I've owned this vehicle for about a year now, and this is the best vehicle out there for the money. This is a luxury vehicle, not a high performance sports car. Lexus sets the bench mark and now every other cross-over SUV out there is making lookalikes. The cabin is very quiet and comfortable. The ride is smooth, not stiff like some other SUVs. Quality materials and craftmanship is very evident. This vehicle is heavier than your sedan, but it has lots of power for your thirst. Lexus really design this vehicle to not only satisfy your needs, but to pamper you. Also styling is top class, better than BMW X5 and or the Mercedes look.
High tech and comfort features: voice command nav sys, rear view camera + auto dim and tilt down side mirrors with memory settings, bluetooth for hands free cell phone, powered lift tail-gate with remote, auto windshield wipers, lots of cabin lighting, cup holders. Lights up when entering or exiting.
Nice to have iPod connectivity. Currently solution is to use cassette adapter. Who plays/buys cassettes these days? A push button start and smart entry system like the Lexus sedans should be available.
