I have the engine sound enhancement turned off. First thing I tried. It's still very noisy.As joschneider said, hopefully the engine noise is because of the enhanced engine note. It should be in the Vehicle settings in the infotainment.
How was the road trip for you? Comfortable? How'd it compare to your last car?
The trip went great. The seats were extremely comfortable once I got them adjusted.
The car has MASSIVE power that is there from the moment you touch the gas, all the way through to the top speeds I reached. (and they were way higher than I probably should have gone) The power caught me by surprise several times until I learned not to be so heavy on the pedal.
The handling is also incredible. This is my first AWD vehicle so I can't compare it to anything, but this car sticks to the ground like it's glued there and reacts to the steering wheel like it knew ahead of time where you wanted to go. It really is quite impressive.
My previous car was a 2011 Acura TL so there isn't much comparison. I loved the Acura. It was without a doubt the most reliable, comfortable car I have ever owned, to date.
Because of that, my decision this time was between the TLX and the G70. The TLX was the safe choice, but it just didn't excite me. The G70 made my man parts tingle and that's what really made it my choice.
