Review

nothing really thrilling about the
eshift automatic. This car is loaded
yes but the automatic is so boring to
drive and the handling is ok but not
all that - rear wheel sucks who
cares. after 2 mos I am buying a Saab
9-3 Arc. thankfully with the dealer
incents I am not losing my shirt on the
lexus. Make sure you test drive
Saabs, Audis etc This is really a
revved up camry and I am not so happy.
oh yeah and after 20K of boring drivng
you'll have to cough up over a grand
for the new tires you need. Also the
service coverage ends with the first
oil change so get out your $$


Best Features

6 CD changer but you can get that from anyone now nothing relaly thrills me about it the looks are ok


Worst Features

the seat is not comfortable and the interior is so cheap and plastic compared to most any car at this price point esp SAAB - don't do it you will be disappointed- Euro Cars feel much better

Review

I test drove several other vehicles
(Acura's, Infiniti, etc...) The Lexus
is by far the best. Handles like a
dream, well made and the
instrumentation is intelligently
designed. It has a beautifully smooth
ride, but feels "tight" when you want
to drive aggressively. By far the best
car for a young adult with more mature
needs (family etc...) but having that
sports car drive. Kudos.


Best Features

Great handling, responsiveness is instantaneous, almost like it reads your mind. Very smartly designed instruments. Good power. No engineering defects or electrical problems like some european cars.


Worst Features

Add a turbocharger. Somehow also improve fuel economy (tank is 15 gal, gets about 300miles to a tank - could we ask for 350 or so?) :-)
