Purchased this car because I needed an AWD vehicle but did not want an SUV. Test drove the Audi A4 but went with the Lexus b/c of reliability. This car is fun to drive and has made my commute more enjoyable. It needs more power. In the Power mode, it's a dream but in regular mode, it's quite sluggish. The ride itself is smooth and the interior is comfortable. I'm getting used to the brakes - I'm used to pressing the brake and coming to an immediate standstill, the brakes on the Lexus tend to "glide" a little more. The back seat is small but my 2 kids (age 9 and 3) don't seem to mind. Handles like a dream. Fuel economy is great. I love it!
Heated seats, automatic lights, looks great, Handling is a dream, smooth ride.
Needs more power. Back seat could be bigger. I wish the door had a side rail - I park in a garage in NYC and I know its only a matter of time before the doors start getting dings
