Been owned 01 mdx, 05 rx, 07 ml350,08 x5, and 09 gl450. Right now I'm leasing 08 911 turbo and have 07 Prius. I've been owned so many cars from all models of Honda to Ferrari f430. What happen to Lexus! They are increasing price with low-end quality material! Feel and look cheap plastic interior, uncomfortable seat (I'm 5'10" n 185 lb). 2005 rx was much better! Thank god we're leasing this car.
Do not believe the few bad reviews here. I STRONGLY believe, in my opinion only, that these are spies from the other car companies, the closest competitors writing some of this nonsense. Just a warning. Use your common sense. I have owned the car for almost a year now. Fact: it is the smoothest and quietest SUV you can buy. People are posting that it's a little trucky but there is a little truth to that, but please note this is the best of all competitors out there. Fact: center console does fail miserably in design. But, I can live with it. I just drove to the Sequioas and a new X5 overheated, I just zoomed by laughing. Fact: Lexus is the most reliable car available
Lexus assist. Seats are very comfortable. Great for long trips. Styling is nice. Smooth. Quiet. Reliable.
Navigation doesn't take 20% of addresses I input, so I call Lexus Assist. Center console is a complete failure with regards to storage of cell phone, car chargers, etc. Make it a bit smoother. Need 3rd row option. Better color choices.
I have owned a 2010 RX 350 for six months now and have developed a fairly good feel for its pros and cons. This is my third Lexus since 1990, having owned a LS 400 and currently owning an LS 460. The RX 350 is my first SUV. Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of this style vehicle, preferring a station wagon instead. But I needed something that could tow. I find the peripheral vision in the RX is poor. Maybe its the tinted windows. Or maybe its the roof lines. But switching lanes, particularly to the right, is never fun in this vehicle. Also, the drivers side view mirror is blurry and shows double images at the edges. Lexus says its a design problem and doesnt plan to change the
Positives include better than advertised gas mileage (25.3 hwy 17.6 avg ) and an excellent designed multifunction multi-controller. The ride in the vehicle, noise level and comfort level are all good. Power is more than adequate and braking is excellent. The vehicle handles well
Negatives are visibility, drivers side mirror, lack of heated steering, interruptions in the satellite radio transmissions
This vehicle is designed for politically correct soccer moms. They have eliminated the ash-tray, lighter and change holder. For just the front seat (1 driver, 1 passenger), they now have 3 cup holders and spaces for an almost infinite number of water bottles. There is no outlet for a cellphone charger or radar-detector. The center armrest is way too far back to rest anything but your right elbow on. Whoever designed this clunker must be related to the guy who changed the formula in coca-cola.
It hasn't exploded, yet.
Have my garage burn down so I could collect on the insurance.
