Overall the car is great with some
issues I can't believe Lexus missed like
usable storage and room, amenities like
memory seat, more adjustable steering,
and tire replacement difficulty. I have
a BMW and they can get these items
right. Great handling doesn't forgive
these items since most people don't push
the handling to the limit.
Interior design, rims, stereo, smooth
Cheap finish around interior controls,
cig lighter too small to use for cel
plug, tires bubble from slightest bump
and wear out too quick. Replacement
tire impossible to find. Front paint
damages too easy.
This is a great car, but I have had a
couple problems with it. No matter
what the dealer tells you about rear
wheel cars, don't believe it. I had a
$13,000 front wheel drive car for 7
years. I lived in NJ, PA, IL, and SD
(Yes, South Dakota). I lived in rain,
snow, sleet, and ice. Out of the 7
years, I never got in an accident and
never get stuck. I then traded it for a
$33,000 rear wheel Lexus last year.
Since I have had this rear wheel drive
car, I have fishtailed a dozen times,
got stuck in the snow 3 times, and
yesterday (the cherry on top of the
sundae) slid off the road into a
Power, e-shift, xeon lights
Bigger truck, more space in backseat,
gear shift should not be made of metal,
gets too hot in summer.
This is a great car. Especially when
you consider that the direct
competition (BMW 330i) is several
thousand more for a comparably
equipped model. Highly recommended.
I purchased the vehicle at JM Lexus in
Margate, FL and wouldn't hesitate to
buy there again. Their
professionalism was second to none.
Performance, acceleration, handling,
the engine sound (with the windows
open). Too many to list.
