This is my third Lexus and it is every
bit a Lexus - which is a good thing!
(Previously owned '96 ES300 and '99
LX470) My wife is short and petite,
and although this is not a performance
car like my '99 Vette Convertible
or '97 911 Carrera S, it fits her
perfectly and she likes it much
better. Having a manual top in the
Vette, the automatic top is great -
especially as we age! And for the
price, any performance shortcomings are
easily forgiven. If you want to win
points and spoil your wife, this is the
Lexus build quality and materials. NO
other manufacturer - especially German -
can touch the quality of a Lexus. Oh,
the others are fun to drive, for a
while, but when your bones ache, a
Lexus feels great. That is probably
why I keep coming back.
Get rid of the back seats. Put the top
open/close button where the hazard
button is (more comfortable reach for
the short people).
