Great vehicle with only a few complaints
By j0hnnyb1 on


2013 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


The 2013 has made subtle changes from the '12 model but the changes are noticeable.
The front of the car looks great now and unfortunately those with the 2012 model look outdated and antiquated next to it.
The interior is clean, modern, and sleek without goddy ornamentation and flare.
It's a luxurious car without looking ostentatious.
The ride is smooth and you can't hear the wind outside going 70mph down the highway.
The technology is a win, I've driven Mercedes (2011), Jeep (2012), BMW (2006), and so on... none of them come close to the Lexus for tech.
Pandora is a huge plus.

Best Features

Everything technology, the comfortable seats, and the smooth quiet ride.

Worst Features

Fix the remote start, it's incredibly difficult to tell if you've switched it on. Not only that but I believe you can't be more than 75ft away to activate it?! My Jeep that was 10k less expensive can be activated from about 300ft away. Where is the audible response? Why is it so difficult to activate? Worst of all, once you've activated it if you touch the car or unlock button it will turn off the car? This is ridiculous. Most cars with remote start stay on and won't allow someone to drive away unless they have the key in their pocket and they hit the start button once in the car (while the car is running from remote start). It's not rocket science people.

Hi there. I have 2012 Jeep GC Laredo and am considering getting the RX 350. Could you comment on pros and cons of this lexus compared to your jeep since you had both? Much appreciated, thanks!!
