After 5 days of ownership, my biggest (only?) complaint is.....
Interior cabin noise at 70 mph+ free way speeds, particular on the junkie LA freeway pavement. This includes noise from:
- other vehicles
I have not checked the decibel level yet, but it feels qualitatively louder than my 2006 Lexus IS350.
I know one factor clearly is that the noise of my own engine isn't there to block the noise of other engines. But I still feel like I hear other cars a lot more. And the Lexus does not exactly have a noisy engine.
I am somewhat sensitive to noise, however.
I noticed the tires were pumped to 50 psi - I wonder if lowering the pressure would help? And I wonder if switching tires might help as well? (An expensive solution.)
My cheap solution is to wear my noise filter earplugs.
