Traded in 01 Merc E class. The Lexus rides very smoothly but understeers severely and feels boaty on curves. The ruby red paint quality is pitiful with the slightest impact even with such items as cardboard or plastic scratching the paint surface. The car was supposed to be a Lexus CPO but came with several problems including warped front brake rotors, dead batteries in key fob, floor board shimmy, unbalanced wheels and paint colored wax covering prior owner's scratches which washed off during the first car wash. CPO may only be worth the warranty, the rest is a gimmick.
Bluetooth stereo, smooth ride.
Improve the paint quality seriously and now. Sunroof shade needs louvers to vent hot air when tilted. Driver seat needs lateral support. Steering needs to convey more confidence and on center feel. Vinyl door surfaces need better stain protection against shoe sole scuffing, increase space in console.
