Pre-collision system freaked me out

So, the pre-collision system on my ES300h really worried me today. I was in my underground car park at work and had just pulled out of my spot (literally driven 20' or less). I came to a "crossing"...

I got my ES300h around July. On my first commutes I was playing the MPG game and getting awesome mileage. I remember my first trip to work I achieved 46 MPG :) Over time I became a little less...

Well, if you ignore Verizon and TMobile who also offer Lumia phones then, yes, I guess you could call that an exclusive :)

I appreciate the advice :)

Seriously, it's just an annoyance (having never had to wait with any previous car I owned) that's all and I merely wanted to know if there was an alternative.

Anyone? Does everyone wait for the last passenger to get out their door and close it before they can lock the doors?

Why ES 350 over ES 300h?

(Full disclosure - I just bought an ES 300h about a month ago).

This may come across as a provocative question but it's not intended that way. I am honestly quite intrigued by this and would...

Checking the doors are closed

I suspect that this will cause a smile or two but it just kind of bugs me :)

My ES 300h is the first I have had with keyless entry/lock. When I lock the doors (touch the door) I hear the doors...

Software upgrades

Before I decided to buy my ES 300h, I was looking at a Lincoln MKZ too and signed up for their equivalent of this forum. One thing I read about was that Lincoln recently upgraded the software for the...

Interesting thread. I got my ES 300h on Saturday and it's the first hybrid I have ever driven, let alone owned. So, I have quite the learning curve.

I'm curious to know if Lexus ever upgrade the software in the navigation package to address user feedback, bugs, etc? I just got my ES 300h on Saturday so have no idea.

Thanks.

MPG for current trip

It seems strange to me that there's no mention of MPG on the Trip Information screen. That seems like one of the more interesting data points but it's not there (as compared to Average Speed, which...

Wow - really? Yeah, I must admit that seems cheap and tacky to have a monthly fee to use an app, regardless of which phone/store it is for. A shame.

Enform Apps and Windows Phone

My Nokia 920 paired with Enform on my ES 300h immediately, the contacts lists downloaded fine, I can play music through Bluetooth, etc. It's all good.

Buying out of state

Just want to check something...

I live in Washington State. If I purchase from a dealer in, say, Portland, OR will I be liable for any sales tax?
