Last car was 2002 Acura 3.2 TL, very good car however the transmission had to be replaced under warranty at 24,000 miles. Got nervous and bought new 2005 Lexus. Very nice car, more prestige than Acura TL, also larger than Acura TL. Colour is alabaster with black interior,very sharp. Also got optional Package "A" for $4000.00 CDN more. Got 29 MPG on first tank of gas, I think is good. No regrets so far in purchase.
Like the optional sunroof, my wife likes the optional pedal adjustment, 17 inch are nice,very good sound system.
Lower prices for options. Should be as long or slightly longer than the new 2005 Avalon.
