For us, styling IS an issue. We are among those who wonder why Lexus appears to be trying to out-Cadillac Cadillac styling. As to brand/reliability, Consumer Reports doesn't show a problem with...

Exactly. In our case it will come down to a lot of different factors, and I'm very happy to have a series of great choices. Since we have the slightly larger RX400h to replace, and often take day...

Each to his own, I guess. We'll be replacing our RX400h with a full-luxury suv, not a sports car. (I've got an XLR for that). Anyway, to us the MKC looks elegant while the NX looks almost...

Not always the case. I'm an hour+ away from the nearest Lexus dealer (the one I don't ever plan to go to again) and almost 90 minutes to the next nearest. Lincoln dealer's much closer.

Yes, but a good aftermarket nav does not have some auto manufacturers lawyering-up so that not even a front seat passenger can set or alter a destination while the car's moving. We move our Garmin...

Extended warranty on our 2008 RX400h runs out early next year, so the NX is definitely a candidate unless we can't get ventilated seats. In that case, the Lincoln MKC looks very interesting. The...

I'd better try my luck at the casinos, then. When we bought our 2007 RX400h, we paid $2000 to extend the cpo warranty from 3 years to 6. Just over 3 years later, we broke even with a $2200 repair...
