I must love it, this is my 3rd RX!!!

Had 2004 RX330, then 2009 RX350, now the 2015 RX350. Was truly looking at the Mercedes GLC300 but side by side, ride by ride, and comfort by comfort, Lexus won me over once again. I was disappointed when this model first came out as the 2009 was the last little 'sporty' RX, but have gotten used to seeing this model. Hate the 2016 as UGLY so caught the end of the 2015 line. Extremely comfortable, quiet, luxury ride. Not disappointed and not looking back. For a long ride, there is no more comfortable car. Excellent sound system (and not even the upgraded one ML)... This is still a head turner and fits our family more than enough. A+++. Buzzing around town is even Fun! AND - its back to regular gas, thank you!! I have never found the cost of ownership to be overwhelming with Lexus. Par and much better than MB and BMW.. I totally trust the Lexus brand and the dealer always goes out of their way to resolve any issue you may have. They protect their brand loyalty and take customer satisfaction very serious. Buy one!

Very noisy cabin, uneven ride

Very noisy cabin made worse by tires cupping at about 16,000 miles. Replaced tires with warning from dealer service rep, that tire cupping and resulting noisy ride is a recurring problem with this vehicle. Car was delivered with Dunlop Tires, replaced with Michellin tires. Very expensive. If problem reoccurs, I'll be very unhappy. Also, suspension delivers a pretty hard knock and thud when driving on uneven pavement. Got a few rattles here and there too. Not happy with this thing. Would not consider buying another one.

Terrible Suspension

We have owned nine RX 350s of different vintages, and we loved the car until 2010 when they redesigned the chassis and rear suspension. In order to get more cargo space in the rear, they designed a trailing arm suspension system which flat-out doesn't work. The car now has the bumpiest ride imaginable. We are now in the process of recycling our later model RX 350s. If you want a smooth ride, stay away from this car.

This is my 2nd RX350 Lexus. Its a dream to drive and is well equipped to provide a total luxury ride, as well as comfort and safety. I love the S.O.S. and Lexus navigation assist. The best part is that this vehicle runs on regular gas . The synthetic oil can go 10,000 before needing an oil change. I'm still learning to appreciate all its features. So far it's been a great experience.

3rd Lexus

by from Washington DC on July 14, 2015

This is my 3rd Lexus. First was a GS350 AWD. 2nd a 2010 RX450h. The 3rd is a 2015 RX450h. Had to have more options on the car I already loved before the new style change. The RX hybrid is just a great...
This is my 3rd Lexus. First was a GS350 AWD. 2nd a 2010 RX450h. The 3rd is a 2015 RX450h. Had to have more options on the car I already loved before the new style change. The RX hybrid is just a great car. It's just that simple. It's smooth and quiet and halls people and stuff around, while getting great gas mileage. Do miss the prettier brown wood in my 2010 RX. Bamboo just isn't as pretty. They also deleted the wood from the back seat center armrest. I agree with an earlier review that the trip odometer button is impossible to see or find without stopping the car. So are the panel illumination buttons. I use those a lot at night, of course. And the remote touch will never be as good as the touch screens. I hope Lexus gives us back the touch screen someday. I miss that from the 2008 GS 350. It only takes a second to glance over and see where to touch. Remote touch takes too much hunting and fumbling. I like dedicated selector buttons, like MENU or MAP. You can find them by feel even while watching the road.

Lighter than air

by from IL on June 12, 2014

Ride continues to be smoothest of all. Price is about $10K more than last one, 10 years ago. Need a special degree to operate all the electronics

From the numerous vehicles on the road that are Lexus, there has to be something really correct with all those autos. For us, we have owned many of the Lexus 350's and find them so dependable and with all the gadgets one can get a grasp on. The new wide angle back up feature that protects anything behind you as you back up. The arrows in the side mirror gives you a heads up of a near vehicle and the indicator that you are close to something in the front or rear when parking is a real plus as well. One of the best features on the 2015 is that they now run just fine on regular gas rather than premium. That is a major savings. The headrests in the rear restrict your sight looking back and the console is just not needed to be so large and encompassing. Correct both of those and you have the perfect car at a reasonable price.

I do not know how they did it, but I can get 4 golf bags in the back and still have more room for the Golfers in the back seat than the larger Buick that I traded in. 22 mpg and the best handling car I have ever driven. Negative: there are so many bells and whistles it will take me three years to learn how to use all of them. lol

Most awesome experience. Couldn't make a deal in Baton Rouge, LA went to cars.com. Purchased from Herrin-Gear in Jackson, MS. Best thing I ever did. Best sales person and finance manager. Call Chip Partridge and Robert Hadden. I was in and out the dealership in less than 45 minutes and the financing was being shopped and done while I was on the drive there. Saved thousands and got more options.

I leased a 2015 RX350 F-Sort Crafted line. Let me tell you there nothing sporty about it. In fact it is worst handling lexus i have driven. The 8 speed transmission is very choppy. Straight off the line shifting is so poor that normal things like passing another vehicle in traffic or speeding to gain momentum are the most embarrassing moments because it quickly up-shifts into higher gear making the car loose power. Pressing the accelerator hard the engine roars into higher rpm without any in the momentum. It is the worst POC i have ever driven. It can not even stand up to a 4 cylinder engine.
