"I love this car so much. It is so convenient for a family of 5. The height and length of the car fit me well, since I am only 5'1". It accelerate very well (when it was young.) The interior is roomy and beautiful. All the knobs and buttons are within my reach since I have short arm length. Love it so much that's why I haven't part with it yet. I may consider getting another one."
Cons: "Gas mileage. The way 3rd row seats are installed."

"I actually purchased this SUV used and have not been disappointed. The exterior design of the SUV looks great. I like the way the rear door is hinged on the side and opens instead of the typical hatchback design. Although I do miss a window that opens like a hatchback. The spoiler on mine would not allow that I'm sure. The interior is nice, all leather, wood grain highly polished and beautiful. The Lexus comes loaded and you truly feel like you are in luxury with something that has the power to go off road if needed. Over 135,000 miles now and driver seat along with passenger is showing some wear on the leather where you swing in and out. The 3rd row seating is good to have. But they fold up and to the side and latch to holders on the ceiling. This takes up some valuable cargo space. I wish they were recessed in the floor and you could fold them up. The only problems I have had is the Lexus DVD player quit working. $1,200 to just replace the DVD player. Air ride quit working and has been an expensive and a difficult fix. It was first thought to be the compressor, after that costly maintenance it was found not to be the problem but something with the ECU computer piece located in the dash. Another costly fix (both close to or just over a grand). We also had to replace the radiator. Any maintenance is not cheap. One thing I have noticed is the Lexus SUV's really hold their value. Overall, I have loved this ride and feel so spoiled I cannot imagine stepping down to something else. We have taken this vehicle on several trips. Highway mileage is going to be around 18 and if you are lucky 20. Around town in the mid teens."
