Lexus nailed it with this one. Great exterior design. It looks both sporty and elegant. The interior is typical lexus - well appointed and comfortable. I just felt at home the first time I took it for a test drive and the experience has gotten better each time. The engine is silky smooth and responsive when you need it. I look forward to getting behind the wheel.
The resale value of a Lexus - you can't beat it. Specific to this car: The keyless entry is awesome. What a great feature to add. I also think the integrated bluetooth phone sounds wonderful. The keyless entry, bluetooth phone and push button start make you feel like James Bond.
The gear ratios seem set up for fuel economy - which is a good thing. You need to use the 'power mode' to get the sportier ride out of it. What I don't understand is why the car is always in 5th gear when engaging the sequential shifter. Why can't it engage while remaining in the current gear?
