Heaven on 4 wheels

2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I've always liked the looks of the RX300, but hesitated purchasing one due to what I felt were major flaws-the dark brown wood trim package, a serious blind spot, and the total lack of a console. I checked the auto show annually hoping they'ld make the necessary corrections. My prayers were answered with the RX330. Bugs are gone, and features some grewere added such as a touch-button hydraulic lift gate, plus many more, making it the perfect choice. No other SUV matches the superior looks, inside and out
Light wood trim interior/steering wheel pkg., touch button hydraulic lift gate, tilt/retracting steering wheel/full interior lighting that's activated when the ignition is turned off, "Lexus" logo cut out/lit on the running boards, int. floor lighting, and headlights that follow your steering wheel.
The mirror adjustment buttons are in an awkward place, and the nav screen needs a door that pulls down. I would love to see an extra seat added in the rear at least converting it to a 6 passenger, using rear gate entry.
