How you liking the benz. I currently drive a 2013 GS. I miss having car play but at least it has bluetooth.Just bought it new. I had a 2015 Lexus GS350 F-Sport, and it has no CarPlay.. Drove me crazy.
This time, my requirements included CarPlay support. This has it, plus a few other toys (like it nearly self-drives!)

So far, I'm loving it. The 2019 was the redesign year -- so, it has an inline-6 turbo, and it's super nice to drive. It's about double the cost (ish) of the GS though :-OHow you liking the benz. I currently drive a 2013 GS. I miss having car play but at least it has bluetooth.
Damn you get better MPGs than my wife's RC200T! We can barely get the mid 20s with that thingBought this a week ago. Have owned every generation of the RX (2001 RX300, 2006 RX400h, 2012 RX450h which my inlaw now owns). The most reliable cars I've ever owned, had never gone back for service other than routine stuff. 400 miles into my second tank and the average MPG is 32.8, amazing for a car this size. Contemplated on waiting for Tesla Model Y which would make perfect sense since I have solar (and a Model 3!), but the constant buggy software updates is a turn off for me.

I love the car, but every software update has introduced little bugs here and there. To name a few that comes to mind in the past few months - scrambled display, car taking long to wake when opening app, surrounding cars dancing around on the display, display turning super dim at night, backup camera looking like it went from 1080p to 480p, false positives with the emergency lane departure avoidance, phantom slamming of the brakes on highway while on autopilot (repeatable when driving under the same overpass on the highway at night), more recently the FM radio stops working until I reboot the car.Curious what bugs you are getting? I have 2 Model 3s and have had Teslas for over 4 years with minimal to no issues on software that's for sure.
Sorry to hear that!
It was actually at 34.2MPG after 200 miles of 75/25 local/highway drives, until I made a 120 mile round trip on the highway with the AC blasting the whole time and the averaged went back down to earth to 32.8. My normal drive is 50/50 highway/local. I think ~32MPG will be the norm. In my 2012, the lifetime average at 115k miles was 27.8MPG, and in ideal conditions best I ever got was 31.Damn you get better MPGs than my wife's RC200T! We can barely get the mid 20s with that thing
