  1. Thats pretty bad workmanship by Lexus or should I say their transmssion vendor, Aisin. If I were you, I would ask for a extended warranty on the transmission.
  2. If you are using the on board computer for milage calculation, then that is normal. It always starts out high after a reset and goes down slowly afterward. The on board MPG computer should be use for reference only, manually calculate your gas mileage after each fill up for a more accurate MPG average.
  3. Make that 2. This new design direction for Lexus' front end is a bit troubling to me. Lexus' front ends use to be classy, conservative and simple. This new font end looks busy, aftermarket and radical.
  4. Do you really expect Lexus to test drive your car for 2 to 3 hours? You should calculate mileage manually anyways, the MPG computer on the dash is use for reference only, it’s not very accurate.
  5. The highlander is one big square box as well, its a minivan with a longer nose. I let my 14 year old get away with a lot of things, but choosing what car I buy is not one of them. If they dont want want to be seen with a minivan in school, tell them to walk to school instead and they will start to like the minivan pretty quick I bet :)
  6. The 3rd row seat legroom is pretty good on the Highlander, much better than the MDX. The Pilot is worth a look as well. Tell you 10 year old that most of these 7 seater SUV are basically AWD minivans.
  7. All those mid size SUV's 3rd row seats are for small children or adult on short trips. If you want a full size 3rd row seat, you will need to step up to a full size SUV like the Suburban or maybe a minivan.
  8. Overall, the quality of the Lexus wood is not what it use to be. I remember my first Lexus, it was a LS430, the wood trim on that thing was world class quality and workmanship. The wood trim in the new Lexus almost looks plastic.
  9. I had cars with the touch screen, I-drive, MMI and the Lexus mouse system is one of the best interface I have ever used on a car. Your hand can rest on the center arm rest while you go thru the screens. I am pretty OCD about keeping the inside of my car clean and finger prints on the screen just drives me nuts.
  10. The ES is one of the smoothest riding sedan in the Lexus lineup, I am sorry, but the GS doesnt even come close. Some thinks that the ES rides even better than the flagship LS460. Did you take the GS on any rough road?
  11. And dont forget the finger prints on the touch screen.
  12. The new RX also have a auto AC on and off selection. One of the best thing Lexus did with the new models is that they brought a lot of the customized setting onto the screen so the one doesnt have to go to the dealer to chnage them.
  13. Congrats on the new GS, please post some pics. I got the same impression of the GS as you after my test drive, handling is superb, accelaration need more low end torque. The interior is world class, the exterior design is subjective. The only thing I dont agree on is the ride being smooth, the GS350 had the roughest ride out of those 4 cars and I didnt even test drive the F-sport.
  14. The VSC and Trac lights can mean a lot of things, you need to pull a code off the diagnostic to find out whats going on, usuually, its some sort of sensor failure.
