Q: Is there a legal way to update Lexus Navigation System without going to a dealer?
I own a Lexus LS460, but a really hate to be suckered, when dealer charges $350 for navigation update, while it only costs about $70 to update any other "off the shelf" navigation system.
Perhaps, someone knows the company the manufactures Lexus Nav. System?
A: There is not much need to upgrade the Nav system in any car. If your life depends on how accurate are the maps, is a must do. If you use it to go grocery, mall, restaurant and drive around town in places that you know. Is not really a need.
I drive across the country quiet a bit. I have not seen a must have need for a Nav system. The disc are updated once a year, so if some changes, you have to wait a year to get a new update.
I just borrowed a car this passed weekend with a Nav system and I liked better the hands free bluetooth that was on it better than the Nav system.
Q: How much does it cost to replace the leather interior in a 1997 lexus sc400 Is the leather good quality?
is it difficult to replace or recover the front seats of a 1997 lexus sc400. If you replace old stained torn leather front seats, will the quality of the leather be as good as the original? Do lexus dealerships do this work?
A: With leather you really get what you pay for. Cheap leather well...is cheap in quality. I think it will cost you alot to start replacing leather on the seats. A better bet, where the cost can be immediately known, is to get some good seats out of another lexus that is being wrecked. Then simply a matter of bolting into your vehicle.

Q: Does anyone know of a good Lexus or Japanese Import shop or mechanic in Lexington, Kentucky?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good, trustworthy mechanic or mechanic shop in Kentucky that works on Lexus cars. I know the obvious place is the Lexus dealership, but I have heard about a lot of people getting charged for extra stuff and charged outrageous prices. Of course that can happen anywhere, but I know if it happens at Lexus, that it'll cost me a whole lot more than the average place.
A: My husband and I have had 3 Lexus vehicles over the years (have 2 currently). We've always used the Lexus dealership in Nicholasville for maintenance and never been overcharged or had them try and talk us into anything. I've even had two minor things comped. They are very honest. On my last visit I was talking about whether to change from my Lexus RX to a Lexus ES or Toyota Avalon. The staff was very upfront and said while they are comparable, the Avalon was the better car.
For auto body work we use Auto Sports Collision Care Incorporated on Industry Pkwy in Nicholasville (859-885-4016) Very nice, honest, and quick. Work well with insurance companies so you don't have the headaches.

Q: How do I fix a broken automatic windshield wiper on a Lexus ES330?
I have a 2004 Lexus ES330, just bought it used. I love it but the goofy automatic windshield wiper setting doesn't seem to work at all. (Why anyone would want an automatic raindrop sensor is beyond me, but I digress). Any ideas on how to troubleshoot it before I take it to the Lexu$ dealer? Thanks!
A: Usually when the windshield is replaced the automatic wiper
sensor is installed without a a gel pad, or incorrectly. If not then the sensor is bad. This part is best installed by a Lexus
technician, and is a dealer only item, ie it can only be purchased through lexus.
Q: How to turn off a 2008 Lexus ES350 that is in motion?
HI I would like to know for my mom how you would turn off her 08 Lexus ES w/ Push button start if her car were to have a stuck or failed gas pedal. I've driven down our street and I've pushed the off button and the car does not turn off. The car goes into neutral fine, but I can't kill the engine. Anyone?
A: If your mother experiences a stuck pedal, put the car in neutral. If she turns the car off while in motion, she will lose her power steering and power brake. (you can turn the car off while it is running by holding the start button for 3 seconds, but not recommended.)

Q: Why would you pay 30k for a Lexus when you can get the same car- a Toyota for way cheaper?
What is the deal? Toyota and Lexus both use the same cheap quality parts, just because Lexus reputation is so high as a luxury car doesn't make it better than other luxury cars. For example an Infiniti M45 or an Audi's a typically around the same price as Lexus's and they use way better parts.
A: I look at it the same way. Also, why would I want to buy a car for 30k when I can buy a decent - in shape house - for the same price, put 30k more into it and turn it around and sell it for 100k? Then use that money to buy a car that is 3 yrs old, 60k miles with 2yrs left on the the warranty for about 5k and walk away with money left over. When cars become the prices of small homes or 6 yrs worth of house payments, it's definitely time to rethink the economy in which we live.
Sorry for the ramblings, but I hope you see what I am getting at.
