2022 Lexus NX 350h Luxury - Door handles that don't move? How do they do that?
It may seem strange to start off a car review by talking about door handles but these handles, all of them, just seemed weird to me. Not that they didn't work but that they didn't operate like most door handles have done for ages.
Above is the inside door handle. It's small but it felt rugged enough. Now I had the NX 350h for a week and it wasn't until the last day that I figured out what I think is the proper way to use the handle. I had been pulling on it, and that was annoying because you had to pull it twice - once unlocked it and the second time opened the door. Then on the last day I happened to push in the handle where those little six dots are and PRESTO! the door opened.
The rear seat is capable of holding three people. I remember when no one wanted the center position because the driveshaft hump limited your foot room. In todays vehicles the center arm rest is the problem. The center position just isn't as comfy as the two outer positions, and this isn't just a Lexus problem.
