During my most recent 2000 mile road trip I was able to test the GS in both snow and ice. The car is a joy to drive with more than ample power - in fact it provides a bit of an unexpected rush when the pushed. Neither snow or ice provided any impediment to the GS 350, and I was in control even in mountain passes. The gas mileage is close to advertised, and there has been nothing needing correction since purchase. What a difference from my experience with german engineering. Love it!
Powerful engine, moisture sensitive wipers, brakes and instrument panel that is logical.
Take the side mirrors adjustment out of the closing compartment.
