I have no issue with the ride of the RX, but don't mind a bit of harshness in the ride as I like the additional confidence of what I consider improved handling. My lovely wife prefers the same type...

NX Sport mode

Does anyone know exactly what "Sport Mode" changes on my 200t? I know there are no suspension changes to improve the handling. I'm guessing it remaps the throttle to make it feel more responsive. I...

Have you adjusted the feedback/sensitivity? I basically turned off that "Haptic (?) Feedback", and it improved dramatically. It was almost unusable.

It reminds me of the time I beat a new Jag X Type on a freeway on ramp! I'm pretty sure I was the only one of the 2 of us that knew we were racing, though.

LED interior lights

I read through the Lighting forum, and did a quick search through the rest. I found nothing specific to the NX, which has a unique way to manually turn on the dome lights. I also went through the...

The tires are gone, but I still want to get rid of the Floor Liners. I got the floor liners for my NX today, so I could theoretically use the box to ship the old ones, if someone wants to pay for the...

It's hard for me to think of my NX as an "economy SUV", especially considering other options in the "economy" class as typically defined by automotive experts. In my world, economy means cost...

Generally, I like painted or powder coated calipers, but only when the brake package is worth highlighting. I painted the calipers on my MINI a few years ago, and was sorry after about a month. Brake...

The NX is certainly no race car, but I may have to look up accelerate stats to compare it to the IS300 and satisfy my curiosity. So many things effect the feel. Gear ratios in the trans and the rear...

We actually bought out the lease on our RX because we like it so much. In fact, we chose to keep it rather than buy the new RX, which we looked at very carefully.

When I first drove the NX, I was...

Nope. I drove, and was disappointed in the IS300 AWD. I honestly think the NX feels a bit quicker than the IS300. I also think the NX feels a lot more refined.

The IS200t would be nice, but I need...

New NX

I went to the dealer to drive a new IS last night, and was 85% sure I would be driving one home. I was wrong.

I'm the proud new owner of aN NX200t FSport. I got out of the IS a bit disappointed in...

New IS 300?

I'm getting pretty close to buying a new IS300 FSport this week. I had an 11 IS350 that I wish I still had, but I'm hoping this will be close. Deciding between Ultra White and Nebula Gray Pearl.

You can defeat the motorized opening 100% of the time by having the dealer change the preference setting (sometimes they say they can't do it, but they can). My wife prefers the automatic opening,...

Don't think of it as a lease return. Think of it as trading it in or selling it, because that's really what you're doing. It's actually possible to get MORE for your return than the buyout. When I...
