Couldn't find a previous post on this. The console power outlet is so high on my 08, I cannot close the lid while charging my phone. The outlet is mounted lower on the 09's. I contacted Lexus Customer Satisfaction and and received a reply saying they are documenting this for "product improvement consideration". If enough 08 owners contact them, maybe we can get a retrofit kit. Their phone is 1-800-255-3987 and the person to talk to is Nanette Tran.

Possibly a good idea to post in CL and share with the rest of the 2IS 06-08 owners.

My buddy has a GS and a Lexus rep told him not to use the cig lighter to charge phones because it burns the fuse out quickly. Not sure if that's accurate or not.

I like the console because it keeps the wires all hidden. I should just spring for the iPod adapter this year though.

sounds like a load of bs because I always plugged my cell to charge in my 07 GS all the time. I do the same with my 09 isf with no problems.

i agree. the cig lighter and the plug in the console probably run on the same circuit linked to the same fuse. can't believe a "tech" or "service advisor" said that. wow!

Has anyone noticed the ashtray and console power outlets are switched? Is there a way to make them stay on so I can recharge my phone while the car is parked at work? Surely a little phone battery won't kill the car battery. It never did in my other cars.
