Worthy successor to the LeSabre/Park Avenue. The CXS has plenty of room, excellent build quality, perfect ergonomics and a smooth, quiet ride. I have received many positive comments about the car, including the cocoa/cashmere interior, which is new for 07. I checked out an Avalon and the quality and ergonomics of the Lucerne are superior. And no recalls for steering failure or reported transmission issues that have plagued the Avalon. The Northstar delivers turbine-like power with no audio drama. You step on the gas and it moves. The steering is tight and direct which makes this much more of a drivers car than the Ultra, while still a very comfortable cruiser on the open road.
The cooled seats are my favorite feature, with the integrated navigation and audio system a close second. Remote start is third.
XM, Nav, traffic, and Bluetooth integration for a cell phone would be welcome additions to the navigation/audio system.
