Default 6th Generation Lexus ES Stuck in the Mud

Out of curiosity, what is it like getting a 6th generation (2013-2018) Lexus ES 350 stuck in the mud with the tires spinning in place and has anyone had that experience.

No, never had that experience and I would guess no one else on here has either... I would suggest that your time might be better spent watching reruns of Mr. Rogers...

I would imagine it's like any rear wheel drive car without positive traction.

Mine threw mud up to the mirror but wouldn't get stuck. Must be too good off road.

Are the construction sites muddy and if so, can you take a video of your Lexus ES 350 stuck in the mud spinning the tires if it does.

Can't take a video lol, I am at work. Generally, the car stays clean and you get no wheel spin. I had to turn off traction control and floor it to spin the tires and get it dirty.
