Purchased 11/05 and have loved this vehicle since. Test drove 2002 Lexus 300 ES and 2003 Infiniti I35 same day. The RL ride was outstanding, precise, solid, but not harsh. White Pearl finish is outstanding, like new. Interior fit is great. The only nuisance so far is the SRS light comes on periodically and appears related to the driver seatbelt. Easy to reset. I have read that this is a common complaint. Overall, a great, underrated vehicle with outstanding features.
Great Bose stereo, outstanding ride/steering. High quality interor with wood, leather, etc. Overall quality of the build is excellent.
Larger gas tank. Rear/side window shades. Driver sunvisor bumps the rearview mirror when flipped up? Seems like a engineering oversight.
