With under 11k miles and 3 years of ownership with easy driving, I have had to already replace the front brake rotors from aluminum to steel (a downgrade) due to a design defect as well as a rear shock based on what the dealership described to me as a "freak faulty part". Right now, the front facing A/C vents are spewing cold air on the drivers side and hot air on the passenger side without dual climate control enabled, if it pushes air out the front facing vents at all. Another trip to the dealership on the books.
I was looking for something different- and this is it. Smooth and enough power to make it fun. Found it!!!! I smile every time I get in the car - and with Lexus reliability- I will be doing that for a while. Not a track car - but that is not what I wanted. This is a great trip car for two! Great deals to be had on 2015!
Exciting styling, impressive craftsmanship, quality, and peace of mind reliability. I opted for this car, after researching some BMW, and Mercedes offerings, all in all this lexus fits a good balance of what's most important in the long run, comfort and reliability. Sure the German cars offer up more powerful engines, but at what cost? Theirs also the factor of the RC bold styling, no one will mistake you for the everyday beamer you see going down the road. The only cons I can nit pick at are the less then stellar MPG, the dated infotament system, and perhaps the engines modest 306hp. By all means the power is plenty for everyday driving, passing power, and adequate enough for some fun in the streets. I think any lexus owner can agree the infotainment system needs a overhaul ASAP, it's not horrible, but it's just so bland in appearance and function. Gas mileage can be decent if you baby it, however you can quickly find yourself in the 17-19mpg in the city trying to escape traffic. Over all I would by this car again, and hope to see lexus fix some of the minor issues in the future. (Turbo 6, updated infotainment, weight reduction)
