ReviewA quality vehicle that leaves little
to ask for even in the base model. It
can be expected to hold value. With a
smooth ride and comfortable interior
this "heavy" SUV gets good MPG for
it's weight,shape and V-8 engine.
Handling is good. Entry/exit using
running boards can be cumbersome.
Fit/finish, both in and out, is
typical high quality Lexus. Stock
highway tires? Switch to Michelin X-
Country tires which, in my
opinion, should come standard on this
type of vehicle. Flush folding rear
seats would be a welcome design
change. Like the rear door,
a "door/gate" that would permit rear
door to convert into a tailgate would
be welcome. Overall..Great SUV
Best FeaturesSpare with alloy wheel allowing seamless rotation. Quiet interior. Comfortable ride and adept handling. Overall high quality inside and outside. Adjustable suspension.
Worst FeaturesBetter stock tires. Power folding rear mirrors. Redesign items mentioned in the review (rear door/gate and flush folding rear seats). Better cabin storage space e.g. cell phone storage bin near the accessory power outlet. Lower rear seat headrests.
