Looks Great - But Vibrates Over 65 MPH

I have been a loyal Lexus Customer for the past 7 years, and truly love the brand. I took an interest in the Lexus NX model after owning IS 250's all these years; however, owing to the snowy New England winters - and wanting a compact SUV, which was good on gas – I thought this was a dream come through. I bought my NX 200t AWD from Herb Chambers Lexus in late July, and have taken it in 6 times for the same problem - vibrations over 65 mph. The first technician told me, that this type of vibration was typical for a 4 cylinder vehicle, and I just didn't understand. I allowed him to insult my intelligence. I went in and complained to the Service Director, after which I was joined by the Lead or Master Technicians of 20+ years, Andy, who went for a road test with me, and confirmed that I was not crazy, and the vehicle does in fact vibrates - though slight to moderate. I was provided a loaner for two weeks, during which time the vehicle was aligned, balanced, changed right front tire (Michelin), and subsequently all four tires to Bridgestone brand – to no avail. I was finally returned the vehicle on Monday October 5, 2015 – and told that the Field Technician Specialist from Lexus HQ, came onsite to look into the matter, felt the same vibrations, and reported to National – however, there is nothing else that could be done as this is "standard operational characteristics" of this new model. They mentioned that they drove 5 new NX models on the lot and they all felt the same way. Why am I not surprised? The first time I reported it, and they gave me a brand new one to drive for the day, I reported it felt the same way, after driving it for 10 minutes on a very smooth section of I-95. Let me be clear, if you driving the vehicle within the city – it’s fine. However, if you drive on the highways, like I do each day for work – it’s becomes noticeable, and annoying, and proves for an uncomfortable drive. I take it, by Lexus coining the defect "standard operational characteristics" – it lessens the blow that it is in fact a defect which needs their immediate attention. But until then, I am force to drive another vehicle – while the vehicle I am paying for, a New Lexus NX 200t AWD – sits in my drive way.

This is a fantastic car - new model to Lexus this year - not much negotiation in price - but worth the cost! Purchased the F Spprt with red leather interior and stitching - absolutely love it. There is nothing to complain about this car - read somewhere that the cargo was limited - if I required a vehicle for cargo - well then I would perhaps buy a larger SUV - I have taken this on major trips and have more than enough space for our belongings - car rides like a dream and is very responsive. Not to mention I have remote start from my phone - great for the snow!

I was given this car as a courtesy car while my IS250 was getting some maintenance. I did not like lexus suv's cause I always though they looked kinda like mini van. This car is very sporty, and as a petite young lady I fit comfortably in this car, and feel safe ans secure. This is a rare feeling when youre only 5 foot tall. And trust me I have test driven many cars. This car is a dream, it handles just like my IS250. The only downsides are I dont like the leather colors, I prefer solid color leather interior, I also prefer touch screen nav although the mouse is a nice touch, and I wish the car had a bit more up and go but im sure thats available in the 300 model. Did i mention it has a wireless charging station oh and the mirror warnings and park assist are amazeballs. LOVE THIS CAR!!!

I like all the safety features of the Lexus NX 200t such as parking assist and blind spot monitor. I also like the remote feature so I could monitor any alerts on the vehicle at any time. Both the interior and exterior of the car are classy. It's very comfortable to drive, and I enjoy driving this car.

First Lexus and I am very impressed with the NX200T Sport F AWD. Overall fun to drive, pretty nimble and way better than expected acceleration. For the future, a V6 /higher horsepower version would be a great addition. So would be a Mark Levinson audio option. Otherwise, no complaints so far!

A BOLD AND MODERN LOOKING SUV PERFECTLY SIZED!!

I purchased the NX 300H in Northern California on 12/24/14. Before buying this car, I looked closely at the BMWX3, Audi Q5 and the Acura RDX. I liked the BMW but felt the styling was a little dated and also the BMWs long term reliability and maintenance cost after the warranty concerned me. The RDX's styling felt plain outdated and looked boring. The Q5 was a formidable opponent but I simply liked the NX's bolder styling better. I also noted Lexus' overall long history of reliability. I picked the hybrid simply because I wanted performance but reasonable fuel economy. I figured this was a good time to get a decent price on hybrid due to low gas prices. The NX 300H also runs on REGULAR fuel--a plus!! For me, the NX felt perfect--not too big and not too small. It feels bigger than the RAV 4 which I had also considered--but the NX offers the level of luxury which was simply not available on the RAV 4. I find my NX 300H to be very quiet, with a firm controlled ride. The technology is impressive--many reviewers comment negatively on the touch pad but as a long term non mouse laptop user it is simple for me and now I use mostly voice commands to control must functions including the nav, phone and ipod functions. Value is only 3 stars due to difficulty price negotiating. only got a few hundred off the msrp (I guess this was better than paying over the MSRP) but I was not surprised as I had already done price research and noted this was a brand new model. My NX gets attention in the parking lot and it seems other cars like to drive along side to check it out at times. The only thing the NX didn't offer which I had wanted was a panoramic moon roof (it seems toyata/ lexus don't offer any panoramic moon roofs?? Wonder why?), which is available on the Audi Q5 and the BMW x3. My nx came with a regular moon roof, 3 beam led auto high beam head lamps, Blind spot monitor with cross traffic, park assist, "nu luxe" fake leather.

Nice SUV

by from Chandler , AZ on June 26, 2015

We already have an IS 250 so adding the NX was an easy adjustment. The NX is well made and fun to drive. The turbo is very responsive and the seats are very comfortable. All good so far.

I was ready to get back into an small SUV and test drove several but the minute I drove this one, I was sold. You expect luxury from Lexus and this one has it in spades! The exterior is head-turning and the interior is lush and comfortable. The controls are very intuitive and easy to learn and the ride is extremely smooth and agile. It is filled with state-of-the-art electronics. The seats fit the body and are very comfortable. There is plenty of power, too. I am very happy I chose the NX200t!
