This is my first Lexus and most certainly not my last. It's funny how people don't understand how nice a Lexus is until they actually own one. They do so many little things to their vehicles that other's don't. When you finally own a car that's made in Japan, you'll understand. Yes, there is a known transmission jerk that you learn to avoid, trust me I own one. Plus, the dealer has a flash for the ECU to almost fix it.
Comfort. Every car I've ever owned I get more and more uncomfortable the longer the trip. The exact opposite happens in this vehicle. By the way, it has enough power and handling to satisfy the 30 plus crowd, under 30 need not apply.
Cup holders, it's designed for Venti Starbucks coffee and nothing else, granted thats what I put in there 90% of the time.
