Extremely comfortable and user
friendly. Controls are logical and easy
to use. GPS guidance system is great.
Fit and finish are superb.


Best Features

Long trips are a breeze. Minimum driver fatigue or discomfort even on 500 mi+ trips.


Worst Features

Ignition / steering wheel interlock is very sensitive. Often requires several tries to get car started.

Review

Excellent in all aspects. Runs well,
easy to handle, ride is super, just
overall A+.


Best Features

Everything. It's hard to pick just one. Seats would have to be a top pick. The automatic windshield wipers are super.


Worst Features

None

Review

The ride quality is very good, but not
as good as my 1998 Cadillac Concours.
The appointments are top notch. I
still have not read the entire owners
manual, so there is still much to learn
about the NAV system. The car is easy
to manuver in tight parking spaces. The
fit and finish is excellent. The only
gripe is the seats are very stiff. I
am used to a little more cushioning. I
would suggest that Lexus think about
who is purchasing the vehicle. Not a
kids car. I'm 50 years old and need a
little more cushioning for my back.
Would I purchase another one....not
sure.


Best Features

Smoothness of the power train.


Worst Features

More cushioning in the seats.

Review

This car is a joy to get into and drive
every time. Hard to believe they could
make a vehicle so enjoyable to drive in
all conditions and even sitting in
traffic is nice because of the great
sound system ( I used to be a Hi-Fi
dealer) and the filtered air comming
into the car.


Best Features

The third generation GPS map system is unbelievable. After 9 months we're still finding new amenities.


Worst Features

Small mud flaps for the rear wheels

Review

Although we have had the car for only a
little over a month, I couldn't be more
pleased. The car rides very firmly, it
handles well, has more power than you
would ever need and is very comfortable
and spacious. If I could change one
thing it would be the front seats,
making them wrap a little more, but
they make up for that by being tall
enough to make the head rest
comfortable and useable. Great car,
worth the money and fun to own.


Best Features

GPS, really a neat feature, should be on all cars. The horsepower is nice too.


Worst Features

Make front seats "wrap" around a little more, would enhang performance image and feel, not taking anything away from looks.
