2010 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I'm a first-time Lexus owner. I traded my Honda Ridgeline pickup for a 2010 Lexus RX350 crossover as I was looking for something smaller that had plenty of cargo space plus the AWD capability for Colorado snowstorms. I must say I am quite impressed. I was seriously torn between the RX350 and the Volvo XC60, but the Lexus won out when I test drove both (3 times) and found the Lexus had more hip/shoulder room for my 6'2" frame, yet was very easy to load and enter/exit for my 5'0" wife. I believe the RX350 is built on a Toyota Camry frame, which gives it a great smooth ride that doesn't have that stiff "truck" ride that some SUV's have. So far, MPG are 23-24 after one tank of 87 octane.


Best Features

Smooth car-like ride; Responsive off the line; The AWD has already proven itself in Colorado snow; Lots of shoulder/hip room for bigger drivers; MPG match EPA standard; Controls are easy to use while driving; Plenty of cargo room; Integrated bluetooth easy to use; High quality of build is obvious


Worst Features

Homelink and sunroof buttons should be backlit; Hybrid didn't seem to provide that quick pickup off the line like the gas-only model did. A few extra MPG's on the hybrid may not justify the extra $$. At this point, not many negatives about this car. Consider this car when shopping for a crossover.

Review

First I would like to comment on the issues that people are having with the nav system: if you're driving and need to find a restaurant you can call Lexus destination assist by just telling the car call destination assist. You will then talk to a Lexus representative that will find you what you are looking for and the send the directions to your nav system, if that's not luxurious and intuitive i don't know what is. The car is pretty quick, quicker that a benz ml350 and rides very soft. The quality of the materials inside is great. The only complaint is that the seats may be a little firm , but you get used to it quickly. The car is very quiet, but if anything just turn on the audio system!


Best Features

Everything, especially destination assist, and the voice control works much better than rivals. Also the quality for the bluetooth phone system is great for people to hear you, not like other cars I've seen the system used in that produce an echo sound.


Worst Features

Cushion up the seats more, fix up the suspension to soak up bumps a little better, yet the overall ride feels like you're gliding on butter.

Review

4th Lexus bought largely on the capacity. has about 25% more space than competitors. interior quality has slipped with each purchase. 1999 gs was first and best. main complaint is the use of vinyl on seats and arm rests. it can't cost that much more to put leather on instead of vinyl. quality of leather has been progressively less with each Lexus i bought. "99gs, 2003 rx, 2008 gs and now 2010rx. passenger seat being replace due to wrinkles and bumpiness. poor quality control. the quality of the carpet is not as good as in prior yrs. being nit picking but lexus is not the luxury car it was in "99. i will probably buy a different brand. was impressed with Hyundai Veracruz.


Best Features

fit and finish is great. no rattles. ride is nice.


Worst Features

no sunglass compartment. the sos button replaces area where sunglass holder was. button could be relocated. spare doesn't have a wheel to match the four on the car. blind spot warning sensor. leather instead of vinyl.

Review

Shopped the major brands, but the RX350 came up on top on everything. Love the center console control system for NAV, audio, etc. My right arm sits comfortably without the need for armrest. Very quiet and comfortable ride to the point where I don't feel I'm going as fast as I am. Love the fact that power is buried in the center console: I just want to set up everything, hide it in the box and then hit the road. Adaptive headlights are very cool, especially noticeable on my first ride on a narrow, winding country road at night.


Best Features

Great leather seats, excellent voice recognition system, adaptive headlights, quiet cabin/engine noise, placement of display at steering wheel/center console/NAV screen. Nice spot under the center console for the 10 lb owners manuals without having to put it in the roomy glove compartment.


Worst Features

Fix the iPod on-screen Interface! It auto-selects whatever is at the top of the list when you scroll, doesn't recognize chapters within audio books, speed of scrolling through items could be better. (understand they've gotten lots of complaints and are working on a software upgrade for this)

Review

The wind noise is evident even at relatively low speeds. The ipod is very hard to plug in and the gas mileage is about 14 mpg in the city.


Best Features

bluetooth


Worst Features

wind noise, fuel economy, and there should be some protection from other cars opening their doors. The side protection strip has disappeared from the 2010 model.
