Bought the 2004 Lexus because I drove the RX 300 and loved it. Yet this car has disappointed. The transmission lags horribly! Going from a stop, you press on the gas with no response and then a huge lurch forward. We took it into the dealer and explained the problem and they insisted nothing was wrong and it was "how they all run". Only to talk to them 4 years later and they admit that this car was underpowered. However, the styling, space, and comfort was exceptional.
User friendly navigation, reclining rear seats, backup camera, power lift gate.
Horrible transmission (we are waiting for them to put a v8 in), dashboard creaks, large dark space when headlights are on the road.
