So I got an 07 IS250 September last year and had no problems until a few months ago - when starting the ignition I hear sort of a rattle noise. Took it into Lexus for the 45k service and highlighted the problem with them. Found out that I needed to replace the VVT-i controllers (luckily still under warranty). They told me that it was only a minor issue and that I could continue driving it while they order in the new part. I've now had the problem fixed and no more rattle noise. They mentioned that it would have costed over 2k if I hadn't had the warranty.

Just wondering if any here has had the same problem? Also, my warranty runs out June this year - is it really worth extending?
