The RX350 is an Excellent Car/Truck. For the most part ride is compliant.. Over some bumps, it can be non compliant. Rides like a truck.. When the road is smooth, the ride is great !! Acceleration is brisk to be sure.. Stopping is good.. Visibility is great ! Plenty of room.. Reliable , more reliable than any Mercedes or BMW with out question. Former Mercedes owner here.. Many of them actually.. The appointments are not as good as Mercedes, and there is not as much Substance as Mercedes.. But... All that is outweighed by Lexus reliability.. This is our 2nd Lexus, and nothing ever goes wrong with any of our Lexus cars.. Except.. Every 4-5 years, you have to replace the battery..
Visibility, Heated Seats, Roomy. Power hatch.
A more progressive ride for soaking up the bumps...
Like all cars there is a good thinks and not good ones. in this model i can say
Lexus could do more inside of the car, design is so cheap with dashboard , at least
Lexus should remove that ugly grey color of metal look.
under arm glove department is so uncofy to reach since some [violative content deleted] designer decided
only half way, u have to open it with right hand and get
what u want with left.
plus space under ur right foot is for what? cant freaking reach it anyway.
Now the highlights of the car.
Destination Assist is excellent Idea well only for 3 months. Rear seats going down also great. Ipod * USB* AUX* connection is great to, well that think is standard in most of the cars. rear seats can be put in comfy position good to. rest of
thinks are standard no big changes in the car. based on the Price of $45.000
change inside interior design
more upscale and technology futures, re-thing glove-compartment
size in the car, re-design under arm opener more to side-by-side little doors just like in Mercedes.
and the most an professional design was in when you approaching ur car and want to open a back door, u cant because u have to open front door and only after that you can opee back door.
Where do you put your stuff in this car?
No place for pens, note pads, etc. for the driver.
The storage in the center console is very difficult to access.
And the cell phone charger set-up!!! That has GOT to be improved.
First of all, why hasn't Edmunds talked about the archaic nav/radio system in any of their reviews????
I come from the world of Ford/Sirius/SYNC and I was shocked when I realized how old-fashioned the Lexus system is.
Yes, I know, I should have kept it for a weekend to discover what a terrible system it is - but I listened to friends who were already Lexus owners, and I read Edmunds reviews and NO ONE told me!!!
Have these people never driver another brand of car?
You have to jump to two screens to see the title of a song, and then jump BACK to get to the next channel.
No color, no logos, just plain old letters that are truncated - you don't even see the whole song title.
Very comfortable seats
Upgrade the nav/radio system.
Fix the terrible power plug situation - cords hanging out of the center console is tacky.
Give the driver some storage - no place for pens, no pads.
You have to reach behind you to get to the center console cubby, and you have to be a contortionist to access the buttons for heated seats.
