  1. Easy to take things for granted

    The only bad thing about the e-cvt is the name. It should have been called the Planetary Drive Gear (PDG)! Mention CVT and you think of rubber bands and Daf Variomatic drive.
  2. NX Lux 6 months in…MUD anyone & MPG

    How about a photo competition. With before and after pics of the muddiest NX.
  3. new pictures from the Lexus japan website

    Interesting they are calling it a Hybrid that charges itself. A dig at plug in hybrids and EVs.
  4. Servicing Costs

    I thought on a BMW the dipstick was behind the wheel. [emoji1]

    Welcome to the enlightened minority.

    Don't like the NX styling. To fat at the back end and I prefer curves to sharp edges. As for taking the kids to uni. We use the wife's Jazz. Which has a much bigger boot and space in the rear then the IS. I'll stick with the IS for now. Thanks

    Thanks for your opinions. Seems like they are not quite on par with Lexus and a bit expensive for a private buyer.
  9. Test drives.

    Sounds like you have already bought it in your head as you are still persisting in having a test drive. The IS is not a sports car. If you want something to race around in and enjoy the performance the the eCVT is not for you. If you want to waft around in comfort then you will soon get used to the eCVT and enjoy its sublime smoothness.

    Just wondering what people's opinion of infinity cars are. Particularly the Q50 hybrid. How do they compare to the IS or GS. They seem expensive to buy new but take a big drop in the first year. They are probably quite expensive to insure, tax, run as it is a big engine and the IS is powerful enough for me to waft around in. Just thinking of options when it is time to replace the IS.
  11. Dealer servicing courtesy car

    Dealers should see curtesy cars as potential test drives and put you in the car they hope you would buy next.
  12. Sat-nav in 2013 IS 350h.

    Not sure what sat nav you have but does it have a display option in the carousel. In there there is an option display off. This works on mine.
  13. IS 300H RWD

    I keep pressing the Snow button, but it never snows.
  14. Test drives.

    Good luck with the test drive. Take your check book with you! One issue you may have, the test drive car may be the face lift version and if you are after a used one it may be the pre face lift. Not sure how different they are to drive.
  15. IS300h cvt gearbox

    I thought it would hold for more than two seconds. Sometimes when stopped on a hill I can stay stationary without the parking brake or foot brake depressed. Perhaps in the situation the creep forward is equal to the roll back. I thought it could not roll back. Like how the include electronically controlled baking these days. Never know when you may need a cake.
