This is my third Lexus. I have received this model as the loaner during service at our dealership over the last 7 years and am impressed at the changes between the ES300, 330 and this one. The ride is sportier and quicker than previous models without sacrificing comfort. The relative value is unbeatable. The price for what you get is pretty much unmatched in any other cars I looked at in this price range. Reliability is also going to be better than BMW and Mercedes. I highly recommend this car.
Acceleration, comfort, steering, quiet cabin.
Move center console button to a spot where the average driver's elbow rests. I keep popping mine open accidentally. Old habits are hard to break! Premium radio could use an upgrade (definitely not Mark Levinson).
