"There are not many improvements on the newer models after 10 years Extremely poor lights for front panel control. Some of the control switch are so difficult to reach even under daylite. In newer models the displays such as clock, temperature gauge and mileage are even more difficult to read. Rear vision is so obstructed I nearly had several accidents in the night driving. However, the reliability is superb and the allover performance is above average. 4-wheel drive works excellent in the New England winter. The front leather seat is comfortable and suitable for long drive."

"The luxury and comfort this vehicle has is amazing. I wanted a hybrid because I drive a lot for my work and often have clients with me. So I had very specific features I needed. This car met them all and was a hybrid to boot. The only thing I'm not used to is the top heaviness of it make it a bit twitchy, but I came from an Audi allroad which is much lower to the ground and has more of a sport car feel. Love the car, has everything I wanted and more !"

"A really great car, expensive but holds its value, Dealer serviced every 5,000 miles as Lexus wants it done, by Lexus dealer. Easy to drive in snow and rain. More automatic things on this car than I have used."
