The thumbing noise is an out put if you hear it over the speakers.
So that means the problem is with a CD or cessette player that you must have that will not pop back to the raido mode

    But that makes no differance the the unit is sending OUTPUT to the speakers .The problem is in the raido not the wireing to it

SOURCE: fuel recommended for Lexus ES 350

92 or 93 octane. In my area of the country we have regular, super and premium thus the 92 or 93 octane fuel is called premium.  I would assume that this grade would be what you are calling super premium.  Basically it is going to take the best quality gas that they sell at the station.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for the opportunity to help you and thanks for an honest rating.  I hope you continue to use FixYa in the future for all of your automotive questions!

How do you fix a radio on a 2008 lexus es 350. Only sound from the speakers is a repeating thump from front speakers with the radio on or off?

If you have no radio repair places in your geographic area, I would type radio repair into the search engine of your computer, and you should find palaces that advertise that service for you.
I have used them, it works.
You have to take the radio out yourself and send it in.
God bless your efforts.

My Lexus ES350 isn't making any sound out of the speakers, but the radio/CD player is on. My Bluetooth hands free phone devise is also picking up calls, but no sound.

Take it to a stereo shop and consider rolling the repair into an upgrade to new speakers. They will test and if the radio / wires are bad just buy a new radio, etc.

My Lexus ES 350 (2007) will not start or turn over, couple of weeks back, the starter sounded like it was skipping or missing

Push the brake and check the power at the starter, if you have power at the starter, then the problem is with the starter, if not then the problem is with the switch at the brake.

Transmission flare

I'm thinking of buying a 2008 ES 350 and have read the transmission flare discussions on different websites. I wouldn't want to venture a guess as to what the chance is of getting a new ES 350 with a flare problem: 0.1%, 1%, 10%, 50%? If the ES 350 has a flare problem, what is the chance of it being a severe problem vs. a minor nuisance: 0.01%, 1%, 10%, 90%? I've read about other problems afflicting the ES 350 such as engine knocks, interior rattling noises, and wind noise. I'm sure the ES 350 has some minor problems too but those are the major ones I can recall. The easy answer for the potential buyer is to cross off Lexus from the list. Why take the chance? The ES 350 was easily my #1 choice in terms of features and value. I was attracted to the Lexus brand because my impression was that Toyota and Honda generally make the highest-quality under-$40K cars in the world. What would make more sense than buying from Toyota's "luxury" division? Car magazine journalists regularly write about "legendary Lexus quality." That leads to a contradiction: Why does Toyota have such a stellar quality reputation even though it has had ongoing FWD transaxle problems since 1999? Why can't Toyota figure this out? Shouldn't Toyota thoroughly test pre-production models instead of making its customers responsible for quality assurance? Replaced transmissions, buybacks, amazing. It's hard to figure out the precise truth and a manufacturer is probably going to avoid transparency in this kind of situation, so I think I should move on to other makes and models. Any suggestions for FWD alternatives to the 2008 ES 350?
