This car was bought for my wife; I drive a Porsche Cayenne. I think it is wise to point out a few differences in the vehicles. 1. This Lexus is really big and bulky. It does everything you want, but there is no escaping the fact that this is a large truck based SUV. The acceleration and handling is not as good as our other vehicle. The interior is quiet, but not as quiet as a nice sedan. I read one review that described it as a graceful hippopotamus and I think that sums it up perfectly. If you are looking for a capable, big, strong SUV, then this is the one for you. If you are looking for performance and agility, then I think the Porsche Cayenne beats it hands down.
1. This will certainly be a long term rock solid vehicle. It feels solid and secure 2. It has a nice and comfortable interior
1. Interior is not laid out as well as I would have expected. Strange location for memory seat buttons. Hard to reach window buttons. Overall, it could look a little more graceful and be a little more intuitive. 2. iPod compatibility 3. Ability to fold rear seat completely flat
