Currently getting great fuel economy. Even stone chips on the hood have no rust. I have had to replace the battery twice. I am getting about 22 mpg driving round town is this normal. I know that's not true!! Mine currently sits at about 500km per tank, is this as horribly excessive as I think?? Steering has nice feel to it, and car feels planted to the road.
Same basic specs as the Cressida; straight 6 engine, limited slip rear end etc in a 4 door. I can never seem to get it to 9. ? It's the type of vehicle that can make or break a maker's reputation and bottom line, as well. ? Even on turning the traction control off, you can still feel the system working away, and it cuts power away from the back wheels. That E10 98 isn't as good as normal 98 for milage. General Comments: I have owned over 25 cars in my adult life, and albeit a 17 year old car, it still drives like new, handles great, very nimble, super easy to work on and do maintenance on. What fuel are you using, i swapped to 98 and i get easily 550km each tank im using 95.
The body still looks great. So just reset the meter and fill up the tank when it reach 600km, don't be afraid of running out of petrol. Upgrading your platinum plugs to Iridium will also help. You should be able to Do 50Km Comfortably after the fuel light comes on. I have to go out tonight to take my son to a football match which is about 60 miles round trip and bet i can do half of that before the light comes on. The Lexus was priced well, looked stylish and was filled with toys, more than you would get in your average 320.
When it's fill up time you put in how many miles you have done. Very few items have worn out. . It also works out how many miles per litre and shows graphs etc of all kinds of other stuff that you don't give a rats arse about! Had 10L left in the Tank. I am getting about 22 mpg driving round town is this normal.
It's a rocket that handles, does not break and has cheap insurance because it has 4 doors! The shocks failed before 150,000 miles and were replaced with Bilstein shocks best mod so far. I am getting about 22 mpg driving round town is this normal. So just reset the meter and fill up the tank when it reach 600km, don't be afraid of running out of petrol. The engine in the Lexus is a 2. I do think there may be a wheel alignment problem, I'll see to this soon + let you know if things improve at all. Nice switches were used, and give a reassuring clunk when they slot into place.
Hands down the most reliable car I have owned. Changed brake calipers and rotors twice. Its petrol, not magic dust. Well positioned and plenty of toys will keep you entertained, and if they don't, the speedo most definitely will. We always expect at least 600+kms before refilling. Then set your trip on your car. Its strange how much variation there is in cars Being a motor trader all my cars are for sale as is the Lexus and i never put more than £30 worth of petrol in at a time,reason being if somebody rang me now to come and see the car i don't want to be giving £80 worth of fuel away.
It's just a calculator really but it converts litres to gallons for you and obviously it isn't completely accurate but more accurate than that blooming mpg needle. So just reset the meter and fill up the tank when it reach 600km, don't be afraid of running out of petrol. The car came to market in Japan as the Toyota Altezza and the U. If its a thick old 10w-40 then by switching to 5w-30 you can improve economy by a few %. I wish this car was still in production and I would buy it again. Driving position is designed with the driver in mind. The car is no worse than any other of its type In the last week i have put £40 worth of petrol in at £113.
Very comfy and easy to find a nice position in them. No rust on any body panel. Replace all fuel injectors as 1 or 2 were leaky and causing hydrolock if shut down quickly after cold start up. No major faults in my ownership. Never seen mine over 30 ever! Have learnt that premium grade fuel 95octane plus gives cheapest running. The is300 is a Kanto very important engineered Toyota Lexus. I am still experimenting but the best so far is shell 95 non ethanol which gets around 550 kms.
