I have had my Lexus for 15 months so feel I can speak with some experience. I don't understand people who buy this car and then complain it's noisy and a bit of a sluggard. The Lexus is well reviewed in these areas so if you do your research you would know this. It's a bit like buying an elephant and then complaining that it's big and grey! The car is beautifully built and a joy to sit in. 50 mpg is the norm with no effort whatsoever. The local dealers in Manchester are excellent and so far, no problems whatsoever. I have thoroughly enjoyed owing this car and traded a MX-5 for it, bet there aren't many owners who can say that! It gets lots of admirers and mine is Meso red which looks stunning when clean. To be fair, most of the comments are from people who smell of biscuits and Werthers but praise is praise. On the downside, for the price, to have no reversing sensors is a disgrace, shame on you Lexus! The tyres are rotten and when you put your foot down with just a hint of a damp road then they spin. I am looking forward to shedding them. I enquired about fitting a DAB radio and was quoted £700!! What?? Come on Lexus!!!! This is a really excellent car, it isn't a hot hatch, more of a tepid saloon but it has no pretensions of false grandeur. Everyone knows you can't go wrong with a Lexus, they are engineered like thoroughbreds, even if the CT clops along rather than at a canter.
