My IS 250 AWD started rattling after about 5000 miles. I have decided to live with it since the biggest rattle is in the dash and I believe if they take the entire dash apart to repair it, I may end up having more rattles after they put it back to gether. It is a wonderful driving car, however do not believe that i would ever buy another one.

I have the same car and it had all the same problems. First there is a service bulletin out on the dash rattle. That was taken care of under warranty. I hear a rattle every once in awhile but for the most part it's gone. Right after that was fixed the car developed another rattle that I thought was under the far left side of the dash. The dealer replaced a part of the seat belt assembly and that went away. Again, it was taken care of under warranty. There are still little squeaks and rattles but for the most part the car is quiet. I couldn't live with the noise and had to do something about it.
Selling the car for a BMW is trading a headache for an upset stomach. I did just the reverse and sold my new 2003 325xi after the gas gauge wouldn't work and then the fix caused it to not start on demand. At least my Lexus has not let me down. Ironically after a couple of frustrating days with the IS rattles I wrote the corporate offices of Lexus and stated that as frustrating as the BMW was at least the maintenance was free. I'm still getting free oil changes... Good luck.

I have rattling noise that come from the left driver seat air vent. The air vent kind a loose, when I push in and hold tight the noise goes away.
Anyone know if they can fix this ?? and how much ??
