Used 2016 RX350 Base
November 6, 2018
I traded in my 2016 RC350 and 2018 NX300h for a used 2016 RX350 Base model with 19,000 miles on it. It has the Nebula Gray exterior and brown interior. The color combination is great, and I love the features and drivability of this car. Even though there's plenty of power, the vehicle is heavy. Driving in Sports mode helps with better acceleration off the line and when I need to punch it in traffic. The vehicle has only one warranty issue, the child safety lock is permanently stuck on the rear drivers' door, something I'll take care of when I bring it in for service.
The only downside to the vehicle is the multimedia system. The mouse controller is absolutely the worst controller to try and navigate the menu. Lexus should have gone with a circular knob surrounded by hard buttons to access some areas (ie: media, enform, info, etc). The voice activation system is old school: the system is set up in buckets, so you have to say one thing at a time (ie: music, song, then name of song). The voice system on my NX was easier, you could tell it to play a particular song in one sentence and it would do it.
Overall, I'm happy with my RX. It has good quality to it and offers most of all the features I'd expect in a luxury SUV. Now if Lexus can fix their media interface and do away with the mouse/trackpad....
