Inferior Tires
By Joe on

Vehicle

2008 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Vehicle drives and handles great overall. Car had tendency to pull to right while driving. Dealer re-balanced tires and realigned front end on several occasions,but vehicle still had slight pull to right. Around 15,000 miles, car started making a roaring sound while driving (sound like excessive road noise). When I took the car in for the 15,000 mile checkup, dealer informed me that tires needed changing. Dealer said Lexus cars come equipped with low quality tires (Goodyear). Replaced the Goodyear tires with Michelin tires which were recommended by the dealer. By the way, I had to pay for two of the new Michelin tires. Never had a tire wear out in 15,000 miles (40 year driver).

Favorite Features

Back up camera, power door, ease of handling, performance

Suggested Improvements

Better tires from dealer and/or factory
