Let me preface that rather than write a review when I first obtained the car, let me share my experiences toward the end of my 36 month lease.
Approaching month 34...
very amazed and impressed of the handling during freezing rain, snow and icy weather.
Ive driven through actual snow storms and the car handled really well while other cards just spun around or were completely helpless!
I felt really confident driving this around in snow!
*I drove highway miles averaging 33- 34 mpg using premium fuel!
*Dealer provided excellent customer service during my visits for service
* I really enjoyed the navigation system
- friendly, easy and spot-on
Handling and steering is fantastic.
The (cooling) ventiliated seats are a lifesaver during the steamy, hot Summer months.
Im going to miss this feature since some of the German cars dont offer this nifty feature.
Sitting in driver's seat was so comfortable and felt like I was wrapped in a nice glove!
Bluetooth worked like a charm.
stereo system that came with the model was avg for a Lexus brand.
The sound quality was not rich and lacked depth.
At times, the reception would have static on AM or FM stations even while driving around my local area.
This was annoying.
This car is snug in the back; I realize this model is smaller than the ES so if its just two adults up front not to worry
Tires that came with the car are noisy; I experienced flats and theyre very expensive tires;
go with MileStar tires in the same dimensions theyre less noiser, cheaper, and handle great!
The quality of the interior is kind of lackluster to me;
plastic on the dash
