Excellent Car! — Typical Toyota/Lexus: well engineered, ergonomically sound, well built, great value. It doesn't handle or accelerate like a sports car, but then I didn't think it would. It is very, very comfortable, beautiful (much more attractive than current cars are), still solid feeling and tight despite being 13 years old and with 124k on the clock when I bought it. I would not consider buying an American, German, Korean, or Swedish car of that age/mileage. Didn't even think twice about buying this one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth ride, reliable as a hammer, solid feel.

Cons: I wish it got better mileage.  But it is what it is, and I knew what I was getting when i bought it.

The Lexus — I got this car back in 2004 and have loved it since the day I bought it. My wife drives it mainly now since I got the escalade. Its a fast luxury vehicle that is cost efficient and gets great gas millage.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: solid car, just general maintence, and the cost of a badass system

Cons: cant think of anything.

Good Buy By OKqPwixvGDuXgylmrIJ

These would make great cars for anyone, with low mileage. I like the not overly-complicated dash and radio controls. The sound system is fantastic, loud and accurately recreated. The six disc change... Read More

Lemon By tillie_b

The car looked great, but it almost immediately developed issues. Yes, I bought it used and should have known that it had an engine recall in its past. What a mistake. They called me 'smoky' at wor... Read More
