It handles beautifully, has a rich carmel leather interior, navigation, rear backup monitor is helpful and portability of back seats allow transporting things for design business. It is my first Lexus - still learning all the features of the Hybred but the "power button" is great feature if needed to accelerate quickly in traffic. Car Max sales person was very helpful, went beyond her scope of duties.
I bought the car to have a comfortable, fuel-efficient vehicle for a very annoying commute. I average 47 mpg and have been delighted with the performance of the car. It is very comfortable for 4 passengers, and I've have had NO mechanical problems. The Lexus staff is much more respectful than the Toyota guys, so I'm happy to pay a few grand more for great service.
