2002 IS300 Sportcross. I picked up this car about 2 weeks ago, after I saw it on Auto Trader.com. When we picked up the car it came with one master key, and the valet key (no other keys at this time), the original first aid kit was still in place(I had heard this became souverners for original owners)
About a week after we bought it, we got 2 more keys in the mail... the second master key AND the wallet key!
4 days later - I went in to my local dealer and asked him for all the service records, my SprtX has seen EVERY service at my local dealer, even oil changes! While waiting for the service records I went into the showroom and asked for the specifics of my car - standard and optional equipment. The dealer ran a "Vehicle Inquiry Report"... I now have the vin, the engine number, the interior and exterior codes(yes know they are on vin tag), what isn't on the vin tag... key code... original selling dealer code... original ship date, retail sales date, price (retail AND dealer!) a complete listing of equipment. Besides all the standard equipment mine has the leather/ecsaine interior(w/ heat) the LSD and VSC(booo) along with the power sunroof. MSRP was $35929.00
Does anyone have the Lexus service operation codes? Not download codes.... not chassis codes... These are the codes that appear next to repairs... they are usually more descriptive then the printed description... also the warranty work has ONLY codes..... again these codes represent repairs(all types) I ask this question because I do see some Eng Diag lines as well as one line early on in the history that says Auto Trans. I assume this is likely the tranny shifting/not shifting issues. Two other lines... show frt sus(I assume this is the "squeak" over speed bumps)
PS - the chassis code is JCE15W = for the 2JZ powered Altezza gita, would that be the same for the Sportcross??? Usually Toyota chassis codes ending with a 5 means it is a 4wd type car (AE95 = All Trac Corolla, ST165/185/205 = All Trac/GT4 Celica, SV25 = All Trac Camry) but it doesn't ALWAYS mean 4wd..... AE85 was a lower powered model, using 3A engine, of the AE86 which used the 4A engine
Edit... 15 was an awd model... I'm then thinking the Sportcross is JCE10W
