      lexus has left entry luxury market a while ago. is it worth it, no, is it luxury, hardly, but women with insane plastic surgery will buy these like hot cakes. see these cars everywhere on the east coast. and 65k is about right for a luxury car, if you want a cheap one get a cadillac they start at 50kish and are rubbish
