the popping sound they discovered it was the nut that held the engine mount. Two months in the shop for a nut....

Is there a recall for the floor mat problem?

Yes - there is a recall on IS floor mats. My belief is that it is a recall of the carpet floors mats, and not the Lexus rubber ones which "hook" to the floor. I understand that there has been at least once accident where the carpet floor mat was pushed up under the accelerator pedal and caused the driver to loose control. A friend with an IS250 took her car in for service tnad the dealer removed the floor(s) from her car while it was in. That being siad, I havenot received a formal ecall notice yet and am not sure what Lexus plans on replacing them with.

#341 of 378 Tire pressue monitors
Dec 11, 2009 (5:44 am)
We had a week of very cold weather here last winter. Tire pressure monitor light came on and was on for a week. Once I realized that it was the temperature that was causing it I ignored it. Light went off the next week when it warmed up a little.

i have a 2008 IS 250 AWD and need new tires. i currently have bridgestone potenza re92 and i am not happy with the wet handling ability. tire selection is limited in this speed rating. 225 45 17 91V. any recommendations on dunlop sp sport 5000 or continental contiprocontact tires or any other tires.

I would stay away from Dunlop - I had SP 5000's on my GS and they kept getting punctures. Very fragile tires. I have Yokohama Avids V4S now and they are excellent in dry and wet, average in snow. Very sturdy tires - no damage whatsoever after 25K miles and they still have a lot of tread left.

i have yokohama avid w4s they were much quieter and handle much better in the snow than the bridgestone potenza that came with the vehicle.
#345 of 378 coolant tank hose resting on drive belt
Jan 16, 2010 (11:21 am)
I own a 2002 IS300 and have had trouble with the coolant tank hose resting on the drive belt. It started with a rattling/swishing sound in the passenger side of the dash. When the mechanics checked it out, they found that the hose had been cut because of the drive belt. This was back in 2004 and the hose was replaced, free of charge. It is happening once again and I'll be taking my car in on Monday. The mechanic said the hose shouldn't have been on the drive belt. I believe this to be a defect in the car and I don't believe I should pay for this. Anyone else with this problem?
