There was a TSS on squeaking: NV001-06 FRONT SEAT SQUEAK NOISE. Maybe their will be one on this as well. Lexus seems to be pretty good about resolving issues.

First, I purchased my IS250 November of 05. I have been experiencing the squeaking noise from the dash too. Not so much in the Summer but it was driving me crazy in the winter (I live in Chicago). I had my Lexus in the shop approximately 5 times between Nov and March. The problem has never been resolved. I anticipate having the same problems as the cold weather approaches. Regarding the brakes. I too had squeakey brakes around 6000 miles. Lexus replaced the front pads and rotors. This is something that will never be recalled but if you complain about it, they should replace the front brakes. Just don't wait until you have 15000 miles. Has anyone out there had the squeaking from the dash fixed? If so, how was it resolved? It drives me nuts! And regarding people who say that we did not purchase a Maybach, that is complete nonsense! We all still paid a lot of money for this car, my 98 Honda Accord with 120000 miles does not make any noises at all. I think it is a joke that Lexus has not figured a way to fix my particular problem after being in there 5 times.

totally. and they dared to say that it's normal. i called them 3 times, went there, and they looked at it, and said it's normal. WTF!!! they better fix my brake. I'm pissed off. my brake still has the squeaking sound when i brake. i guess my upgrade to a GS in the future is not gonna come true. Lexus sucks. quality goes down, the cost of the car goes up.... hurrrrraaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!! yaaeee to the stupid consumer... they believe us... it's normal and they give us the money... that's what going through lexus CEO & managers... they don't care... they got the big pay checks...

Very sorry to hear that, guys! I picked up my IS 350 on March 4th and haven't experienced any of these problems. Have you brought your cars to different dealerships?

Yes I have, I have been to two different dealerships. I have taken it to the dealership that I purchased my Lexus at twice and another Lexus dealership in Chicago three times. Both have not resolved the squeaking noise.

call lexus and complain.. i hope many ppl would complain about this problem.. which is becoming a 'normal' issue to them, to count as something not needed to fix. i hope the fix it before something happen to you.. like it fails, and when the check it and it looks 'ok'.
if i have to live w/ the noise, i'm gonna complain til they fix it.

is3fifty...I too had the squeak coming from my sunroof...it was coming from the back of the sunroof where the rubber meets the metal. My dealer here in Atlanta put some type of rubber lubricant on the rubber and the sound is absolutely gone. This was back in April (got the car in late Feb.). No problems since. I often wonder if they did more than they are telling me since it seems the lubricant would've worn off by now...

Is the Atlanta dealer Nalley or Hannesey? I bought my IS350 from Nalley Roswell.

Im debating between the IS and the G35. I certainly wouldnt wanna spend 40k for car that has squeeky breaks...
