away from this Lexus. It has a very
bad case of dead pedal, and the
transmission flat out sucks. With

don't think that the gas mileage is
going to get any better, either. I
didn't know about the problems until
tonight when my wife pointed them out

dealer this week, and as far as I am
concerned they will make it run right
or they can keep the junk until they

Best Features
