Look on Etrailer.com. They have a hitch specifically made for the f sport that has special holes for you to reattach the damper. Much cheaper than the one from Lexus and you can do it yourself.

Yeah, I may look at the Murano instead of sticking with Lexus. I really like the base NX but it is a touch small for me. And I fear the new RX will be a touch too big and too expensive.

I owned a 2009 Murano and loved it for the most part. Interior quality was on par with Infiniti. In fact, sitting in the Murano and then in an Infiniti, you would have a hard time telling the...

I have an f sport with 19s and the ride was quite harsh. I ditched the v rated tires for h's with a higher sidewall (245/55r19s) and it made a ton of difference. But I just had a loaner with the...

During my test drives of both base and F sport models two years ago, I noticed that the ride was firmer in the F sport, but don't recall thinking it was too firm. I liked the handling, aesthetics,...

BertL, thanks for the input. I agree with your points. I love the idea of a BMW or Porsche with more power and "image/status", but am frightened of the reliability and cost issues. I also love the...

Thanks for the replies. As expected, the dealer didn't find anything "wrong". I test drove another f sport at the dealer- this one was a new 2015. I would say pretty much drove the same as mine,...

As some of you know, I have been having some issues with the transmission and throttle in my F sport (a 2013). I installed an Apexi throttle controller, which helps a lot, but I have noticed the...

I'm at 24k miles and it does the same thing. Specifically when I am coasting and let off the gas slightly. It definitely sounds like the valve in the exhaust. When I hear it and give it just a...

Yep exactly right. If I'm paying $65k I'm getting a cayenne. The only reason I'm not driving one now is because the one I wanted was $66K and the RX was a better deal. It won't be if the price goes...
