I have had this car for over 4 years. I have had warped brakes, a bad CD player and a bad blower fan. Other than that I have had no issues with this car at all. I have loved every minute of driving it. My lease expires in June (54 month lease. I would recommend this car to anyone. I am considering keeping it, but I will likely buy a new 2005 TL. It has been a great ownership experience. I have had other good reliable cars (Toyotas) but none were as fun as this TL.
The driving position and overall comfort. It is very comfortable on long trips
Could be a little quieter. Drop down back seats would have been nice.
