Very comfortable, quiet ride. Nothing intrudes on my peace of mind while driving my RX350. I have owned almost a year and driven approximately 4500 miles both small town and interstate. I traded a 2016 ES350 sedan in for this SUV. Only had 2000 miles on it but just didn't please me. My lady friend has hip problems and found the sedan too low to enter and exit without pain. So, I traded down one year to the RX. The seat height is just right for the petite little lady. The RX styling is subdued and classical. It should stand up well over the years. The 2016 and 2017 Lexus front grill is outrageous in my opinion. A couple of years ago the Lexus dealer made fun of my 'buck tooth' Acura but seems to accept the snarling Lexus LOL. A word of caution: research not only the year car you want, but also read comments a year or two on either side of the car you are thinking of buying. I find that some people don't adapt readily to the 'newer' car in performance and appearance. They are often very critical of a newer model because they are so accustomed to the old car. But do pay particular attention to dealer experiences. Update: The RX350 is high quality in all respects: I have owned Mercedes, BMW, and Audi and nothing is better than the quality of my 2015 RX350. If you want a sports car look somewhere else, but if you want a quiet, smooth competent car that will retain resale value, this is it. I laugh at those that expect both plush, easy ride, AND sports car handling!! Come on. I am 74 and love my Lexus!!

Luxurious but Dissapointing

I had a RX 300 and then a RX 350, 2009, both of which I loved. They drove like a car and felt like a car, but had the extra room of an SUV. A true crossover car. However, this car is bigger and feels like you're driving a boat. It drives like a large SUV, which I did not want. I can't even see over the hood very well and the seats are up as far as they can go, so now, I have an extra seat cushion. So much for the heated and air conditioned seats. The 2009 was much more comfortable. I really miss the arm rest in the 2009. I make a shake in the morning and now, the cup holders are even smaller!!! I know this is a little thing, but it only holds a water bottle, not my shaker bottle! Why? Why, Lexus, would you make this change? Very inconvenient. The navigation is really slow and painful to use, and does not respond well to voice activation. I also miss the 6 CD changer. The mouse pad is difficult to use, especially when you are driving. Also, there are no guide lines with the back up camera. My husbands new Jeep Cherokee has them, but the Lexus doesn't??? Bottom line, it feels like a full size SUV and the 2016's are even bigger. I won't buy another one of these. They had a wonderful car with the RX 300. I wish I had another one. Lexus pretty much ruined the RX 350 now. It's a shame. And the new 2016's are pretty ugly with that front end grill they have. It doesn't even look safe. Lexus, what are you thinking????

My 3rd Lexus SUV

Horrible service, unreliable, bad AC

I wanted a lexus because my entire family has been driving lexus vehicles for 25+ years. Between myself and my extended family, we've owned around three dozen lexus vehicles over the years. My vehicle is the last Lexus anyone in my family or circle of friends will ever buy again. It's not worth the money or the time. When I first bought it, they promised me it would be ready for pickup the next day. The next day came, followed by three entire weeks of them calling me every other day telling me "it will be here tomorrow". I drove around in a rental for three weeks while they figured out where my car, which I already paid for, was located. Finally I get it, with around 10 miles on the odometer. A week later, not 100 miles later, I start getting a moldy stink from the AC. I take it back to the dealer, they claim they can't smell anything (despite it being so pervasive it sticks to my clothes and earns comments from co-workers), but spray the AC system anyway, and it clears up the smell....for about a week. I took it back another couple times to get cleaned out, again same story "we don't smell anything, but we'll clean it anyway". It smells bad for the first 15 minutes of driving, and anytime i try to turn down or turn off the AC. As long as it's on blast, the smell seems to be dilute enough to not be noticeable. So fast forward six months, I'm driving across the country on a sunday, in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania when I get a flat. I call lexus support/roadside assistance. They said they can't do anything for me. It's a sunday night and it's about to snow, so they can't send anyone over until the next day. The closest lexus dealership is approximately 200 miles away in bad weather. So I put on the spare, and started calling every tire shop within a 20 mile radius. No one has the tire I need. The lexus's standard 19in tires are so specific, only dealers and a handful of places around the country have them. To add insult to injury, there are huge swaths of country where the closest lexus dealer is hundreds of miles away. Anyway, I expand my search radius and find a costco 140 miles away that carries a compatible tire (after sitting in a hotel calling tire shops for two days straight). Except since it's AWD and the tires are not completely identical, it means I had to replace all four tires (about $1,500) because I got ONE flat. A little while later I moved into a new house in a new state, and took it to the dealer again to see what they can do for the AC. They said they use a different, new chemical cleaner (but even though they don't smell it - a bold faced lie) they will still clean it for me. After that treatment, every single day my lexus has smelled like someone poured fresh vinegar into the AC ducts. It's a smell almost identical to sticking your head into a bag of salt&vinegar potato chips. Again, the dealer is refusing to do anymore service. They said to examine what's really going wrong, they need to take the entire dashboard apart. They refuse to do so without payment, refuse to acknowledge any of my warranties or service plans, and refuse to give me a loaner vehicle in the meantime unless I pay for it. My insurance has a $1000 deductible, so I'm not going to pay for that service. I tried complaining to their managers, who refuse to call me back. To make things even worse, any service at any lexus dealer has generally resulted in a 5-6 hour wait. Even oil changes. Meanwhile, when I take it to any other shop, it's a 20 minute wait to get an oil change at a quarter of the price. I complained to lexus corporate about the smell issue, and they are requiring me to jump through a dozen hoops and fill out binders of paperwork to get anything done. The lemon law is complicated too by the fact that I bought the car in CA and moved to NY shortly thereafter, and I'd need to go to california court to get the dealer to buy back the car. You may be wondering, WHY DOES MY CAR SMELL? Well....here is why: Lexus/toyota is currently (since 2009) a defendant in a class action lawsuit regarding this very issue. A certain percentage of their vehicles have defective condenser coils on their AC. They have an anti acid and anti mold coating - Aluminum Hydroxide - which corrodes and flakes off on some vehicles, and gets blown into the passenger compartment as a fine grey dust akin to cigarette ash. This chemical is used in anti-acid pills, so it's not dangerous when swallowed. But it sure is dangerous when inhaled! Once the coating flakes off, the condenser coil becomes a petri dish and starts to smell like mold or mildew first, then like vinegar, depending on what kind of mold/yeast/bacteria has been growing inside. Don't expect any explanations from lexus, they play stupid about it because if they lose this suit, they could loose an incredible amount of money. It's best for them to keep their customers in the dark about it. Anyway, I won't tolerate that anymore, and neither will anyone I know.

Overall I love this car, however, a recent experience has opened my eyes to what Lexus is willing to do to create a positive customer service experience. I have had this 2015 RX for 2 months. I brought it in to service this week due to the fact that the gridlines disappeared when backing up. I am being told now that the navigation system in the 2015 and camera system does not come with gridlines. I feel that these folks are calling me a liar. Why on earth would I take my car for service and ask them to fix this issue if they were never there to begin with. Service manager has contacted Lexus technical assistance and checked other 2015 models and is basically stating that the car was never equipped with the lines. I am not a happy customer........Those lines helped guide me when backing in to a tight space.

My wife wanted a Lexus... Bad. I tried talking her out if it but she wouldn't listen. When it came time to pick one out, I made the mistake of pushing for the F Sport because it was much better looking than the rolled under front bumper standard version. The big problem with the F Sport is the ride and the transmission. We live in Wisconsin and test drove the car in the summer on decent roads. The ride is stiff... really stiff. I was concerned but the style got in the way of my judgement. Now that it's winter and the roads are crap (you know what I mean if you live here), I hate the ride. Our subdivision is older and the heaving on the street makes the car feel like you're riding a bucking bronco. I actually drive on the wrong side of the street in some places to avoid the bumps. The stiffness has gotten old in a hurry. The other issue is the transmission. It's a joke. Why on earth would Lexus put in a eight speed tranny when they've programmed it to get into top gear as soon as possible? First gear is way too low. You step on the throttle from a stop and if you don't ease back to almost an idle position, it over-accelerates and makes it feel like you've mashed the pedal to the floor. There's a very fine line between idling away from a stop and lunging up to second gear. Then it shifts...shifts...shifts... and by the time your going twenty miles an hour... you're in fifth gear. Hit forty... you're in eighth. The engineers have programmed the trans to get into top gear as soon as possible to save fuel. Then comes the downshift issue. You get off the freeway, slow to thirty, as you step on the throttle to accelerate off, it doesn't downshift. You press harder and it still won't downshift. Not until you really give it some serious throttle, it will finally decide to downshift. The other annoying thing is... you're moving along at 70 and you hit a headwind, or the road heads uphill. It immediately downshifts as soon as you give it the hint of more throttle. Oh... one more transmission programming oversight. The paddle shifters. You're driving along at 55, you apply throttle to accelerate, it won't downshift as usual, you pull the left lever to downshift... and it goes from eighth to fifth. What's up with that? I want seventh, then sixth. Dumb. On the good side... Styling is nice, considering these cars are so cluttered trying to find their identity. Interior is very nice. Stereo is good. Seats have everything including the drivers side moves back when you shut it off. It's quiet. Motor goes well (when you really press on the gas) On the not so good side... For a $53,000 car, the steering wheel isn't heated, it's hard and has no grip at all. The exhaust is annoyingly loud (another brilliant marketing move just for egotists). The car developed an rattle in the left front fender that took a couple trips to the dealer before the they found the problem. They thought I was nuts after multiple complaints and in the end my analysis was spot on. The tire pressure monitor had problems after a few thousand miles and we've been back twice to balance and rotate the tires trying to eliminate noise. Hasn't helped. To me, the car's a loser. I pushed hard for the Pathfinder but lost out. My wife keeps a stiff upper lip and says she likes it. I guess that's what counts in the end. I bet it's gone at the end of the lease.

Nice car, but needed major repair

We bought our RX 350 in September of 2015. We also have a 1999 Lexus RX 300 that we love. After owning the RX 350 for only 5 months we noticed an oil leak under the car. We took it to the dealer and it was an oil leak from the timing chain cover. Very disappointed with this. The dealer said it would take at least a week to repair it. We never had any major problems with our 1999 RX.

Smooth ride, But....

This is my first 'luxury car'. It's fun to drive & handles well. There are however a few disappointments... 1. Remote start turns engine off upon entering the car, even if you have the key with you. This seems like a time & fuel waste. 2. You can start the car, leave the key at home and drive as much and as far as you want to. While doing so, you will see the warning message "No key detected" on the instrument panel. I would prefer the car keep running with remote start as long as I have the key with me than having the ability to drive an already running car without a key. Very counterintuitive.... 3. No backup camera gridlines. I envy my friends who paid much less for cars that have the camera grid. 4. Radio operations and presets. Its not easy to operate.

It is the last year of the true midsize RX, the 2016 is larger. Still a happy camper after 4000 miles, and I'am really happy with the mileage, 28 highway at 70 with air on and 22 plus in true stop and go driving. The only thing I don't like is the throttle response is quite quick.

Love this car

Walked into dealership on last day of Lexus December sale which ended jan 4. They had the exact car I wanted and made me a deal I couldn't refuse. Car is solid, rides smoothly and is very accommodating for a 6'1" 200 punder. I've had an BMW X3 and a ml350 and I like the way this car drives better. I love the way the rear seats slide forward for more cargo room . I didn't like the look of the 2016 . It looked like a murano to me. If you can still find a 2015 model, buy it.

Exceptional car. My wife and I love it so far.

This is a very comfy luxury SUV. If you expect driving engagement, you will be disappointed. The interior materials are of very high quality. We do not like the mouse control as it is too distracting and doesn't work properly.

The choices of colors and options in the model year 2015 were drying up. I didn't particularly liked the style of 2016 and from everything I read, I knew I would prefer the 2015. I ended up getting a demo but it doesn't matter I got everything else I wanted or needed. I can't believe it's mine!

This is a great all around mid sized suv. It's very comfortable. visibility is great all around. parking sensors provides extra aid in parking in tight spots. There is more than sufficient amount of space for 4 adults. The cargo area is large. Gas mileage is reasonable for it's class. Power is also reasonable for it's class. Snow and ice handling is excellent even with all season tires. Very comfortable and relaxing on long trips. Drove it to Las Vegas last summer, it proved to be an excellent long trip suv. With 8500 miles driven, has not been to the dealer for any type of repairs or adjustments. Excellent fit and finish.

This is what you get for $40,000, Really?

My wife wanted a fancy, smanchy Lexus and so far I am very unimpressed! This RX-350 rides very rough, it's like riding a buckboard, it's terrible! I might as well be riding in a Toyota Corolla or a Nissan Versa. I also can tell this vehicle is going to be a nightmare for repairs. There are way to many things to go wrong, electronics, sensors, way to much for me. I would give anything to get my 2005 Toyota Highlander back - anything! Not only am I having "buyers regret", I'm also irritated that I allowed my lovely wife to choose this vehicle.

I read some of these reviews and think whoever wrote it either does not understand what this SUV is or should have bought a different vehicle. I knew going in this is not a sports car but it is a great SUV. I had a 2010 RX for 60K miles and did nothing but required maintenance. The battery died at 55K and Lexus replaced it free of charge. This 2015 is another fine trouble free SUV. Just did 15K service, 10K was free, 15K was $100. That's it so far. And this RX is quieter and more refined than the 2010. I am 60, owned all kinds of cars and this is by far the best ownership experience I have ever had. I use Lexus of Palm Beach in Florida and they are just great. They honestly strive to make you 100% satisfied and don't settle for less.

I had a 2006 RX 350 for 10 years and absolutely loved it. I wanted to purchase the Volvo SUV but my husband convinced me to stick with Lexus since we had such a great experience previously. Unfortunately this 2015 RX350 is no that great. The navigation is very annoying and takes so long to enter an address, I prefer to use the map app on my iphone so can can just say the address and off I go. I really miss my armrest... I know its something most people don't care about but I like to have an armrest where it meets my elbow. My biggest complaint is the gas economy. It's supposed to range from a minumum of 18 MPG local. It only gets 14 MPG on average!!! which is worse than the V8 Ford Explorer Limited that I had from the 90's. This is a huge gas guzzler - thank goodness the gas prices have gone down. On a positive note, I love the seats, they are very comfortable with beautiful color option of "saddle"... or brown. It's very roomy and looks great. The service from Lexus is also always top notch.

An awesome RX 350 !

Recently traded a 2015 Lexus NX for a 2015 Lexus RX350 . There is a huge difference in the ride quality. The NX was just too small. Coming from a Highlander, the RX is a much better fit ! Several have commented on the ride of the RX...I find it very smooth and quiet. The seats are very comfortable, and I got a loaded RX. The Heads Up Display is one of my favorite features. Your eyes stay on the road while the speed is flashed in the windshield. The Mark L. sound system is also awesome. Just spend a little time getting the balance and adjustments right on it. As the new 2016 RX350 will soon be out, it was just too big, and the 2015 has the better look IMO. I'm not a fan of the huge front grill on the 2016. Mine has most everything you can get on it, and it's fun on the highway, unlike other reviews that say it's boring. Sure, it's not a sporty ride, but it isn't intended to be one. While I love the looks and came close to an X5, the Lexus reliability and awesome service keeps me coming back. You can't go wrong with the RX, and right now there are some amazing deals on them at the end of the year.

We experienced major problems with the tires the car was delivered with. The tires cupped at 16,000 miles. Car became very noisy. Lexus agreed to cover half the cost to put a set of new Michellin tires on the car which we did. Made a world of difference. At 38,000 miles on the car, we love it. Would consider a new one, but don't like the current styling.

Who allowed this electronics interface to be released???

Over my driving life, I've owned more than 30 cars of many different makes and models. I've spent my 20 year career in technology. I enjoy cars and I love tech and am tech savvy. This car, by far, has the absolute worst electronics interface I've ever seen. I had read it was bad, but with my experience thought, how bad can it really be? Well, it's awful... I'm frankly dumbfounded. Toyota is known for being overly intrusive / nannyish, but this is absurd. There aren't preset buttons to change the station, just steering wheel controls. It always want to show the map and overlay other info (but only for a little while). In short, it kind of ruins what is otherwise a really great car.

Really pleased with my decision

I researched & test drove virtually every model in this class and even put a deposit on a 2016 Acura RDX because it was the hot new SUV with tons of safety features at a great price (the RX350 was my #2 choice due to the dated body style). But I needed a new car before the Acura arrived so I ended up leasing the RX350 because of the incentives (this is the last year for this body style)and Lexus customer service ratings. A few months later I'm super pleased all around. It has a very comfortable and quiet ride, great display on the Nav, good fuel economy (avg. 20 mpg) and room for 2 mountain bikes and a dog in the back w seats folded down. My boyfriend who drives an ML550 is even impressed.

Very disappointed

Navigation system did not show road speed limit, lexus customer service do not stand behind product, very poor customer service.and also in navigation system only work with voice activated, in order to search point of destination you must have to pull over car , then you can search, so i am caring after market navigation system with me, What a rip off $2000. I am going back to Acura MDX. which is not only cheaper but best reliable, comfortable. easy to handle.

Older models are better

I found out about some things on the 2015 compared to my 2010 RX.. 2010 rx has moving headlights when turning, 6 disk CD player, Hi beam auto dimming, clearer Bluetooth when talking to some one Via Car to cell ph. (sounds tinny on the 2015) . The back doors on the 2010 has larger pockets then the 2015. The 2015 does not have any of these things. looks like the only advantage to me is the blind spot monitor. The Garage door opener is in a better location on the 2010, It is now on the mirror which can move when using it. The inside of the head lights fog a little when high humid on the 2015. You can see it when the lights are on. These are my observations when talking to other people and

Lexus should be ashamed

I just bought a 2015 F sport to replace my 05 BMW X5 4.4i. All I can say is that this car is complete garbage. I've never felt so much body roll and front end weight in my life. This thing under steers like no other in a corner. It's a bad feeling when the wheels turn but the car doesn't. My ten year old X5 pulled so much harder and handled much much better even with it being a lot heavier than the RX. I felt safe in the X5 performing high speed maneuvers while I don't even trust the RX to take a 15mph corner. The engine in the RX is garbage as well. All this thing is is a glorified Toyota rav 4. I'm going back to the Lexus dealer to get my BMW back for me and my families safety.

My one month old Lexus saved my lfe

I purchased a 2015 Lexus on 8-29-2014. On 9-29-2014 I was driving 75 MPH going East on Interstate 90 in Montana. A tire came off a trucks trailer that was going West and rolled into my lane hitting my Lexus in the front bumper and radiator. The front of the car looked like it had been bent into a V-shape. Everything was smashed. The impact was so strong that the engine block was cracked. The airbags deployed and all of the seat belts locked. I WAS NOT HURT!!! Paramedics and tow truck operator could not believe I was OK. They said people frequently die in this kind of accident. My insurance company declared the car a total loss. On 10-29-2014 I purchased my second 2015 RX 350 F.

As solid as a Mercedes E-350

After owning three E-350's, a 2000, 2006 and a 2010, I traded my 2010 in August for the RX350 because I needed more trunk space. I was hesitant at first but now I am not disappointed with the RX. The high speed maneuvers however are not like the Mercedes, as expected of course. The quality of the RX is as good as the Mercedes and the ride is much smoother. The steering feel of the RX is better and the body leans less than the Mercedes. The RX's leather seats are more comfortable and luxurius, very much like an S Class Mercedes. Overall, the RX is quiet, luxurious and easy to handle. After owning the Lexus for a year and a half, I still feel the same way about it except for the poor gas mileage ( 17mpg average) and the driving position. Even though the seats are comfortable, I cannot find a comfortable driving position. I looked at the 2016 RX350, and a comfortable seat position was easy to find. The car has been very dependable and the service is outstanding.

Satellite Radio Problems

Disappointed. I bought a 2015 Lexus RX350 this June (replacing my 2010 RX350), immediately noticed that reception of the satellite radio is constantly being interrupted. I have had Sirius Radio for 10 years now; I am driving down the same streets and have never before had any service interruptions. Lexus has told me they cannot do anything about it. Local dealer has told me it is a problem with all 2014 & 2015's.Truly affects the enjoyment of my driving experience.
