GREAT car... poor utilitarian features
By Wayne on


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


This car replaced a RX-300 which was the best car I ever had. The RX-350 is fun to drive, comfortable, and handles well. Again Lexus has hit a good spot in the smaller SUV market. The utilitarian features on a scale of 0 to 10 are about a 0, since something lower is not available. The problem is that many features qualify to check off a box, but are not really useful. Note that this car comes only in a non-smoking, "funny spare" configuration. While I am not a smoker, the lack of a convenient power outlet and ashtray for change is annoying. A "funny spare" on a $40+ car is just plain cheap. I love the car, but a prospective buyer should carefully examine the interior.

Best Features

Nice power, fuel economy OK. Smooth ride and good handling. Backup camera on rear mirror is nice. Comfy seats, nice power rear door. If you can manage to access the USB port, a thumb drive makes a nice way to store mp3 files.

Worst Features

The design of the center console is indeed miserable. It is hard to access, and the power outlets are below the console liner. The 4 door pockets are unusable. The pockets on the back of the seats are similar to an airliner fold down table, but are unusable. "Funny spare" is not acceptable.
