Everyone who sees the car remarks about the fit & finish. Everything fits together perfectly and works perfectly. While the exterior may share some styling with the Lexus ES, you know you’re driving a top-of-the-line car once you are inside. In contrast to many European rivals, all the controls and buttons are easy to understand. Many of these have adjustable features which can be set by the owner or the dealer (like how long the interior lights stay on after you shut the door.). Actual mileage is 22 MPG, overall.
The upgraded ML stereo has many nice features like a hard drive to store songs (You can choose MP3 quality or near-CD quality). Rear seat sound quality is excellent, front seat sound is very good.
Lexus could improve on some of the more basic functions: wind noise rushing past the side windows, more supportive seats and better sound quality for front passengers from the ML system.
