This is the third Lexus (of four) I've bought since 1991. The two LS, one each SC and RX have each been tops in reliability, luxury and overall quality. An old friend advised me long ago that the only way to beat the high cost of automobile ownership is to buy a really good car and maintain it forever. Maybe "forever" is a stretch, but the philosophy really pays off with these cars.
Dependability, comfort, safety.
Add a compass to the mirror (later models such as my RX 330 have this useful feature).
