My Lexus is great with only very minor deficits.

My Lexus has a very sleek, white exterior and a sophisticated brown leather interior, which is my favorite part. My friends often compliment me on those aspects the most. The Bluetooth connection in the car is great. It connects immediately as I turn the car on. However, one problem I have with this is that when I plug in my phone to charge it, the output in which my music comes out will change to USB on my phone, but the settings will stay on Bluetooth for my car so I would have to manually switch it. I wish it would just stay as Bluetooth even though I plugged in a USB cord. I have never had a problem with the performance. My car drives beautifully, but even though it is on eco mode, the gas seems to drop drastically.

Overall, a very solid family car.

I haven't had many issues with the vehicle. The only complaint I have had involves the comfort of my neck as I am driving. It is not the wildest car to drive in terms of speed, but I have never had issues with its performance or reliability. The are not features that truly stand out amongst newer models of cars, but seat heaters help me stay comfortable during winter, and it'd be beneficial if it could be possible to expand it to back seats. The navigation also needs to be updated in certain neighborhoods and highway intersections. But this can be a solid family car if you can afford to lease or own it.

Great but one downside. The back opening is too small.

I love the size of my f sport Lexus nx. Although the downside is the trunk opening is small and it is difficult to get larger items in the back. It is a small size SUV and the seats fold down and that is convenient. But the small opening does limit what you can put into the vehicle. It is a comfortable car and handles well. The sports package is very attractive. Gas mileage is ok not the greatest. The size is what appeals to me the most. Driving higher and in a slightly bigger vehicle is nice.
