Yeah, the last time my wife didn't like the smaller, sportier car I got, it was because she was jealous that she didn't get a new car, and instead was stuck driving the Odyssey we had at the time. ...

I also think that it is due to your other cars being larger, rather than the IS being too small. I went through 15 years in a Honda Prelude, Infiniti G35 Coupe, and Honda S2000, and never once...

Porsche Macan > Lexus RX

Planning on doing this switch in about two years. Size-wise, the Macan is probably better compared to the NX, and even then it easily wins with regards to performance and...

on another note...if your wife ever starts to grow tired of how firm the suspension is, to the point where it's uncomfortable, you can also go to a taller tire (245/55r19) with a slightly lower speed...

Agreed! I bought one of the last prelude Type SHs made (2001), and have regretted getting rid of it. The thing was bullet proof, had superb handling, great gas mileage, and a blast to drive. Of...

Check out niche road wheels. I put niche targas on my f sport (the link is in a post above). I stuck with 19s but went wider with 19x8.5s. I like the styling of most of them, their load limits are...

Must agree with the author. Had the rx had a three row option I would have gotten it to replace our minivan. Instead I got an mdx. Didn't want the gx for the reasons the author mentions....too...

Now that I have three young kids, I missed the window to own an ISF (unless it becomes a third car), but it was my dream car for many years. But one thing I always appreciated was who drove them. I...

I think it will sell well, at least initially. But like others have said, the looks may not age well. Some have cited that going from the 3GS to the 4GS was a "huge change" too. But the current GS...

I agree completely. I think the 4RX base price will rise significantly too, partially to pull it away from the NX. The 4RX looks, now, to have many of the tech features of the current GS. When I...
