This car is a smooth drive and very reliable. I am a very short person and the adjustable seats are very comfortable and allows me to feel in complete control of the car while driving. I bought this car pre-owned and at 100,000 miles the engine still runs and looks as if brand new. The design is sleek and smooth and I feel very safe behind the wheel of this RX 350.
this car has been flawless in all categories. without hesitation, I know this car has been flawless, except for the cup holder near the drivers door. it needs repair. but truly 30 ounce smoothies do not fit a cup holder in anything that's called a car.
This is the third car that I owned that I have put on over 250 k miles. This is by far the most reliable, it has never broke down. Only repairs are normal wear and tear such as tires, brakes, rear bearings and plugs/ignition coils.
I recently picked up a 2007 RX350 I purchased from Carmax. The SUV has 68k mikes and looked to be in good shape.
Since you only have 30 days with Carmax to request repairs (I opted out of their exctended warranty), I took it to my local auto mechanic for a "once over".
The mechanic found that the rack and pinion as well as the rear struts were leaking. I drove about an hour an a half back to Carmax in PA for what I thought would be a battle over the repairs. Much to my surprise, the confirmed the leaks and said they would order the parts and replace them. No problem.
Hopefully that all works out.
Overall, the car is great.
I traded in a 2011 Honda Accord EX-L.
I had five or more in my lifetime and always swore by them.
I looked at the Acura RDX and MDX as well as the KIA Sorrento (which I liked very much)
The RX has a much nicer, carlike ride, which is what I was looking for.
It has the tow hitch as well to mount my bike rack as well.
The Lexus is just very upscale looking inside and out and looks to have a good reliability track record.
So far so good.
