Have been a Mercedes S class and Cl owner for 25 years. Can't afford either any longer in this economy. Looked at the E class, XJ,XF, and BMW 550 (no interior storage). Passed a Lexus dealer and went in. Saw a great looking car, went for a test drive. Never left B4 leasing the Sport LS, it has every option and package that Lexus offers. The Sport suspension gives great road feedback and cornering ability. The Sport transmission gives amazing shifts and power. The body cladding, fabulous wheels, summer tires, and interior make this car something special. It is " Purrfect." Always thought a Lexus was a " Grandpa " car. Wow was I wrong!!
Exterior Design, Interior Design, Easy Electronics, Comfort,Huge Trunk, Great Ride. Fabulous Engine, Suspension, and Transmission. Lexus service...Called for the 1000 mile checkup, Didn't even have drive to the dealer. A technician came to my home! Benz never offered that kind of convenience.
Only a couple. Needs a blind spot indicator in side view mirrors. Voice Command for the phone could be quicker like a Mercedes.
