Bought this SUV 6 months ago as a CPO. Prior to this one had another 08 RX, which developed nasty rattles. This one is made in Japan (the only color of RX that is made in Japan: Brandywine mica...all other colors represent RX made in Canada)...big difference in built quality: solid feel, steering is more solid on center. I like almost everything in this car: many comfort features standard compared to other luxury brands, like auto-dimming side mirrors, cornering xenon lights... The pickup is great compared to the earlier versions (RX300 and RX330)...we also have an 01 RX300 with over 100K on it and it is still comfortable to drive, but the pickup on the RX350 is much improved, this car never feels underpowered. Fuel economy is very commendable for an AWD SUV with 3.5L V6: I get 18-19mpg average and up to 28mpg on highway only. What do I wish for this car to improve? Make rear-view camera standard, not only with the NAV system; have power-folding mirrors; better sounding base audio system (my 01 RX beats this one by a mile in sound quality (base audio as well). This is not a sports-oriented SUV like FX35 or a Porsche Cayenne, but the handling and ride is more than good enough for everyday driving (having owned Infiniti prior, it does handles better, but you can forget about 19mpg with spirited driving...more like 10-12mpg :-))

Family members who own Lexus sedans have driven them for years with minimal expense of repairs. The sedan sits too low for my husband. The RX350 is the right size for both of us. He is tall but fits well in the driver's seat. I am short but can still get into the vehicle without difficulty. We are happy with our 4-year-old Lexus. It is really like new. We like the rear view camera, the multi-climate control, the leg room in the rear seat, the cargo space. The performance overall of this vehicle is superb re engine, handling, city and highway driving.

Very smooth

by from on December 4, 2012

Great car! Purchased it with 70k miles on it and not one bit of trouble. Very smooth to drive and gets 22mpg. Just wish it had an iPod hook up for music.

08 Lexus RX350

by from College Station - Aggieland on September 18, 2010

Great car, and will enjoy for years. Mrs liked her Camry, even after the crash. Like a vehicle I can "walk" in to.

We were looking to get out of the "mini van scene", and were shopping around for a used SUV. Was looking at Ford and Chevy pretty hard. Came across a Lexus RX350, and test drove it. Even though it was seven years old, it rode better, was quieter, more comfortable, and had more power than the almost new (off lease) offerings of the other brands. We shopped around to find a used Lexus with the options that we wanted, bought it, and couldn't be more happy.

Most beautiful, best driving car I have ever owned

by on August 18, 2017

Interior is beautiful with intuitive controls. It is comfortable and drives like a dream. The car drives like a brand new vehicle, even with over 120k miles on it. I highly recommend a Lexus 350.

Excellent Family SUV

by from Columbus, OH on December 28, 2010

This SUV is excellent for family hauling.....to me the best feature is the auto open/close of trunk with remote & the back-up camera makes reversing a breeze.
