For higher-end vehicles such as an LS, I consider the cost of the warranty as part of the cost of the vehicle. Thus, if the car cost $40k and the warranty was $3k, I see this as a car that costs...

7mile, I have been using this system quite often and for very long distances (my daily commute includes about a 50-mile expressway stint each way). I think I know what you are feeling, and I don't...

I could only wish I was driving this little. But I guess if I have to do it, there are few cars that are better suited for the job than the LS.

Looks gorgeous. Having settled for a newer 460L with all the options, I still wonder what it would have been like to own the 600.

I've had both of my front air struts replaced with the car having less than 40k miles on it, so yes it's very possible that this can be an issue on the car that you are looking at. That's the part...

RWD/AWD? Could be the tires or also how the ECU is programmed.

On a separate note, I don't know why "tires" is turning into a link to walmart.

Yes we have a sensor but don't wait to trip that sensor. Once tripped they must be replaced. Just ask how many mm to the sensor.

I've driven both, the 600 and other considerably lower range CVT equipped vehicles, and I can say there is a huge difference in the feel. Whereas the 4-cyl cars they fee like a sponge, the 600 feels...

You have to pull the brake pads out of the caliper. So in essence your mechanic is being honest.

Each wheel has a sensor. One way to find out would be to take off the wheels and see which sensor is touching the rotor.

I'll take some pics of the NAV in a bit. But basically I went into the setup menu and changed the settings there.

Check if a rim is bent. Also, move the rear wheels to the front to see if the vibration appears in the steering wheel. If so, then you've pretty much narrowed the issue down to the wheels/tires.
