if this guy really likes it (and can't stop revving up the engine), then you know it's gotta be good...
Given that I'll always have an SUV tow vehicle in my garage, I think I could live happily with one of these. I'm going to wait for 2017s to hit their 3-year-old off-lease status; all of the safety stuff became standard in that year. I really like the idea of an old-school sedan that can probably do 250k near trouble-free miles.
I like this move better. I also want you to know that I have your best interests at heart.

Of all the letters in the alphabet...why did they pick the letter F to represent their sport models?

F-Sport is a great choice if you want the looks and driving experience especially if it's loaded up with that Dynamics package or something. But if you go with Luxury trim you will get the interior and seats out of this world. Current GS interior has inferior interior technology compared to current midsize premium sedans but the layout and quality is like it was made for 19MY
I'm going to keep my eye out for a nice RWD '15 with at least the Luxury Package.
A great, and very overlooked car. Surprisingly athletic and good to drive, as well. The shift towards SUV's has not done these things any favors in the resale value department, so they are great buys. Probably only other lux sedan in its category and era that I'd consider is an A6. Both are far better than a CTS, F10 5 Series, or E Class. Only real downsides are modest power, and mediocre infotainment.
This isn't the most well designed setup in the world:
I also don't think the F-Sport package is worth it, at least for what I want. More expensive tires and apparently brakes, more stuff to break, heavier, more expensive in general. Adjustable suspension is sort of cool, but also sort of dumb. A base car + good tires should do it.
The GS is a great car, great platform, as long as you're not looking for a sports car, you can't be displeased with what it has to offer. The 3.5 in that car is hands down the best V6 I've ever driven and I think the fact that they've been using that motor for more or less a decade says a lot. It's reliable, quiet, comfortable, but quick and a little fun. I'd really love a GS-F.
