Just traded up from my 2004 limited AWD model to the 2006. Great improvements. I loved the 2004, and the 2006 is that much better. The Bluetooth phone interface is much better than on my wife's Lexus, and the ride is quieter and smoother than 2004. The navigation system is improved functionally and cosmetically -- the graphics are better (especially when showing freeway lanes), and it gives more accurate directions than the 2004. The memory seats and power passenger seat are appreciated. Like the larger DVD screen in rear. With AWD, I did not get the power rear seat, but not a big deal. Seats are so easy to lower anyway. Great car to drive, and my passengers enjoy riding in it.
Ability to watch DVD from front seat while in Park (can't do this on our Lexus). Great navigation system. The Bluetooth hands-free is wonderful, easy to use, better reception than I get on the phone alone. Rear camera, sonar combination is great. Laser cruise control is great in heavy traffic.
Rain-sensing wipers and articulating headlights. You've got every other luxury available, why not these?? Would like a switch to turn on the rear camera even when not in reverse. Would be great when carrying a large package in rear. Heated, massing rear seats would make this truly superb!
