Asked by Oct 02, 2014 at 11:01 PM about the 2010 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bought last month,46000 miles. Love it but noticed a puddle this week. Have had heat
and air on. Checked out by two mechanics who both said car is in great shape.
Changed oil last week, tech also said car is in good condition and every thing looks
good.

If it is just water then most likely the A/C drain off that you see on the ground, perfectly normal, the A/C will run to dry the air in your vehicle when you use any setting above or below the floor mode, it makes no difference where you have the temp setting. If the fluid is in your case slightly orange color then it is coolant and the heater core is leaking and will have to be replaced.

Mark said it all and is less words than I would use. My RX350 is 2008, has 120,000 kms up and is still a lovely car. New ones are A$100,000 here, that is about US$90,000!
