Ok, the obligatory warning - I may be talking through my hat here.
A good friend of mine has one. It was good, until weird voodoo started happening with it. Essentially - she had to keep it revved up so it would not die at the stop lights. Or suddenly all the lights would come on, on the dashboard - pretty christmas tree, and the engine would go into limp home mode. The electric windows packed it in first (proved to be a short in the bundle of wires going inside the door), then all of the above happened. ..
Quite a few very steep thousands dollars later (I think that the dealer ended up changing anything that a dealer could charge) the car seems to be running again. God (or Satan) knows until when though.
A few good searches on the net later and uh... well - let's just say that I don't think it's just one lemon - it's an entire lemon-tree out there.
Again - nothing to do with the brand - as a matter of fact - I quite liked them. Note the past tense.
Guys around here might steer you in one direction or the other. Depends of what you're looking at: comfort? Price? Reliability? something different? a challenge?
For myself - I've got a LC 78 series - 2009 model. Does all I need and then some. Tows 3.5t, and goes like a bat out of hell. Others, may, but I cannot fault it.
