RX350 Needs Work
By uforgetaboutit on
2008 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is our 3rd RX out of 4. Good ride and features,interior. Navi console impressive but difficult. If you want navigation get a Nuvi or Tom-Tom and save yourself $2k. Backup camera & Bluetooth good features but no IPod or MP3 input (BTW what's with the tape player). Lock-out during driving sucks... give us a break big brother! Maps and POI are out of date... maybe 2005 maps best guess. Update are extra service charge. Ride is rough. Tires loud, interior noise very high (road, engine). Overall comfort for 4 OK but don't drive too far without a break. We get 21-23 mpg not bad. Lawnmower engine but it's perky. Price value more like $30K instead of $40K. Might be our last RX after lease
Backup camera, wipers, bluetooth,overall design ok. Auto rear hatch, nice storage underneath the cargo area for road stuff. Cargo cover a bit much, make it an option. Headlight great love it when you go around corners. Driving is comfortable, no feel however. Fun vehicle and overall function OK.
Pricing does not match value added any longer. Fix the sound, mono phone, lousy playback for CDs, IPod input. Unlock the Nav and get professional help on the maps, update and ease of use. TomTom outperforms for 1/3 the cost. Tires need to be upgraded.
