After years and years of research for the perfect "next" family car, my husband and I settled on a used (2008) RX 350, and couldn't be happier. We had bought a Chrysler Pacifica when they first came out in 2004 and had terrible luck with reliability, but couldn't justify trading it in until we got our money out of the thing. So basically we have been looking for the next car for 7 years. Having 2 younger children we were set on another three row vehicle, but were not happy with the costs of a new Pilot, Acadia, Highlander, etc. We then looked at the two row luxury market and almost got a Volvo xc70. I'm so glad we test drove the certified used RX 350 first. Love it!!! and the price.
All seats are incredibly comfortable and easy to clean (have kids), headlights, back center console is strong and good for kids to keep toys in, back is more spacious than it looks, better mileage than expected...and of course it looks fabulous!
More nooks for cell phone, etc in front area, space for water bottle in back doors, bigger sunglass holder....really nothing major.
