I looked long and hard for a car. thought about the acura rsx - was too small. thought about a bmw - i'm sick of bmw's, so i decided on the lexus is. i like it alot. it's a pleasure on the highway. only complaint - it's a bit of a gas guzzler, and the rear seats don't fold down, make storage small. but i'd buy/lease it again if i had to do it over...
acceleration once you hit 3000 rpms. great sound system.
rear seat fold down. we're a younger lexus driver - we need space for our mountain bikes, etc... better gas mileage. volume control on steering wheel. location of cup holders is poor if you drive the manual - you basically can't put any drinks there - or you hit it every time you shift.
