I cannot begin to tell you how much we love this car.
This is the 3rd Lexus in a row.
First was a very fast/fun/reliable SC, (lasted to about 350,000 miles and still running) 2nd was an RX300 (not quite as reliable, but good enough I guess - traded at 194,000)
This one though, is still better than both previous - only things added were trailer hitch, trailer lighting cord ("factory," just plugged it in to a provided and conveniently located chassis harness).
"GADGETS" all seem to work wonderfully and its packed with gadgets.
Wonderful comfortable ride.
cutest gadget is the headlight washers (I can't help it, I like the way they pop put of the bumper and flood the front lights)
best gadget is the GPS and backup camera (although the backup camera isn't incredibly useful in my opinion)
I like the voice interface for the GPS/radio/etc.
GPS was extremely easy to upgrade (though not necessarily inexpensive at $169.00)
Some complain about how they work, but our fully automatic wipers work extremely well for us - we just leave them in full automatic setting for the most part
I liked the dedicated turn lamps on our old SC when the turn signals were activated - I wish I had those back
A third seat option might be nice as we get more grandchildren
I wish it was tow-able "4 wheels down" (our 2001 was tow-able 4 wheels down - like behind an RV)
The HID headlights do aim in the direction I turn, but they don't seem to be particularly useful or add any "road information" in my opinion
