We were thoroughly impressed with this
vehicle since first test driving one in
2000. Thought about an '04
(they are very nice,too), but the
'01-'03 model is just more fluid, had
better takeoff, and considerably less
engine noise. The interior is
definitely upscale. All that wood makes
you feel like you're driving around in
a den. More leg room, especially in the
back, than most of the other SUVs we
drove. We have the blue mist with black
leather,with every option except AWD
and Navigation, and it is simply
beautiful. This is one nice vehicle.
Just what I expected from a Lexus.
All the options(wood everywhere, HIDs,
etc.), and safety features(standard
side airbags, LATCH for carseats,
etc.). The reclining, and sliding rear
seats. Sound system. Unlike a lot of
other reviewers, I like the Display
panel. Rear spoiler makes it look even
In-dash 6-CD changer, power rear door,
rear cupholders(these are on the '04).
Can't really think of anything else.
