Lovely car to drive, boot is small
Lovely car to drive, size of boot and back seats are small
good car but not as good as is200 .squeaks and rattles from the suspension, head gasket had to be replaced,and now a oil leak ,but all that aside i like it m.p.g about 38 not too bad for a 2.2
3.0 litre petrol, full lether pack as standard. Fine car, although looks a little quirky from the outside, mind you, its easy to forget that when you are wrapped up in its luxary. Considered to be an E Class equivalent, in my opinion, it is a nicer drive.
This car is magnificent to drive and is most suited to long journeys. In rush hour traffic it is very heavy on petrol. It is a very big car for parking purposes. Overall though, the car has far more plusses than minuses. Certainly recommended.
The Passenger Cabin is quite 'tight' Tall pasengers(anyone over 5ft 9ins) will feel abit cramped and claustraphobic as the Sunroof knocks a good 3 inches off the interior headroom. Also only 2 passengers can travel in comfort in the rear as the 'bump' in the middle is most uncomfortable to sit on even for a minute let alone on a car journey (if you have kids forget it), and the already tight headroom inthe rear is even less. The LowProfile wheels are not practical for Irish Rural Roads. (Fine on Motorways and roads with smooth tarmac). A lot of thumping and wheel shudder can be felt, as the suspension cant cope. The GEARBOX ratios are all wrongly spaced. And you will noticed this after driving, say, a AUDI or BMW. And may explain the poor fuel economy. This is disappointing as you would expect a high degree of refinement in a Executive brand such as LEXUS, to go with its image of Quality, Engineering, and Style. In fact if you were thinking of buying a 220d DONT! BUY THE NEW AVENSIS. Practically the same car (smaller Lexus)and for less money !!
129000 miles and still drives like new bulletproof
