re: My Pre-Owned Lexus NX300h | Ownership Review | EDIT: 2,00,000 km update

Quick note: After posting the above update on my car ownership thread, I received a couple of PMs asking around details of Visa requirements for Morocco, Car import permit etc. I am working on a detailed write up which I will now speed up. I will update this thread with the link once the article is up. Thanks for waiting.

Key updates
- The damaged back bumper from Morocco trip (Solo road-trip from EU to Africa (Netherlands - Morocco) in a Lexus NX300h) has been fixed under Insurance.

Lexus showroom (Louwman Exclusive Cars) is what I opted for as they had a direct tie-up with my Insurance [ABN Amro] which meant all cash dealings would be done directly.
Louwman also arranged a replacement car [almost new Lexus UX 250h] that my Insurance offers.

Few pics of UX250h

While its got all the tech to match what is latest in the industry along with typical Lexus build quality etc, It felt the interior to be way too cramped - I mean I know its a smaller car, but its too tight even for that sized cars around. My kid could not stretch her legs properly while being on her car seat. The excitement of a new car went away just in a day and I was just looking for the NX to get back. It took 4 days to have the damage fixed.

After getting back from Morocco trip, there hasn't been anything major in terms of events / trips. Home - School - Work - Home is what is going on.

Some updates on numbers:
- Daily average: 87.2 KMs
- Monthly average: 2302 KMs
- KMPL overall: 14.38
- Next service: after another 6k KMs.

What's coming up?

Nothing much in plan really. I may do some short trips during Christmas week and probably will get in for service early Feb or so. I will keep this thread updated.

Now have done about 23k KMs, here are updates to things I like [Addition to the earlier list]
- Settings such heated seats stay turned on until they are switched off. As the temp is below 10 these days, It's nice to have heated seats on all the time. All the other settings also follow the same idea.
- Doors extending all the way down to the bottom of the body ensures that clothes remain clean, especially given it rains a lot these days.
- No issues so far. Hope that the reliability factor continues.

Things I don't like [Addition to the earlier list]
- As it's been raining a lot, I noticed that the wheel arcs are collecting a lot more dirt than I'd like. It's not that easy to clean properly.
- I also see that the window glasses and mirrors are water drop magnets. It needs some solution.

As usual, signing off with another pic.
