My car rides and looks the part... but hesitates shifting on highway and in town. I had to have the drive shaft replaced luckily under warranty. It recently started squealing like a bad belt. I have had to replace the brakes at only 55k. The maintenance is definitely way more than their over blown reputation.
I do like the steering wheel controls and comfy seats. I also enjoy the remote control access to trunk.
I would like to see Lexus offer an improved drivetrain with fewer maintenance problems.
