Lexus Mark Levison sound system

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Mar 2014

With regard to the radio amplifier it's disappointing to hear that a problem that has been around for three years has not been fixed. It would seem a relatively simple one to fix, just fit a different sound system. I'm surprised Toyota has not done this on a high-end car like the Lexus. As for the brake pad wear sensor, it is also disappointing that there is not a sensor to let you know when pads are worn out. I would agree that sensors are needed on all wheels, or at least they should be fitted to the wheels most appropriate for our market.

Critical load rating

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Oct 2003

The load rating is critical to maintain. There is no legal requirement to fit a particular speed-rating tyre to any car. The Lexus was fitted with Z-rated tyres for those situations when it's driven fully laden at its speed potential for extended periods. You're right, it's something that's not legally possible here, so choosing a tyre with a lower speed rating is good advice.
