I am not trying to pick a fight and certainly mean no offense, but I actually enjoy hearing about the Carista products. Realizing I was not the one asking the question, I wasn't the least bit...

Just to clarify one discussion item, we have Nav and no ML, and we do have the Enform remote option. So I think it must be be an option with the Nav. I can also confirm the pricing that someone else...

I have seen several references to this suggestion that this latest gen ES is based on the Avalon and it is certainly what the sales reps are stating. Sadly, not everything my sales rep told me is...

Roxy208, I would like to offer that I do not have the UL version, but I do have remote start through the mobile app. So it isn't on the key fob and it does require an annual subscription, but it does...

Not that I would know, but I have heard the park assist can be really annoying when sitting at a fast food restaurant in line. The bushes beside the drive thru cause it to buzz incessantly and I like...

I believe you should be able to configure it that way. My car is configured very similar to that, but with the Premium package instead of the Luxury package. It has the blind spot monitor, heated and...

Yes, the remote access is an add on top of SOS. Lexus quoted me $219.90 per year for the SOS/Remote "package".

It does have some challenges as a 1.0 version. It is designed to expect you to lock...

Regarding the comment about wanting black with kids, I respectfully disagree. Kids don't pay attention and will kick the inside door panels and the seat backs. That would just amplify the challenges...

In my humble opinion, with respect to the cosmetic issues, you are a perfectionist. I mean no offense and offer that as a compliment and not a slap in any way. I am the same way so I do understand...

You definitely get a lot of opinions on interior colors based largely on personal preference. With that in mind, I will share my opinion as well. We have had our ES for three weeks now and it has a...

In my case, perhaps more forgetful than wiser. LOL. You will definitely enjoy the hybrid and it is so unobtrusive in the 300H that you hardly notice it. Terrific car and you will enjoy the Nebula...

We have the stock 17" wheels with the Bridgestone tires. I like the wheels just fine and while I like the look of the 18s better, I love the ride quality and wouldn't want to risk that. In my...

I am 53. Wife is 55. We carpool so this replaces our Prius as the daily driver. RX tends to be our weekend car and will now be used more for hauling capacity since the ES trunk is so much smaller...

We do the same thing and always did with our Priuses too. If you car is moving and the gas engine isn't running, you are indeed saving gas. Using the stored energy in the battery effectively is the...

I agree with Canesguy. It is plenty peppy for my needs, and the power delivery is remarkably smooth. It also has a smooth quiet ride (compared to either my RX or the former Prius). It is just a...

Enjoy your new ride. We have the Nebula Gray Pearl on our RX and it is a great color. We were lucky enough to get the parchment interior which I must say is easier to take care of. The black in our...

I would also guess the bulb's color temperature has also been changed at some point. As I mentioned, the 2013 HIDs are noticeably whiter than the 2004. I would have thought that change would have...

First, without knowing what packages the 2013 has, it would be hard to confirm the original price, but in general it sounds very similar to ours and so the "over 50K" price seems reasonable.

That certainly makes sense. There is no denying that turning results in thinner rotors which are more likely to develop the problem again. My only personal experience was with the 04 RX and my dealer...
