I came from a 2005 Volvo XC90. Bought this Lexus without driving it or even sitting in it. It does not hold a candle to the Volvo. It is difficult to get in (I am 5'7", female), feels like sitting in a truck, the third row seating is a joke (took them out). There is not much cargo space (compared to the Volvo). The second row seating is terrible when folded. It folds against the front seats and uses a lot of space to do so. There is no passage through the front bucket seats to the back (pets, children, items in back) when the second row seat is folded up. The Volvo second row seat folds into the floor, totally out of site and flat, as does the thrid row seat. On this Lexus the rear (fifth) door is poor planning. it does not stay open by itself and if a vehicle is parked behind you, the door can not open fully. The bluetooth does not work clearly ( I am told it sounds like I am in a barrel). The fuel latch is difficult to reach if you are seated. The mirror controls are too far away to position the mirrors in your normal driving position. There is no quick way to use speed control to a/c. Actually I could go on and on.....
