The Genesis is much larger than the GS and much less expensive. The ES comparison works because of price and interior room, but the Genesis is more like the LS because of its size, RWD, V-8...

[QUOTE=Swacer;9106664]One thing to keep in mind (and I'm certainly not defending dez) is that MANY cars are built on other platforms. For example:

One of the advantages of the hybrid as executed by Lexus is that the air conditioner is electric powered. Driving in town and slow traffic, the A/C operates very well as opposed to those driven by...

Based on all the hype I went to the local dealer a drove a C300. It is beautiful, but I was very disappointed in the interior room. With the driver's seat adjusted for me, there was not room in the...

The Mercedes C-300 is a turbo 2 liter, the BMW 328 is a turbo 2 liter, so it makes some sense for the US market to rename the 200t to 300. The answer for the rest of the world is probably different,...

I don't know why other people are not choosing the GS, but for me the interior is just too small to use as a sedan to transport 4 adults. I bought the ES instead of the GS for the rear leg room and...

I hope this is some kind of April Fool's joke and the real car will be revealed tomorrow!

The new platform is a stretched version of the one used for the Fusion. Powerplant is a 3 liter V-6 Ecoboost and the car is AWD. I disagree that RWD is necessary for a luxury car, Audi seems to...

The larger rear tires work fine on a RWD car but I've never seen anyone run them on a FWD car. It may really mess up the handling and braking.

Alex on Autos has a review of the 2015 Edge Sport and he keeps repeating about how fast it is with the 2.7 Ecoboost. The MKX should have similar performance so I'm interested. I noticed that on the...

Mike,
On the Edsel we had, the hub of the steering wheel was stationary, it did not turn with the wheel. The big transmission problem was the servos that changed gears. They were mounted on the...

My '14 ES350 came with 18" wheels as part of the luxury package. I wish I had tried to get them exchanged for "17's. I had a loaner with the 17" wheels and it was a lot smoother and quieter than my...

The 18" setup will ride better and the Michelins will be quieter. The only positive I know of for the larger wheels is appearance. My 2010 RX350 had 19" wheels as part of a package and I always...

The factory Navi screen on the ES is much too far away for touch screen. Once you get used to the remote touch it is not all bad. If the screen were close enough, I still would prefer touchscreen,...
