This is my 2ed Lexus RX. I have had this vehicle for more than 5 years and I give it an over all rating of 8 on a 1-10 scale. Just a few days ago, the cruise control just quit and I am told that the stick on the steering column is broke; $400 to replace. I am on my third set of tires and I do not speed or burn rubber. Other than that the car has been very reliable and still looks almost brand new ( It is always garaged, however).
The right size for a SUV, excellent power, still looking like brand new after 5 years to the amazement of many of my friends, no engine noise at stops which is my wife's favorite feature and until few days ago not a single mechanical problem.
Better leather surfaces, get rid of the brushed aluminum and bring in the wood, add cooling option to the seats and improve the mileage.
