problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Dash becomes sticky, tacky, and otherwise gross. Totally unacceptable in any vehicle much less a Lexus.

problem #1

Mar 102010

IS 300

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

the rubber part of the dash has turned sticky and tacky. i have searched the internet in found that there others that have the same problem and Lexus has done nothing about it ..when i call our local dealer they claim they have never heard of such.

Update from Mar 23, 2012: UPDATE....took advice from Matt L........I currently have an 05 IS300. Prior to this car I owned an 02 Honda Accord. When I had the Accord the center console had the same problem with the "melting". I was able to remove it with Denatured Alcohol. You can buy this at a marine store (like West Marine). It worked great on the Accord and have since used it on my IS. While using it, get a lot of rags, and it will look like your dash is coming off, but it pulls the crud off. I live in FL and have had no ill effects from doing this. Hope it helps.........It worked but i would suggest being very careful because the stuff will take the shine off of the vinyl ......use q-tips in tight places.....

thank you matt for the help
