I am not a car fanatic nor do I know much about mechanics, performance, etc. What I will tell you is that I just traded my 1997 Mercedez C280 in for the Lexus ES 350. I drove the 2008 BMW 328, Mercedes C300, Cadillac CTS, Audi A4 and A6. The Lexus is by far the most comfortable and quite ride. More power then you could possibly need and the nav and audio system is a dream. The car has a beautiful interior with too many safety features to list here. Lets just say I love this car.
Seats, nav system, back up camera.
Would like to be able to active the automatic seat adjustment before I get into the car. My wife is very little and I have to stuff myself in after she drives by activating the adjustment with a button on the door.
