A really expensive Toyota Avalon
Even upkeep is expensive on this car; $1000 for full tune up. Rims tarnished badly; $625 a piece from a dealer.
Power steering pump bad; $1300.
A/C went out; $1000.
Rear view mirror stuck on dimming position; $500.
I have always wanted a Lexus, and I have owned Cadillacs, Lincolns and Mercedes.
It's a nice car, but not worth $1000 for almost every repair, and it's nearly impossible to find these in junkyards.
Lexus dealerships seem to have a snobby attitude and parts are stupidly expensive.
Reliability was good, and it better be at the prices it cost to keep the car! I understand that high end luxury cars are generally higher than a mainstream car, but this is a bit much; repairs exceed way beyond Lincoln, Cadillac and even Mercedes Benz on certain things.
I believe it's a good car, but it's best to get a one new or leased, because once it breaks the price costs about as much as a two mortgages!!!
Look and design was nice, but not as flashy or elegant as other domestic or german luxury cars.
Comfort is about the same as a Toyota Avalon. I'm not knocking the car, but if you have owned American or German luxury, stick with Cadillac, Benz and Lincoln; I know I will.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
