I bought the LX new in September 2009. I am still not used to the SUV differences from my previous Toyota Camry. I find it noisy, my #1 complaint, even though I had it undercoated, there is still a lot of road noise and there is a lot of wind noise in the windshield area. The gas mileage is also not as good as advertised. I would spend a lot more time test driving other makes next time.
Style and comfort, great in the snow with AWD and Vehicle Stability.
I find that the hp is fine, even though that is a big complaint with most. The NOISE is my biggest concern; after our winter in Az., I will return it to the dealer who, at purchase time, installed a bug deflector, to see if this is the cause of the wind noise.
