Never bought a car for the ride but one Lexus test drive had me hooked. Originally came from the Volvo for Life Family but Volvo sold me a 2003 XC90 with too many problems. I want quality, safety, service, and piece of mind. Instantly fell in love with Lexus hybrid ride. Could not tell SUV was on. Talk about get up & go. This baby has power. I keep the cruse control on because I am worried about speeding. It is like floating on a cloud, dont realize how fast youre going. Was hoping for better gas mileage. Getting anywhere from 26 to 27 mpg (drive both highway and city). Better than what I was getting before so Im still pleased. Manual says it gets better after 5000 miles. Will see.
Use Sprint Sanyo Katana phone for Blue tooth system. Awesome. Displays battery and signal strength, & phone connection (helps when I forget phone). Can dial by voice and clearly yell at son when homework is not done. GPS gives clear directions on what lane to be in, helps when lost in LA rush hour.
Just trivial stuff. Seats in back dont fold flat, I transport dachshunds and prefer them to be level. Purchased cargo tray to protect rear carpet, quality is not that great, expected same quality as all weather floor mats. Prefer Sirius over XM radio. Mudguards have problem, still waiting for fix.
