It seems we all have our own experiences (and tastes), but we all ended up here one way or another. I know with myself and ItzFilyO, we had Hondas that were made in the last few years, not in 2008. I...

My understanding is that it also is a limitation of front wheel drive, you only have so much mechanical flexibility when the front wheels have to do more than just turn left and right.

Thanks for sharing, this was my planned setup once my current tires are dust.

I agree. I don't know what mileage the CPO warranty goes until, but I would definitely take it in to the dealership in hopes (demand?) of a warranty repair. Hopefully they won't declare it a wear...

I agree. I had a 2012 Accord that gave me a number of problems, and that combined with the dealership experience? I'm done with Honda/Acura. And that's AFTER having an Acura AND a Honda that I...

Maybe slightly off topic, but I feel the same way about the GS, it does not feel like a car with 300 hp to me, but the numbers say otherwise.

That being said, I just spent a month overseas, and...

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...
