Yep. :thumbup:

Totally normal.

On a side note, OP, you either seem to have a lot of problems with the car or you aren't happy with it and are looking for things that are wrong. This may not be...

Agreed, or at least the car that the salesman you're dealing with can make the most money on. They all have new car sales targets.

True, but if they have a goal to move a certain number of new cars, a used car isn't going to help them. I know salesman get bonuses based on the number of new cars they sell, not sure if used cars...

My guess is that they're pushing a new car (ES) on you, instead of a used car (GS). They don't get any kind of kick back or sale number from Lexus, aside from a few bucks profit, on selling used...

I think it's important to note that the SS is 15 inches longer than the ISF (180ish vs. 195.5 inches). The SS sits right in between the GS and the LS in size, for reference. This accounts for a lot...

Fair points, but at least you guys aren't getting rentals like with many dealerships (or nothing at all).

Agreed, but still better with aux/usb, and best with CD/DVD.

And yes, the car is slower, but I think the slower "feel" has more to do with the transmission and response than actual numbers. Same...

I read somewhere that the issue might be related to something with the gas tank or a sensor in the gas tank? I believe it was an issue they were having with the 3IS's that I read about. Something...

Not even in the same league, but they are completely different cars.

Handling and fun-factor, the Lexus can't even come close to the Porsches, even with similar specs.

For what it's worth, a friend of mine has the S04's and said he won't be getting them again, which made my mind up about the same question. PSS :thumbup:

I'm glad you liked it, I've heard the 6 speed auto is more responsive than the 8 speed, so it may be a better fit for you. Additionally, I would avoid a one-time lease payment. Lexus has gap coverage...

From what I've heard, you'll be just fine, but her argument of "a nuclear pollution free car" sounds ridiculous to me. I see you're in PA, is she familiar with Three Mile Island?

That being said,...

7 years newer by age, but not by design. I don't know how many miles you have, but I'm thinking the car will hit it's stride closer to 20k miles.

I've looked into the same thing, and from what I can tell, Downs are the most conservative drop, followed by the NF210s, and then the Super Downs.

This is based on averages of what I've seen and...

I'd tend to agree, I think the lag is a design feature (flaw) as I've experienced it in my car as well. Nonetheless I'm a big fan of the NX. I've heard that the BMWs have even more lag, and it's...

Ahhh I agree, we need some pics!

I've gone about it the opposite way. I got the daily GS first, and next up is the NSX. :thumbup:
