The FCV (and I've driven it) is far from something that has "all the problems solved." Stop kidding yourself.

Yeah the 90's called, and they still happen to have all of Toyota's innovation ideas. The market is a much more dynamic place today and Toyota/Lexus simply hasn't shown the ability to respond quickly...

And starting soon, ES will move to Georgetown, Kentucky along side the Camry and Avalon.
