2015 Lexus RC F: Quiet Cabin Reveals Squeaky Headliner
May 20, 2015
Our long-term RC F is quiet inside. The absence of road and wind noise allows the burly V8 and powerful surround-sound audio system to shine. Unfortunately, it also spotlights a flaw.
I noticed a creaky squeak coming from the headliner. It's almost a buzzing noise coming from the hand grab right above the driver's head. Once located, I applied a slight amount of fingertip pressure to the handle and it stopped. It reappeared the next morning and the same amount of pressure made it go away.
It's not a deal-breaker, for sure. Perhaps it just needs to be tightened. I'll give it a shot next time I sign it out or maybe we'll just let the dealer know when it next goes in for service.
