Advice: Just have a fun time, and enjoy the ride.Amazing traction. This car has great features. The sound system is second to none, and the navigation system is flawless. This car is more appealing to me, not only in style, but in features, options, and most important; performance.
Pros: Sound System, and Styling
Cons: No power close trunk
Advice: Like other owners stated, you need to learn that Lexus cars are better and they have different response with the pedal. Just be gentle with the pedal, there is NO need to gas it.Excellent acceleration. Smooth ride, NO wind noise. Try one out for yourself. Mark Levinson sound a must, navigation is excellent (plus you can watch DVD movies), but not necessary if you know how to get around town.
Pros: ML Sound System
Cons: No rear power outlet
Advice: Test drive this vehicle in 'REAL Road Conditions' (NOT a slow residential area) Doing this will show you how great this car can really be.This car IS fast. People need to learn that different cars are controlled differently. This car accelerates faster when you gradually press the accelerator pedal! DO NOT JUST FLOOR IT! You will come to find that this car has amazing potential once you learn to drive it. As with fast cars, this car has great breaks, you will definitely stop in ANY situation (and straight ahead). Test drive it on a highway and you will not be disappointed. ALSO!!! try the '4' gear when driving, it makes the car seem faster and smoother.
