2009 RX-350 AWD, 94,000 miles
Would you purchase a water pump for this vehicle from someone other than the
dealer...is there a big difference in reliability..thks.
There may or may not be a difference in reliability and quality and you would have no way to tell the difference. I would get one from an Lexus dealership or order one online from an Lexus dealership. It will cost more, but think of it as insurance.
Thanks for the input...dealer also recommends i use Toyota/Lexus coolant to refill radiator...any thoughts on that...thks.
I personally would use the recommended coolant as it is made to be fully compatible with your cooling system. Using the wrong coolant on some of today's engines, with all the aluminum in them, can cause premature corrosion. Corrosion in the cooling system is NOT a good thing.
