I had looked and test drove many cars before buying my Lexus. It is so comfortable in the driver's seat that I wish I can bring it into my TV room. The ride is quiet; one can hardly heard the road sounds. Performance is outstanding and the structure itself seems very secure. I was looking uppermost for safety, quality and performance and received all three. My only disappointments are that the trunk design and inside compartments in my previous car, 2004 Toyota Solara were superior. Outside of that, I love my Lexus and I have received many compliments on the color, Cashmere Satin.
Seat comfort; heated seats; navigation; leather steering wheel; safety features include airbags for backseat passengers.
Check out Toyota Solara's trunk and try to duplicate it in the Lexus. It has handy permanent slots on the side to hold stuff and seems to have more space.
