LEXUS ES 350 (2019 year). Instruction - part 1

 

 

6

Please note that this manual applies to 
all models and explains all equipment, 
including options. Therefore, you may 
find some explanations for equipment 
not installed on your vehicle.
All specifications provided in this man-
ual are current at the time of printing. 
However, because of the Lexus policy 
of continual product improvement, we 
reserve the right to make changes at 
any time without notice.
Depending on specifications, the vehi-
cle shown in the illustrations may differ 
from your vehicle in terms of color and 
equipment.

Approximately five hours after the 
engine is turned off, you may hear 
sound coming from under the vehicle 
for several minutes. This is the sound of 
a fuel evaporation leakage check and, 
it does not indicate a malfunction.

A wide variety of non-genuine spare 
parts and accessories for Lexus vehi-
cles are currently available in the mar-
ket. You should know that Toyota does 
not warrant these products and is not 
responsible for their performance, 

repair, or replacement, or for any dam-
age they may cause to, or adverse 
effect they may have on, your Lexus 
vehicle.
This vehicle should not be modified 
with non-genuine Lexus products. 
Modification with non-genuine Lexus 
products could affect its performance, 
safety or durability, and may even vio-
late governmental regulations. In addi-
tion, damage or performance 
problems resulting from the modifica-
tion may not be covered under war-
ranty.

The installation of a mobile two-way 
radio system in your vehicle could 
affect electronic systems such as:
 Multiport fuel injection sys-

tem/sequential multiport fuel injec-
tion system

 Lexus Safety System+2.0
 Anti-lock brake system
 SRS airbag system
 Seat belt pretensioner system
Be sure to check with your Lexus 
dealer for precautionary measures or 
special instructions regarding installa-
tion of a mobile two-way radio system.

The vehicle is equipped with sophisti-
cated computers that will record cer-
tain data, such as:

For your information

Noise from under vehicle after 
turning off the engine

Accessories, spare parts and 
modification of your Lexus

Vehicle data recording

The recorded data varies according to 
the vehicle grade level and options 
with which it is equipped.
These computers do not record con-
versations or sounds, and only record 
images outside of the vehicle in certain 
situations.
 Engine speed / Electric motor 

speed (traction motor speed)

 Accelerator status
 Brake status
 Vehicle speed
 Operation status of the driving 

assist systems, such as the ABS and 
pre-collision system

 Images from the front camera (avail-

able only when certain safety sys-
tems are activated, which varies 
depending on the vehicle specifica-
tions).

 Data Transmission

Your vehicle may transmit the data 
recorded in these computers to Lexus 
without notification to you.

 Data usage

Lexus may use the data recorded in this 
computer to diagnose malfunctions, con-
duct research and development, and 
improve quality.
Lexus will not disclose the recorded data to 
a third party except:
• With the consent of the vehicle owner or 

with the consent of the lessee if the vehi-
cle is leased

• In response to an official request by the 

police, a court of law or a government 
agency

• For use by Lexus in a lawsuit
• For research purposes where the data is 

not tied to a specific vehicle or vehicle 
owner

 Recorded image information can be 

erased by your Lexus dealer

The image recording function can be dis-
abled. However, if the function is disabled, 
data from when the pre-collision system 
operates will not be available.
To learn more about the vehicle data col-
lected, used and shared by Lexus, please 
visit

www.lexus.com/privacyvts/

.

If your Lexus has Lexus Enform and if 
you have subscribed to those services, 
please refer to the Lexus Enform 
Telematics Subscription Service 
Agreement for information on data 
collected and its usage.
To learn more about the vehicle data 
collected, used and shared by Lexus,

This vehicle is equipped with an event 
data recorder (EDR). The main pur-
pose of an EDR is to record, in certain 
crash or near crash-like situations, such 
as an air bag deployment or hitting a 
road obstacle, data that will assist in 
understanding how a vehicle’s systems 
performed. The EDR is designed to 

Usage of data collected through 
Lexus Enform (U.S.mainland on-
ly)

Event data recorder

8

record data related to vehicle dynam-
ics and safety systems for a short 
period of time, typically 30 seconds or 
less.
The EDR in this vehicle is designed to 
record such data as:
 How various systems in your vehicle 

were operating;

 Whether or not the driver and pas-

senger safety belts were buck-
led/fastened;

 How far (if at all) the driver was 

depressing the accelerator and/or 
brake pedal; and,

 How fast the vehicle was traveling.
These data can help provide a better 
understanding of the circumstances in 
which crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your 
vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situa-
tion occurs; no data are recorded by 
the EDR under normal driving condi-
tions and no personal data (e.g., name, 
gender, age, and crash location) are 
recorded. However, other parties, such 
as law enforcement, could combine the 
EDR data with the type of personally 
identifying data routinely acquired 
during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, spe-
cial equipment is required, and access 
to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In 
addition to the vehicle manufacturer, 
other parties, such as law enforcement, 
that have the special equipment, can 
read the information if they have 
access to the vehicle or the EDR.

 Disclosure of the EDR data

Lexus will not disclose the data recorded in 
an EDR to a third party except when:
• An agreement from the vehicle’s owner 

(or the lessee for a leased vehicle) is 
obtained

• In response to an official request by the 

police, a court of law or a government 
agency

• For use by Lexus in a lawsuit
However, if necessary, Lexus may:
• Use the data for research on vehicle 

safety performance

• Disclose the data to a third party for 

research purposes without disclosing 
information about the specific vehicle or 
vehicle owner

The SRS airbag and seat belt preten-
sioner devices in your Lexus contain 
explosive chemicals. If the vehicle is 
scrapped with the airbags and seat belt 
pretensioners not deployed, this may 
cause an accident such as fire. Be sure 
to have the systems of the SRS airbag 
and seat belt pretensioner removed 
and disposed of by a qualified service 
shop or by your Lexus dealer before 
you scrap your vehicle.

Special handling may apply, See 
www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/
perchlorate.
Your vehicle has components that may 
contain perchlorate. These compo-
nents may include airbag, seat belt pre-

WARNING

General precautions while driving

Driving under the influence: Never drive 

your vehicle when under the influence of 

alcohol or drugs that have impaired your 

ability to operate your vehicle. Alcohol 

and certain drugs delay reaction time, 

impair judgment and reduce coordina-

tion, which could lead to an accident that 

could result in death or serious injury.
Defensive driving: Always drive defen-

sively. Anticipate mistakes that other 

drivers or pedestrians might make and 

be ready to avoid accidents.
Driver distraction: Always give your full 

attention to driving. Anything that dis-

tracts the driver, such as adjusting con-

trols, talking on a cellular phone or 

reading can result in a collision with 

resulting death or serious injury to you, 

your occupants or others.

General precaution regarding chil-

dren’s safety

Never leave children unattended in the 

vehicle, and never allow children to have 

or use the key.
Children may be able to start the vehicle 

or shift the vehicle into neutral. There is 

also a danger that children may injure 

themselves by playing with the windows, 

the moon roof or panoramic moon roof, 

or other features of the vehicle. In addi-

tion, heat build-up or extremely cold 

temperatures inside the vehicle can be 

fatal to children.
