I have the 2012 base model with towing package. this is my 5th RX. It's built like a vault, solid, turns on a dime, feels much bigger and a serious upgrade from previous models and they were pretty good. that said, you have to remember that this car has the towing package. it has much more grunt or power from a dead stop and almost sounds like a hot rod. perhaps the gearing is lower? there is more weight on the front end because of the transmission cooler and larger raditator. our road surfaces are made of concrete so the ride can be jaring at times especially during cold weather. it rides more like a pregent mustang than a lexus. thats not a bad thing, just understand before you buy. still the most for your money and you can't beat that residual at the end of your lease.Report it
