6-Speed Manual shown
- $14,464 - $15,802
- No trim specified for this review
- Lexus touch LCD screen are very cool, front of car looks good, sound system is clear, sleek interior
- Break dust, LOTS OF CABIN NOISE, VERY LOUD ENGINE, HIGH MAINTENANCE AND PARTS COSTS, tiny car
I paid about 35,000 after taxes and I own many of the options that were available. For some reason the car makes alot of noise. Let me elaborate. The engine makes alot of noise at idle and during drive, breaks are squeeky (and produce alot of brake dust making it look dirty, really dirty), due to tight suspension (which isn't an excuse, but another flaw) loose parts of the car (front dash, window of speedometer, and air conditioning parts) rattle to no end. Its really obnoxious. If you can pay for these flaws without being upset than this car is overall a decent buy. Even with the TSIB's I find that the car still performs with the same problems.
On a positive note, the car gets decent mileage and has a responsive drive. Cornering and turning are good, but has a loose steering wheel. The front seats are very comfortable, and have been given many complements on that and the heating and air conditioning system. The LCD screen is very intuitive and works well. GPS system has some bugs but they can be fixed with the proper TSIB's, overall GPS system is good.
Well to do for a girl, I'm a dude, therefore I can say I'm kinda dissapointed. With that being said, I am banking that Toyota comes through on reliability and gets me up to the 200,000 mile mark and beyond.
Service at Lexus in Southern Cali. is decent, but costs are through the roof. Plan on doing shopping, alot of shopping to find better deals on equipment, (Tires and so on) and bring your own Synthetic oils and filters!!!!!! CABIN FILTER (A/C FILTER) cost me around 60 dollars from Lexus.
