I love this car. It is my 1st car, and although parts cost a fortune and I had to change a few things, I consider it a fairly reliable car, especially considering its whole life it was used mainly for city driving.
Performance is not great, I got a best of firstname.lastname@example.org, but I'm sure if the car was new the ET would be better. If from a stop the car is pretty slow, on the highway the V6 shows its advantage much more.
Handling is very good for this type of car.
What I love most is the luxury and quality of the car as a whole. Every single thing on this car shows that it is a true luxury car, great materials, nothing cheap.
And of course, the prestige that comes with the Lexus name.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
