You can have your Lexus, I'll stick to my 20K cheaper Avalon.
Nothing wrong with Toyota/Lexus; they passed GM as the world's #1 motor company years ago and have never looked back!
IMHO, the Lexus 460 motor (and its 400 and 430 predecessors) are the finest mass-production motors ever produced by the hand of man.
Then driving my T-Bird and Cadillac Eldorado, I remember laughing at the "rice burners" back in the '70's. After a decade of volvos I "went rice" in 1994 and have never been happier with my vehicles and their servicing.
