The thing lacking with the were audio sources, were just basic. Our car had a six-disc changer that can MP3 CDs and DVDs, and an auxiliary input XM satellite radio and iPod are also available.

These choices felt a spare next to those of the EX35. which we recently

The Bluetooth system lets you phone numbers into the phone book.

We had no trouble our Samsung SGH-D807 phone to the GS but the system didn’t proactively our contact list. Rather, we entered the phonebook function in the we could send contacts to the car This is more a limitation of our as other phones will let you your entire contact at once.

Although there are no on the instrument panel for directly the phone functions, the voice system works well for purpose.

The only other significant feature is the reverse camera and sensors, which come the navigation and stereo package. The camera doesn’t offer features, such as animated that show the car’s merely just the view the car.

The GS 460 doesn’t hold the power to achieve this economy, either. You can still the gas pedal and roar–or rather, to 60 mph in no time at all. Even there are eight gears to get you don’t feel the shifts, as the seems programmed to change at optimal RPMs.

Putting the into sport mode, we a little baffled to see a numeric indicator appear on the instrument and remain static no matter gear the transmission was actually This number does which gear you will be from when you start the manual mode, but we would if the indicator showed the current and let you enter manual mode that point.

We give the GS 460 a high rating for as it is amazing what Lexus out of this V-8. And Lexus the only car maker with an transmission. The sport gear on the car is very impressive.

The GS 460 earns a rating for cabin tech. The are all of good quality, but there are a lot of features missing. On the design we like the touch-screen interface, and it high marks for that, as as the general practicality of the car.
