Very smooth transmission. Great, quiet ride. Great radio and sound. I expected more than cardboard on door panels. Flimsy glove compartment door, trunk lid. Not enough front seat thigh support. Navigation system a colossal disappointment. It is practically useless outside major metro areas. Pretty picture, though. No way to open trunk if power lost. Fold down rear seatbacks with full access to trunk would be great. Front end too low, scrapes most curbs. Fatter tires would give even smoother ride. Roof line too low for tall people. Does not come with body side moldings, door sides are naked to damage. Support has been minimal from Lexus headquarters and dealership.
Ride. Fuel economy. Expected reliability.
No chrome inside vehicle, reflections like looking into the sun. More substantial glove compartment door coin door and trunk lid. Raise front end an inch or so. A better navigation system. I bought a Garmin and don't use the Lexus nav.
