Just turned 25,000 miles today. The computer says I should need my third oil change at around 30,000 miles. So far two oil changes have been 100% of all repairs and maint. Has not been to the dealer since the day I picked it up. How many Lexus owners can say that? While almost no one knows what it is (the styling is a little too bland) all agree it looks inside and out like a modern luxury sedan. Love the sound of the Northstar with dual exhaust. Even with my less than gental driving I average over 19 mpg. With $3.25 gas I guess I would probably buy the v-6 if I had to do it again however.
Super comfortable expanded leather front seats. Never have a car without remote start again. Exhaust tone.
Dash looks a little low end. Looks like an Impala dash board. Move the stearing wheels controls. Always hitting them inadvertantly.
