Purchased early summer and used daily. I knew that a diesel would deliver better mileage, but 27MPG highway mileage is even better than expected. The car has not had a single glitch since delivery. It's been perfect. The diesel has a half- second of lag off the line, but once the turbo kicks in, the power is impressive. The diesel plus the 7 speed transmission is a perfect combination for a big SUV. I'm sure the US car makers will scramble to catch up; or find a way to suppress diesels.
The interior design is what sold us. The big Lexus looked like a South Florida sunroom. We love the dashboard design and stitching, and the firm seats.
The gizmo for selecting gears is needlessly fussy. It leaves me guessing as to whether I've actually selected D-R-P.
