*song plays* “Reunited and it feels so goooood…”.
Lol, okay, so my last post was an intro to the new GS. Now after spending quite a weekend in viva Las Vegas I'm ready to get down to the nitty gritty. Overall, the Lexus GS is a nice automobile. The time I spent driving it and testing out the features, made me re-remember what I love about the car. The new Lexus GS is what I'd call– "safe, comfortable luxury," that's the best way I can put it.
In the Las Vegas Desert: A fleet of Lexus… Lexues… Lexi… what is the best plural of Lexus. I guess I'll just say Lexus vehicles.
We went to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where we became amateur racers of sort– racing around the track, going through courses, really seeing how the GS could handle. And not only was the ride smooth, while going unmentionable miles per hour, I felt really safe the entire time. This was especially true when the seatbelts automatically started tightening during some of the less than polished moments of driving/racing around the course.
Another high point of the new GS is their Enform system. This reminds me of the iDrive system in BMW's that I'm used to, except for they seem to have way more stuff…. Voice-enabled apps let you perform local searches with Bing, make restaurant reservations through OpenTable, and get movie tickets via MovieTickets.com. You also have the ability to check in on Facebook and search for business, shopping, restaurant and entertainment reviews on Yelp. Then finally there's Internet radio with Pandora® and iHeartRadio.
Besides that it provides the usual GPS, emergency road assistance, DVD audio and video compatibility, etc that most cars provide these days.
