Default Jennifer reviews the LX 570 in 2 minutes

There's plenty of good, well thought out reviews for the LX, but cars.com recently posted these gems.


In this video, Jennifer reviews the LX. She does not mention the body on frame construction, skidplates and underbody protection, reliability record, resale, the fact that buyers actually might want a vehicle that weighs 6,000 pounds, off road ability, suspension, etc.
Remote touch isn't perfect but it's hardly like using a laptop. I would also prefer touchscreen redundancy but honestly I was able to use the system easily and quickly the very first day when I drove a 15 RX recently.
Sluggish power? Engine "groans"? Dumb ish, it sounds like a naturally aspirated V8 is supposed to sound.

Cars.com also has a review of the Land Cruiser where they again completely miss the point.

Best part is, all of the complaining and he loves the PMRS (pimp my ride system) which is the dumbest feature of the vehicle.



Some of the Youtube comments are gold.

jeniffer should go back to the kitchen cause she has no idea what shes talking about

you guys leave her alone i use to be a heroin addict like her is not easy

Lady who let you drive this $100K car??? My mom has one it is amazing and it doesn't lack on luxury it's called you lack on style.

While I have no idea what the guy is talking.... the good news is LX doesn't need US reviewers to produce good footages

I can hear the posters now wanting the sequential blinking turn signals which really do not exist. ��

They do not exist in the US due to government regulations. They do exist in other countries.

US DOT requires the a turn signal indicator to be fully lit at the start of its sequence, so a sequential turn signal that has a fluid build up is not legal. Very silly. Mustangs get away with it because the first element that lights up is fully lit up, the other 2 elements are just icing on the cake,

My point is that the sequential effect is due to the frames per minute of the camera recording the video.

I know all about the government regulations.

i dont get these stupid rules.
There are plenty of audis with sequential turn signals. It will be coming to most cars.
All it is a is a led control module. IF anyone knows where to get that part, just splice it on the wire.

If you do your homework you will find it to be much harder to do than just splicing a wire.

Go over the RX forum and there is a poster who did it but had to buy new complete light housing and it cost an arm and leg.

Help me understand the fascination with a different turn signal. What if you simply find the Audi gizmo that controls the light and simply buy a couple?
