My '14 ES350 came with 18" wheels as part of the luxury package. I wish I had tried to get them exchanged for "17's. I had a loaner with the 17" wheels and it was a lot smoother and quieter than my...

You're going to have a tough time with airliners then. All the Airbus models from the A319 on up are full fly by wire systems. Boeing transformation has been a bit slower, but all their new...

The 18" setup will ride better and the Michelins will be quieter. The only positive I know of for the larger wheels is appearance. My 2010 RX350 had 19" wheels as part of a package and I always...

The factory Navi screen on the ES is much too far away for touch screen. Once you get used to the remote touch it is not all bad. If the screen were close enough, I still would prefer touchscreen,...

Rather than the Subaru model, I think Acura should follow the Audi example. Keep FWD for the lower powered models and price leaders, but focus on SH-AWD for their performance cars. Both the RDX and...

If you look at a loaded S5 this year, the list price is $68,400 which is a lot more than you can load on the RC350. Also, no longer a V8 in the S5. The RC350 is more a competitor for the A5 with...
