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


Bought an IS in March, found it too small. Received excellent trade value on it and bought this RX. Interior is much more luxurious than the IS and so is the ride. The engine is not as silky, though; feels and sounds more truck-like. Everyone loves all of the cool and innovative features. Fuel consumption is amazingly low. I averaged 24 MPG on my first tank. I like how you can fold down just the center portion of the rear seats. I am told that this is the best-selling Lexus vehicle. I can see why.

Best Features

Self-leveling HID headlamps. Electric hatch closer. Rain-sensing wipers. Driver's cup holder next to the AC vent. Multiple adjustments of the rear seat. Extra storage under the cargo floor. Illuminated door sills. Sliding center console. Blackened wood trim. Information center.

Worst Features

Holder for a handheld device. Drawer for spare change. Cupholder next to the passenger's air vent. Emergency brake should be hand-operated. Eject button for the CD player should not be so close to the "next track" button. Turn signals in the rear-view mirrors. Make it easier to wash the roof.
