I just purchased a 2017 GS350. Absolutely love it. Some thoughts: 1) The GS350 was just redesigned for the 2013 model year - so that's the first year of a new model. Although Toyota/Lexus does quite well quality wise, I would still be a bit hesit

The issue with back-feeding besides being dangerous and illegal is it limits the connection setup to just you. If your out of town, your wife or kids or a helpful neighbor could not do it.

Does anyone here have UOAs that show multiple reports--at least one from a thicker oil, and at least one from a thinner (0w20 or 5w20) oil? I'd love to compare how both oils did in the same engine. Yes, there are plenty of stellar reports from cars

I'd prefer the RWD model since it's less complex. Should do fine in bad weather with nice quality tires on it.
