TO me it's very dated, but I couldn't care less. I want the basic controls within reach. Other than the driving controls, I want volume and track seek and that's about it.

I loved the MMI in my last car (2011 S4), thought the interface and the voice recognition were 1000x better than in my GX, but after experiencing the unfathomably astounding unreliability of an Audi...

I just did a 12 hour round trip from Montreal to Toronto in my new GX. It was so smooth and comfortable I thought I was in a limousine. Crazy quiet, nearly silent. Fuel economy was pretty good too....

I don't think it's a big deal. If I recall, don't all the Wranglers open the same way?

To the OP, I test drove both the 4Runner (2014, Trail edition with KDSS) and the 2014 GX460 before settling on the Lexus.

I loved the 4Runner but the front looked really cartoonish. Everyone who...

To the OP, don't publicize that event just in case your dealer is a ****** and is looking to squirm out of a warranty issue later on.
