This car does everything well. Drives, shifts, stops, quiet, blue tooth, traffic navigation, clean lines and good set up. If you drive a car often and under all conditions (including traffic), this is the car for you. If you wear it like a Rolex, get a Lexus or BMW and park it in your driveway to impress someone.
Lexus ? You deal with those snobs doing you a favor showing you their car. I wanted an IS 350 with the Standard All Season tires and to their surprise, I wanted to select the color..... test drive ? No, they don't have any. Order one ? No, you must take what they get. Infiniti ? You like that engine noise ? Buy a Maxima SE or Altima SE-R.
Audi A6 ? Can't be driven in traffic with that constantly shifting 6 Speed Tiptronic. In traffic, you need to shift manually or use S setting. Otherwise this car overall was #2 behind the RL .
Cadillac STS or CTS ? Another group of obnoxious sales people. If they can't be nice when you're buying a car, what can you expect later.
BMW ? $50 K and leather seats are optional ? What else are they cutting back on that I can't see ? Good driveway ornament for $10K extra. The Audi drives the same and is German, if that's your thing.
