Because a few of us have noticed gap on the dashboard, we've decided to start a specific thread to those, please post your observations and any pictures. Some may say we're being overly picky, but this IS Lexus and it wasn't uncostly! Let's keep tabs on this so if we go to the dealer we'll be armed with info.

I too am in the same boat so to speak. There is a gap on the left side of the center console where the dash meets the NAV cover. Looks like I am posting this a few months after the others.. Were you able to get the issue resolved?

I need to check on that gap if there is any. . .
Great. Keep us posted. I will be taking mine in Aug 15 to have them "fix" it (hopefully). I'll post before and after shots as that date gets closer and arrives.

anyone else have a slight random creaking noise that comes from the drivers B pillar/seatbelt area?? I can always hear it from my left ear and can never pin down the exact location. Also anyone have the 3rd brakelight cover squeak and rattle when you have the stereo semi loud?

I DO!
just after 3 weeks of purchase it started. I took it in and they fixed it, but the fixed lasted about 3 months. Now it is back; not as bad but it is there.
I took the car back and since the rattle happens in really bad and hard road they couldn't "find it"

Annoying cracking noise in the dash

Mine is a 07 Starfire pearl IS 250. I am currently experiencing that cracking noise from the dash, specially when I use the car after it has been under direct sun for a while. As temperature lowers with the AC on, so the cracks, but are always present. I talked to the dealer about it and they told me I was the first customer bringing up the issue. I will bring the car to the dealer for diagnosis and warranty repair, and it seems that there is a potential prod-mod coming from Lexus related to this matter.

i never had that cracking noise in my car but rattles started occurring. so the other day i brought it in to have the rattles fixed which the dealer says it's fixed (not that i've had time to pick it up yet). but i've got a loaner vehicle that does have that cracking noise and it's utterly the most annoying sound ever.

almost all of these problems should be covered under warranty so if anyone has large gaps in the dash or cracking noises, the warranty covers it.

This is on every car. Any make model, on any dealership. I sell Hondas and noticed this as well. Looking further into it. Because the bumpers are made of plastic, and the hood, fenders, etc are all metal. They are going to be very very close. But not perfect. It is usually noticeable on white colored cars.
It takes bright sunlight and a close eye. But if you look, you'll notice a very slight difference. Again this is most noticeable, or only ever noticeable on 'white' colored cars.

I've experience the cracking noise from the dash. The sound is like a stone when it hits your windshield. My car is a 2009 and of course the service rep claims he's never heard of this issue before. I'll be taking it in for repair ASAP cause that noise is irritating.

There have been lots of cases of that noise. Some hear it often and some, like me, only hear it once in a while. Sometimes it gets fixed ok and sometimes not. I think they remove part of the dash and put tome padding in a certain area.
