A really wonderful car. This automobile is smooth, quiet, understated, but very luxurious. The only real downside is the name of the car for those concerned with that. The ride is not as isolated as an S class Mercedes but is really nice none the less. It handles very well with flat cornering. The interior is very nice but not flashy. The only problem with the car from my view is it is has some user interface issues for ancillary controls. For instance, it requires you to push the button on every start up to accept the warnings and then push a second time to "continue". A bit irritating. The window controls for the front window are too far forward and too close to the fuel filler release for comfort.
Don't know if I would buy new at 80 - 100K but I bought used at ~$45K and THAT is an absolute steal for a vehicle of this quality and size.
