Honestly, it's not really a spilled liquid issue. My car has the executive seating packing, so there are all kinds of buttons on the center console between the two back seats. That was really more my concern. That said, I never even really drive it, so it's not like I'm out cruising in my LS while I leave the family behind. Not to mention, my five year old boy shares his Daddy's car obsession. His taste is very different from mine. He's nowhere near as impressed with my Lexus as I am. In fact, he thinks Cadillacs are the greatest vehicle ever created, while I think ANYTHING GM is absolute GARBAGE. Because both he and my wife love Cadillac, I bought the wife an SRX, so the kid is rocking out with his DVD player in the SRX, and all is well.
I actually do agree with the sentiment of everyone that cars are meant to be driven. I guess I have just become a bit too impressed by a car, which has never happened to me. Hell, I bought the LX470 brand new in 2004 and spent a small fortune for the thing, but I never felt as though it was too nice to drive (and it costs me more than the LS). I think it may be time to sell her off and let someone else enjoy actually driving it!
