Default My Favorite GS Review Ever


Even though it's 15 minutes long, I was glued to my PC monitor the entire time. Watching this convinced me to consider the GS450h F-Sport instead of the GS350 F-Sport. Looks like torque and the presence of the CVT isn't a problem for the GS450h. Now I'm really looking forward to my test-drive of the GS450h F-Sport when it arrives next weekend.

Nice find. It would be nice if we got GS 450h F Sport here in the USA. Interesting ivory interior color for F Sport as well.

"Oh my god this thing turns like a lunatic..." LOL!!!

15 degrees of movement in the rear wheels? Wow thats a lot even though its a maximum of 2 degrees only. Feels like a Robin Williams review!

That guy is too funny. Does he really think that you have to make a turn in order to cancel the turn signal? Hilarious!

:x nice review; but as otheres stated here in the states there isnt an fsport GS450h. You can go ahead and buy an h and throw as many parts from an fsport you can find!

Some great lines in this review:

"Ooh, that sounds good."

"I'm in traffic, I need to calm it down."

"Oh, I like this car!"

"...Dat engine!"

"This could be very addictive."

"It hangs on like a housefly."

I like this guy. Very funny and has a great sense of humor

"TAX BAND C!!!"



I should watch this video again (i.e. more than once)

P.S.
One thing I noticed

When you change between different driving modes, the tachometer changes (from an eco meter to a regular tachometer/revmeter in sport/sport+ modes).

So I guess the GS 450h has an LCD tachometer?

No it actually has a tach/energy meter like CT when switching from Sport to the other modes:

ECO/Normal Modes:


Sport/Sport+ Modes:

In my 450h, the power meter is actually a kW meter. And I have no clue what the engine is running at when its running. I wish mine had this!
