Love this ride

Had a rx 350 prior to this one I purchased. Got this one used w/ 32,500 on it. Wow what a great ride AWD with snow mode, sport mode, eco mode. Sport mode tends to tighten up the car w quicker steering and tighter suspension. Snow mode is for you know Snow. Eco mode gives it a floating feeling. I also tow my 2200# pop up with ease.


I have owned the cars (2 of them) for about 3 year

I have liked both cars, (a 2013 and a 2015). They have both been excellent. I like the gas mileage and the reliability. I like the "ride". I would buy them again. I have put about 25,000 miles on both cars. No problems.


Huge disappointment

I purchased a used 2013 Lexus RX 450h. In 10,000 miles it has had $9600 worth of warranty work and there is still a noise the dealership is unable to find after 4 trips to Lexus. Mileage is good but not what is advertised even when driving careful. I purchased this based on all the wonderful customer reviews but it's been nothing but a huge dissatisfaction to me. 7 trips to Lexus so far and the latest repair was a set of fuel injectors for $2700. The parts are ridiculous for this car (450h) I wish I would never had made this purchase and will never purchase another Lexus product.


Very reliable car with a nice interior.

great sound system, great MPG. It is very well thought in about detail and materials used. i met all of my needs. I want to buy a new one as well


Looks and performs like it is one year old.

Love this car! People compliment it as if it were new. Comfortable, good mileage, luxurious. Am I getting the new version of this same vehicle? Absolutely. I have owned 3 of these consecutively.


If not for the lack of comfort of seats...5 Stars

I just purchased this vehicle used, of course :)), love mostly everything about it. However the leather seats are cracked and the seats are not as plush as one would expect. I just got rid of my 2006 Lexus RX 400h and my seats were not cracked at all and severely comfortable, as if you were sitting on a leather couch. I read a lot of reviews about this model car and saw a few of them on various car lots before my purchase and my complaint about the cracked seats is experienced by many lexus rx 400h owners of my similar year. The quality of the leather is different than the previous models. Lexus definitely dropped the ball on this! One lady mentioned having her same year and model garage kept and even covered the seats with towels to prevent the sun from damaging the seats, however after 7 months of owning her car at the hefty price tag of $50k she is left with cracked seats and Lexus unable to help her because the seats are not covered in the warranty etc. The car drives wonderful. Looks great! I get a lot of compliments on it, esp the color (burgundy w/brown seats). I love my experience so far but hate my seats current condition. So why buy it right? I know. Truth is the car has a lot of potential. This issue was on so many of this modem, I just chose to hang in there with the purchase ... bought through Carvana. The car was delivered to my front door without physically seeing it. I had 7 lousy days to return it for another but I just paused and saw chose to see the overall good in the car vs the cosmetic defect that after researching was prevalent in this model.


Made me a believer of Lexus!

Wow so this car is one of Lexus's better attempts to really capture efficiency & luxury all in 1 package not the absolute most efficient I would challenge that new technologies might have them pair turbocharged 4-cylinder with the hybrid sys with a larger battery pack to make this vehicle produce more power/ efficiency as a offering yet still have the v6 model nonetheless the car was absolutely super creamy and soft it's not a sports SUV it's definitely luxury. The infotainment center is crap they've been using that for 10 plus years all the way down to the Prius they must redesign.


More than what we expected!

This car is very comfortable and quiet. It handles very easy for an SUV and feels safe . Blind spot monitor and park assist are great features. Look forward to taking long road trips in this car.


Luxury and very reliable .

The best car there is in SUV of its class . Extremely smooth and quiet ride . Great gas mileage . Trustworthy car with a good looking interior .


By far the best vehicle I’ve ever owned.

5 stars in every category. You have to drive one to feel the love. Drives great, very comfortable, 28/30 mpg. Plenty of leg room for passengers.
