My wife wanted a luxury car so we did the Mercedes/BMW/Jaguar deal. I was most concerned about reliability since we were looking at $60k or more so I pushed for the Lexus and I am glad that I did. I have owned tons of cars and by far this is the best when you consider everything. I have since purchased 2 other older Ls 400's for our two sons and they have been wonderful as well. You can't beat this car for reliability as my 175k never in the shop miles prove. I just change the oil.
Handles and rides well and car looks great after 5 years and all those miles.One would never guess the miles unless I told them.
