"Coming out of a BMW, this car presented a wonderful, straight ahead ride, but the handling is ponderous (it wants to go straight!).Most of the gadgets are great, but there is a Nanny on board that prohibits usage of just about everything except the sound system when moving. Also, every time you start the car, you must agree to drive carefully, obey laws, etc., etc. LAWYER ON BOARD!! Dealer service is excellent, but ridiculously pricey. How about $262 for an oil change and rotation! Shame on me? Did I mention that it is depreciating at about $1,000 a month. Buy a used one, make sure the driver's side wind noise has been corrected, and enjoy a very nice ride - but not the bargain it used to be."
"I love this car as far as comfort, handling, and performance go. Lexus put in a lot of great features, however, many are unusable while you are driving. Once you exceed a certain speed (maybe 30 mph) you can't dial the bluetooth phone, enter or change a destination in the nav system, watch a DVD, etc. What good is a DVD if your passenger can't watch it on a trip? What good is a nav system if you can't change it en route without stopping? Buy this car for the comfort and styling, not the extras."
"hAVING OWNED 2 PREVIOOUS LEXUS MODELS I THOUGHT I HAD AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT. BOY WAS I WRONG!
THIS FAR EXCEEEDS ANYTHING LEXUS HAS MADEIN THE PAST. SYLING IS IMPROVED BUT NOT GREAT. THE INTERIOR AND THE RIDE IS SECOND TO NONE. IF U CAN AFFORD IT IT WILL BE THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY IN A LUXURY CAR U WILL FIND."
