Mine is the exact same way. I thought it might be a problem with my stalk, but I guess it's normal? I'll have to try what bclexus posted the next time it rains. I've noticed the rain sensing wipers...

They should be about identical. That is to say, unimpressive. GS weighs a bit more, but if memory serves, it is also has a touch less drag. Call it a wash?

I hear you, a subtle car it is not.

And for what it's worth, I'm not sure I could get past the badge on the Genesis either - but it is impressive.

I've found it to be inaccurate as well, to the point where I rarely rely on it and if it shows something, I'll double check it on my phone.

Lots of good suggestions in this thread. I think if nothing really grabs you, I would extend the lease and see what the next E class brings. If you don't like it and you want to keep the GS, your...

Nice pick up! It may sound crazy, but I'm a huge fan of the CT. I love the size and the I find the cockpit/seats to be ergonomic and pleasing - though I've never driven one. I'd get one of these...

Honestly, you aren't missing out on much of anything. There has been a good deal of debate on the 6 vs the 8 speed, but the short of it is, both are great transmissions. Congrats on the purchase and...

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.

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...

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...

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.

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?
