We traded an ES-350 for the RX. Mostly positive results. Smoother, quieter ride with limited wind and road noise. Hitting some potholes will generate a quick rattle or two, but that's it. Comfortable seats, Recessed Nav screen at eye level and mouse controller a good plus, helps for safe driving. Interior storage much improved, including a cubby area under the center console. Mixed driving gets just shy of 22 MPG using 89 Octane. Plugins a bit awkward in lower console, but that location helps keep the cords hidden and out of sight when not in use. Neither our ES or Limited Avalon before that had side moldings, so no biggie for us. We are enjoying the car.
Nav system ease of use. Storage areas. Comfortable Seats. Elevated seating for good vision. Quiet and smooth compared to others.
Backlight all knobs/buttons. Make blind spot mirrors, sensors standard features. Offer an upgrade sound deadening package to really make the RX Super quiet. Expand the Nav system to a Nav/Computer system
