The car has everything I was looking for -- the SUV seating, the car like ride, the Lexus luxury, the MPG, and a high tech toy. This is my first hybrid and the transition is indictable. Other than watching the screen, you can not tell when you are using gas or electric. It's amazing. This is a very high tech vehicle and you need to be prepared to study the manuals. It's hard to appreciate touching the car door and it opens, then having the seats conform to your driver position, and then touching the start button only to hear the silent sound of the A/C working. Oh yes, and your phone was also connected in the process. This is an amazing vehicle!
The ride, luxury, keyless entry, keyless starts button, memory seats, Bluetooth, and clean lines without any silly roof racks.
The tail gate should be auto when opening from the rear. It should work the same as with the remote. There should be more power plugs and they should be better located. The manuals are required reading and they could be better written. The Nav system should not lock you out while moving.
