Had the brake squealing fixed a week ago.
Dealer thought Lexus came out with a new pad to fix the brake
squealing noise, but new shims instead.
So I requested alternative pads to fix the excessive brake dust.
Dealer installed new shims & new pads. So far the squealing noise has gone away.
Dealer also serviced 2 recalls (fuel delivery pipe & rear booster
pin). Lexus also paid for a full gas tank for fuel delivery pipe

drop me a note and I can forward you a name of a guy at Westside who can beat that deal and offer better after the sales service for you. I bought both of mine from there.

Dear Shengh/board members:
Hope you are doing great. What are some of reasonable offerings for NEW left over 08 gs350 [~100s mile] RWD, no nagivations. Does 42.5K Out the door sound reasonable in Dallas/Forthworth areas?
thanks very much for your kind replays
please email me if you have further questions/reasonable offerings

Just took delivery on '09 gs 350. Already noticed the windshield noise on both sides when hitting any bumps. Also, some unexpected dust residue on rear panel behind tire. Could this be from the infamous brake issue?
Biggest question is how and to whom to seek resolution. Obviously the dealer. But, what advice is out there on how to avoid the potholes in this discussion.

42.5K sound high for an 08 GS350, even though it's new. I bought an 09 about 6 weeks ago in So. Florida - RWD - no navigation - but with all the other "options" that come in on the cars for 44.6K (which included dealer fees). Good luck.

Did the dealer fix it under warranty or did they make you pay? Mine has the same issue and it looks like the front pades have worn down much more than the rear pads and the fronts had a lot of excessive dust.

I was thinking of buying a GS300, but when I went to the dealer to test drive one, I found that it wasn't as comfortable as I thought it would be. Is this a case where I was expecting too much because I've read so many good reviews about the vehicle, is it my imagination or are the 300 series just bumpy rides. I felt almost every bump on the road. Does this have something to do with the run flat tires, are they making the vehicle more bumpy. The car was quiet, but bumpy.
Have other folks had the same experience, or did I simply get a bad vehicle. I read so may great things about comfort and smoothness that I thought the vehicle would glide, but I felt a very shaky bumpy ride. Do I need to go test drive a couple others or is this the way it is?
