Probably ran it over and it's stuck on the exhaust. Get under the car to see. Remove it before you drive any further.

Where did your exhaust system go?

looks like an art hanging wire...when did you run over the artist with his painting?

That has got to have been a road hazard...no way would Lexus use a bent wire to hang exhaust or anything else. pull it out and furgetaboutit.

...and the exhaust systems is one of these new "invisible" ones....leaving only a couple of holes in the undercarriage where it used to be~
