I loved this car and miss it but it wasn't worth the problems we ended up having at only 87,000 miles. Especially after paying what we did.
Transmission issues a known problem I see now.
We bought it used in 2005 with only 41k miles on it from a Lexus dealer in CA and it was certified (which means nothing).
We loved it until this year, the transmission went out, which Lexus agreed to put in a refurbished tranny and we had to pay the labor $1500.00.
Then the battery went and then we started having lights go on, the traction control light would not go off, then the driver window would get stuck!
You would think a higher end car would be built better!
I loved the style.
It was roomy, it was great in the snow and it was not even 4 wheel drive.
