TTAC Video Review: 2010 Lexus RX450h

Roman Mica
by Roman Mica

I am, of course, urging Roman Mica of tflcar.com to take a little more time for his reviews, deploy a few metaphors and tell us how he really feels. Remember: this internet deal is a two-way thing. If you’ve got some pointers for our budding videographer/reviewer, share them here. As with written work, TTAC welcomes new video contributors without regard to their editorial slant. All I ask is that the overall production quality meets the standard set by Mr. Mica and that you do NOT sound like a fanboy or a total asshole (that’s my job). Send an embed code (from YouTube) to farago@ttac.com.

    I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how 4,652 pounds and a SUV-high center of gravity can make for a pleasant driving experience, unless pleasant means driving straight and only straight. Despite what many car reviewers like to suggest, automobile do not defy physics.

    I think you did a good job. You spoke quickly but I didn't get the sense that you were rushed. You were a little vague about how the car drives, but for a luxury SUV, that's probably not such an important factor (disproportionately so in this forum perhaps). I might have liked to have heard about: 1. The Aux back: Why is it there? So you can leave an Ipod there all the time w/o cabin clutter? 2. The amount of room. It's an SUV so I assume people buy them for either room for people or stuff. Comments about that? Lastly, I thought the window bit was a bit long, sure, but it was a good choice. It was a nice specific detail and it gave a sense of the attention to detail. So again, good job.

    Oh, if you want to see some good video car reviews, I actually like CNETs a lot. True they are 5min (vs. 3min) so just ignore the extra 2min they spend on the in car tech (then again, it is CNET). Examples: http://reviews.cnet.com/convertible/2009-bmw-z4-sdrive35i/4505-10870_7-33741548.html?tag=mncol;lst http://reviews.cnet.com/coupe-hatchback/2009-nissan-gt-r/4505-10867_7-33108986.html?tag=contentMain;contentBody Note, I don't work for Cnet, I just offer these as other examples of video reviews that appeal to dorks and mainstream consumers alike. My girlfriend can even sit through these when she sees them on my TiVo.
