Learning the Techie Side of My ES350
December 3, 2018
Shopping for my third Lexus, Nick Falsafi presented several choices to me, and I finally settled on a Starfire Pearl ES 350. Admittedly, the cool looking wheel covers probably swayed me. I considered a Hybrid, but I opted for the gasoline version after seeing how much the batteries reduced my trunk space. On long trips, I???ve been able to nurse over 30MPG from it. New cars today are filled with potentially intimidating technology. Julie Kobayashi displayed both her technological expertise and patient teaching skills, when she and I sat in the front seat and she walked me through my new car???s features. We discussed the radio, GPS, telephone, and steering wheel controls. When she helped me set up the SiriusXM radio, she tuned into Channel 16, The Blend. ???A funny name,??? I thought. ???Why would someone listen to that station???? Today, it???s the primary channel I listen to. Julie and I laughed and joked and she did a great job acquainting me with the technology, but some of it can be heavy stuff! So please don???t tell her that I???ve gone back and read through the manuals provided to reinforce what I learned! In conclusion, Nick and I together chose a fine car, and Julie showed me how to effectively use it. I commend both.
