I will. I'll probably wait until the spring, and slap some winter tires on the current wheels. Then get a summer set. I'll be moving back to Texas, so my summer set can be used all year round!

According to both Tire Rack (when I called) and my dealer, the RX is approved to have H rated tires. Why they have V rated tires on there is beyond me. Going to H rated gives you many more tire...

Yeah. I had a Nissan murano a few years ago and hated their cvt. But when I had a 450h loaner, I love it. Really moved the car with ease.

And thanks for the well wishes everyone. This is a...

I read about the adaptive learning, and even went back to the dealer and had them refresh my ECU in an attempt to "start over" from the learning perspective. Didn't work for me.

Your description is correct. That was the problem I was having. When I made rolling stops, the tranny would stay in way too high a gear (if I were going 20 mph, it would often stay in 4th or 5th- I...

When I traded in my RX I was shocked at how seemingly low the amount I was offered was. I purchased new for $52K and only got $32000. That was after 2.5 years and only 25K miles. But when I did...

I have 19x8.5 niche targas on my f sport. I went with 245/55r19 to give it a slightly better ride (more sidewall) without sacrificing the 19 inch wheel look. Niche has many 19s with an OEM offset...

I didn't drive the hybrid before I purchased, which was a mistake. I got one as a loaner and it was much better. Of course the base model with the 6 speed tranny was better too. Mine drives badly...

I would stay away from an f sport unless it's a 2016. Hopefully they got the tranny right in the new model. The current f sport has many issues, IMO...not with reliability. Rather it is a very...
