I think this is a nice idea - it frees up space on the dash and probably is less expensive to implement.

Thanks, i did not know that it locks with the car. That makes sense. I kind of worried that anyone can press it open if it does not lock. Hmmm. I should remove it from my dislikes.

It will just suck if/when the locking feature fails, fortunately it wont be anything even close of having a sense of urgency as with many other things that can go wrong.

I was a little surprised that the NX didn't come with a key card. I figured it was because you could unlock via the mobile app. Turns out that there is a key inside the fob. Just pull on the key chain loop at the top and a key will pop up. Pull the driver door handle all the way to expose the key hole.

The F Sport has an engine noise amplifier the pumps the sound over a speaker when the car is in sport mode. There is a wheel low on the dash (look just above your right knee) to turn the volume up or off. I have to admit I thought this was a "hoakie" feature when I first read about it, but after I bought the car I realized how much it contributes to the driving experience. It gets the blood pumping.

The convenience of a card key or key card in the wallet frees me from bringing a bulky fob. I miss that.
Mine is not an F Sport model so it does not have the feature you are referring to. It would have been nice if it did.

Lexus should make that a standard feature across its line. It's bound to be a standard feature across the market and is such a simple thing.

I appreciate the third cup holder just under the driver's left vent in the dash of my RX330. When my wife rides with me, she'll bring a water bottle. If we stop for coffee, I'll put my cup in the third holder. It's quite a nice design, compact and hidden when folded.

I never saw the card key since I purchased mine used, but also think it is a good idea - I have too much in my pockets.

I just purchased a 2016 F Sport 2 (Blk/Red) and it had about 200KM on the vehicle. My previous vehicle was a BMW but liked the price point of the NX. I still believe the Germans make some of the best cars in terms of attention to detail, quality of components used and engineering.

So my dislike list is as follows:

1) Stereo is kind of weak for 10 speakers (comparing this to my BMWs Harmon Kardon). I find the base quite wimpy with a few vibrations and the sound at higher volumes not as crisp as I believe it should be.

2) The hands free phone system will not let me scroll my contacts when I'm driving. Yes of course safety, but it should be my option if I want to disable this stupid feature. Does anyone know if any hacks/programming tools are available to modify such settings?

3) The navigation also has disabled some features while driving.... Same as above hands free phone, my option.

4) The heated steering wheel is only half heated? Was the Japanese engineer asleep when he/she thought about this one? Or will then again get into the safety conservation about your hands being in the proper location on the steering wheel.

5) The mouse functionality is a bit clumsy and could be improved.

6) When you stop the car the drivers side seat always goes back. Can this feature be disabled? I guess it helps if you have a large gut, but it's annoying at times...

Again these are the little details that could make this a better car than it already is. And I do like the car!

That's it for now.... I will update with additional information as I put more time on the vehicle.

You can disable this through the Menu options setup in the center console display on a US model NX.

I'm not sure if you can voice command scroll the contacts list but if you know their name you can use this voice command to call them.

“Call <contacts>
<phone types>”

Place a call to the said phone type of the contact from
the phone book
