2013 Lexus GS 350: Trunk Features Part Two
January 18, 2013
Under the GS 350's trunk carpet and floor there's a space-saver spare. I always find it baffling when the simple five-spoke space saver wheel is better looking than the car's primary wheels. But I digress. As you can see by the headline, we're talking about the features in our GS 350's trunk.
And any trunk tour isn't complete without discussion of the spare. So there you go.
It's hardly surprising that there's a pull handle inside the trunk lid on a Lexus. What is somewhat surprising is that it's not self closing. Not that I'm complaining. I can't figure out how to use these handles without closing my hand in the trunk so I'm an old-school closer. I just sit on the lid.
There's also this little strap (two of them, actually) which is located just inside trunk at the back of the cargo area. Any guesses?
The owner's manual says these are for locating the warning reflectors, which I suppose are packed in there somewhere, though I've yet to find them.
