Overall this is an excellent vehicle
for someone who doesn't go off-road
but wants a less than full size sport
wagon. It rides very well, shows
excellent construction and has a super
dealer network that treats you like
royalty. The only negatives I have
found are the short turning radius,
more wind noise than I expected in a
Lexus when on the highway and the
plastic interior moulding/trim that is
prone to scratches.
The body design and the ease of
handling are my favorite features.
As suggested improvements I would
extend the wheel base and overall
length of the vehicle just enough to
get a shorter turning radius. Also, I
would construct the interior moulding
trim out of a more scratch resistant
