2012 Toyota with an oil leak, sacrilege, I hear you say. Best option is get it over a pit or on a lift and see where its coming from. Are you sure its gear oil? An inspection will soon sort it but the fix could be costly. Check your lexus recalls online in case they have had a problem.
wear to the outside of the tyre could indicate to a tyre specialist that the car recieves some serious cornering g-forces. but if this SUV is driven carefully then that should not have happened. when driving down a straight flat road let go of the steering wheel for just a second (make sure the roads empty first) and see if the car wants to lean to the right. it could mean you may have a wheel alignment issue. wear the the outside can also be possible if you are running your tyres on low pressure for extended periods of time (also does not sound likely if maintained) but if that is so you should see wear on the inside . there is also simply the fact that that tyre may be a bad batch from the factory in which case the tyre fitter will exchange it under warranty if he thinks that is the case. but my money is in the wheels alignment.
Your still under warranty I would make them have an service adviser ride with you to see the issue. If the transmission is slipping it can be a few things internally like torque converter, and so on. I would also check for any recalls on the vehicle. But I wouldn't let the dealer push you around, cause what do you bet they find the issue once your out of warranty. Just be firm with them.
Try turning your air system off and jack up the SUV. move the control arms around, then up and down the best you can. Let the SUV down on the ground, take a look to see how level the SUV sits . It should reset itself when you turn back on the air supply system. If not, you may have punctured or damaged one or both of the airbags if you lifted the SUV without turning the air off first. You may get lucky, but remember to shut off air supply if you have bags for suspension in the furture.
