Bought this new in January - 4 AWD, Love this car. You get used to the transmission lag, gas mileage is acceptable. I've run the tank down to about 16 miles left in the tank and it only cost about $33 to fill it completely back up with CA gas prices- less than $10 bucks more than the Camry I used to own. Tried everything else but this is the category killer - Consumer Reports also names this their best pick. Braking is the best I've ever seen and the navigation and rear back up camera are indespensible - they may seem like trivial expense items but are actually very very useful and helpful - you'll use them everyday.
Navigation - I never get lost anymore. Side door panels that expand for extra capacity. Stereo system and interior design elements that only are found in a Lexus. Xenon headlights for sure are a killer feature as well.
Chrome trim in interior looks and feels cheap - replacing with wood or something a little more subtle or sophticated would be better
