I am a little bit early in this question but it's been something that I have had on my mind recently after I saw some stuff. But here it is,

I am in Korea and have had my F in storage since Aug. It's in Dallas right now but they will be shipping it to LA not long before I return in September. I am moving to Las Vegas so the only real need to stop in LA is to get my car and go, but I am concerned with driving 4 hours after the car has been in storage for a little over a year.

Now I pretty much know what I should do, take it to a dealer there and get a full service but I'm just curious if anyone thinks otherwise?

Just some more info, every month the storage facility starts it, moves it and does some basic checks. The thing I have noticed and expected is that the battery has been steadily dropping this month it needed a jump and they show it at 8.16 Volts.

Also anyone know if there are any Lexus dealerships near,
East Las Hermanas Street
Rancho Dominguez, CA 90221
I am not familiar with the LA area.

Thanks for any advice you have,

Paul

Also, If you need someone to "Properly Exercise" the car, please let me know. ;)

Longo Lexus is my dealership of choice. They are the largest Lexus dealer in the Western US and they have a very efficient service department. This is the only dealership I take my IS F to and they service more IS F's than any other in SoCal.

once your car is in LA, you can have your GPS guide you to the nearest Lexus or toyota dealer, the database is in the NAV system.

Thanks for all the pointers on dealerships, but I guess my real question was more, would it be a horrible idea to just drive to Vegas and then take care of everything there?

I've had my car in storage all winter. I plan on getting the oil changed, adding some fresh fuel and driving away. I don't think you would have any issues.

Lexus of Las Vegas has a great service department. I have taken my prior Lexus their for service while I was in town on vacation.

I'd just drive it, albeit slowly at first, to give the oil some time to circulate. It's a Lexus for crying out loud. It'll be fine. Also the drive will charge the battery back up.
