This SUV is built like a tank.
Although the ride is not quite as
smooth on rough pavement or
cobblestones as my old RX300, it
handles very well, and is very
comfortable, even on long trips. The
quality is perfect - no rattles,
squeaks, etc. I was surprised by the
lack of a change cup and center
console storage (which are present in
the RX300). Gas mileage is 13-14 mpg,
but what do you expect for a 6150 lb.
SUV? The rear "barn door" is unusual,
but does not bother me.
The back-up camera and tilting side
mirrors in reverse are invaluable.
Center console should have more
storage space, like RX300. Should
have a change cup. 3rd row seats
should store into floor. Should be
storage space under floor in rear.
The nav system menu in my old RX300
was easier to operate. There are no
coat hooks with rear a/c option.
