2013 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport: What's Happening Under the Driver Seat?

February 11, 2012

2013 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport

Something is moving under my butt.

It's the first time I've driven our long-term GS 350 F-Sport. I'm slowing the car to a full stop at a red light, and my brain registers a little buzz or flicker coming from beneath my tush. At first I assume it's my phone letting me know that a new email or text message just arrived. But my phone's not in my back pocket; it's in a cupholder. And a quick glance shows that there's no new text or email.

I immediately chalk the sensation up to "I'm Crazy" and move on. But then it happens a few more times, and I can't possibly be that crazy, can I? So I pose the question to you: What is trying to contact me from beneath the driver seat in our F-Sport-package-equipped Lexus sedan?

    Does this have one of those vibrating seat things that works with the lane departure warning or some other active safety feature?

    I think motorstreet got it, the "pre-collision system" maybe? That or the vents in the ventilated seats are dancing to the music....

    Someone else's lost phone?
