Review of RX 350 AWD
By Paul Williamson on


2009 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased the Lexus a two months ago and to date we have enjoyed the vehicle. Have owned MBs and Volvos for years and decided to try a Lexus. Doesn't handle as well as European vehicles. It appears to be solid and I suspect will be more reliable than the European SUVs in the long run. With only 4,000 miles on the vehicle we are averaging around 19 MPG city and 24 MPG hwy which, I think, is excellent for such a heavy vehicle. Exhibits excessive body roll in curves and to much wind noise with sun roof in tilt position. Navigation system is not as intuitive as my Garmin. Excellent sound system. Seats are form fitting but not up to par with Volvo seats. Excellent cruising vehicle.

Best Features

Bluetooth, sound system, power liftgate, adaptive HID lights, comfortable rear seats and fit and finish.

Worst Features

More horsepower, iPod connection, ability to change navigation input while moving, ability to reset trip computer to calculate mileage vs automatic reset upon fill-up, storage bin for small items like coins, interior ambient lighting for night driving and turn signal indicators on mirrors.
