Super reliable, safe, comfortable, looks great. Good gas mileage for SUV. This is my fourth Lexus RX, when I sell this one, buying a 2017. The technology just keep getting better and better!

So disappointed coming from an M-B

I had an ML320 (still do) w/ over 235k miles that has been very capable. So I though this Lexus would be even better, with the existing notion of reliability of Japanese cars. Unfortunately, this car has been disappointing. The transmission jerks between lower gears (1-2-3, especially). It has a horrible rattling noise from the underbody; took to several places and no-one can fix it. It is very basic for the price I paid. No bluetooth, nav, or even backup camera. Poor traction/stability control in the Michigan snow.

Excellent car

This is my second RX. The first was a 04 RX 330. I like this car so much better because it has the larger 3.5 engine and along with that no timing belt to replace! This model also has updated navigation and Bluetooth along with voice command. I love the Lexus brand and the great reviews this car has. I recommend it!

I was looking for a mid-size SUV with power, luxury comfort, good handling, solid engineering, minimal maintenance and a quiet ride. I did a lot of research and test drove 7 different brands. The Lexus was clearly superior to all of the others. The RX350 checked all of the boxes and then some. It is as solid as a tank but it drives like a sport sedan. I knew I'd be sacrificing some MPG to get the power & responsiveness I wanted but I have been very pleased with the mileage considering I drive about 75% city and 25% highway. If I ever get tired of this car I know my next one will be a Lexus too.

So you thought you had a reliable car!

I love the way this car drives and the comfort at this car. The breaking of the car is excellent. However the alternator was replaced at 75,000 miles and today at just less than 90,000 miles I have had to replace the power steering train which is 2000+ dollars and the back right strut which is another $750. I don't consider this a good buy when at 90,000 miles a powertrain starts leaking. I've had BMWs before and never had the issues that I have had with this car now. Today I have a new model SUV that's on loan to me and I was considering a purchase possibly have a newer car since my car is 2008 however after seeing the repairs today I don't trust Lexus to be that good a car. I kept my BMWs 13 and 15 years and never had the major repairs that this car has had. So much for all of the reviews that say this car is so incredibly reliable.

I have a 2008 Lexus RX 350. The dashboard is falling apart because it is junk. This is happening to Lexus vehicles across the country. Lexus has admitted the problem and issued a "warranty enhancement" saying they will replace the faulty dashboards at no cost. The problem is they have no intention of fixing these dashboards. I have been on their repair list for well over one year, each time I call they give excuses that they are waiting on parts. When I ask when the parts might be in? Their response "sometime maybe this year or next year". Buy at your own risk, if anything is faulty they do not stand by their product.

Funky shifting when turning to the right

I have owned 4 Lexus's(Lexi?) before buying my wife a 2008 RX350. Loved a 2000 Rx350, 2005 GX was blah, the 2008 RX350 was the worst of the bunch. Boring driving, not refined at all. Nothing special about it. It had a soft supension and steering that rolled in the corners. The major problem I had was with the shifting, when you would turn to the right from a stop, it would take 2-3 seconds to engage after you turned, besides annoying it was dangerous. When taken to the dealer, they said it was normal. I traded that off for an Escalade the next day. After owning a Cadillac SRX, my wife wants to buy another Lexus, so we have been looking at them again , and it seems there have been a few complaints about tranny issues with the older Lexus. I have owned five Lexi, and after owning several Cadillacs lately, I am ready to get back to a more reliable vehicle, although the problem with the 2008 kept me away from Lexus for 5 years.

The dashboards melt, Lexus is slow to fix.

I bought this car used with 60k miles on it, and 2.5 years later it's at 85k. In that time I've replaced a water pump (~$500) and a rack & pinion (~$1800). Everything else has been general maintenance (oil/brake/filter changes, etc.) The car handles well on the road, and I love the feel of driving it. Unfortunately, the interior of the car has some major issues. The GPS is dated and clumsy to use. The controls for adjusting many common things like fan speed are buried inside a digital menu system that is difficult to use while driving if you want any more control than adjusting a temp and letting it decide whether to blow full speed or low speed fan to achieve that temp. There is no USB / aux input so you're stuck using a tape deck adapter or replacing the stereo console if you want to connect your phone. My biggest problem, however, has been that my dashboard cracked & melted (pics: http://imgur.com/a/B62He) This is part of known issue (https://www.carbuyingtips.com/articles/blog/lexus-to-pay-for-cracked-dashboard-repairs.htm) and is being replaced as part of a warranty recall. However, I've been on a wait list for 9 months to get this replaced, and Lexus is sending 1 or 2 replacements each week to the dealership in my area. Their backlog is over 500 now, and Lexus continues to send 1 or 2 parts each week to fix this. That's going to be 5-10 years at this pace for people near the back of the wait list, and there are almost certainly more people out there waiting to be added to this list. Completely unacceptable response from Lexus.

Lexus Rx 350 is the best!

We currently do not own a Lexus RX 350 but my husband and I did own a Lexus RX 300 up until someone driving 55 mph in a 30 mph zone hit us as we were sitting still at a stop light, the truck did not stop at all and hit us full force which consequently pushed us into a new Honda Pilot which was approximately five feet ahead of us. This accident totaled all three vehicles, but we were the only one who was able to drive our vehicle home, all though the impact knocked our lexus off it's frame, the truck's front end was practically gone. The insurance company totaled our vehicle, but it and God, saved both of our lives. I will and am looking forward to purchasing a Lexus RX 350 Asap.

I cannot begin to tell you how much we love this car. This is the 3rd Lexus in a row. First was a very fast/fun/reliable SC, (lasted to about 350,000 miles and still running) 2nd was an RX300 (not quite as reliable, but good enough I guess - traded at 194,000) This one though, is still better than both previous - only things added were trailer hitch, trailer lighting cord ("factory," just plugged it in to a provided and conveniently located chassis harness). "GADGETS" all seem to work wonderfully and its packed with gadgets. Wonderful comfortable ride.

HELP! Engine very noisy especially whenever I accelerate and I was told by LEXUS that it is normal. When I test drove it, it was not noisy and I thought the noise came from the tires as I was told to change when it was under 20,000 miles as the inner treads were worn.

Excellent family car!

After years and years of research for the perfect "next" family car, my husband and I settled on a used (2008) RX 350, and couldn't be happier. We had bought a Chrysler Pacifica when they first came out in 2004 and had terrible luck with reliability, but couldn't justify trading it in until we got our money out of the thing. So basically we have been looking for the next car for 7 years. Having 2 younger children we were set on another three row vehicle, but were not happy with the costs of a new Pilot, Acadia, Highlander, etc. We then looked at the two row luxury market and almost got a Volvo xc70. I'm so glad we test drove the certified used RX 350 first. Love it!!! and the price.

Very happy with lexus rx350

I have been in my rx350 for almost 3 years and have been very pleased with it. It is sporty, reliable, and luxurious all at once. It has plenty of room for the things I need to haul around as an interior decorator or to take a family vacation. Front and rear seats are both very comfortable. Only minor complaints are acceleration is a bit jumpy and there is a slight blind spot when backing up (resulting in a little fender bender!)

Bought my CPO 2008 RX350 just a few weeks ago, already put 700+ miles on it. Ride is butter smooth, especially helpful over horrible NYC roads... Fuel economy is excellent for an AWD SUV (got 30MPG highway only and 21- 22MPG driving 50/50). Interior is quiet, stylish and attractive. HID headlights are so much brighter than regular halogens I have on my 2004 GX470! Paid $29K with 3yr/100K bumber- to-bumber warranty for a vehicle with only 31K miles and driving and looking like brand-new. Another great product Lexus, and it's what keeps me coming back.

So far, great car!

I am enjoying driving this car, but still getting to know it. I was driving an Infiniti sedan before purchasing this vehicle so the I am still getting used to the change in feel. The RX 350 is not a "fun" ride, but it is a very, very nice ride and calms my soul and makes me feel very nice about the day. I now enjoy driving to run errands or drop off kids to activities instead of loathing it. Overall, I really like the car and look forward to the many years we will have together.

I have had my Lexus for over a year now, and it is a great vehicle. Very powerful, nice looking, and nice interior. But I just started hearing a rattle on the passenger side window that is very annoying. At first it seemed like it was just on bumpy roads, but now it's getting worse. I am going to ask the dealer about it. Other than that a very nice car.

Purchased the FWD 08 RX350 in NOV 08 with 16,000 miles it was certified pre- owned. I like all the bells and whistles that it came with, such as the telescoping steering wheel and leather seats just to name a few. I drove it from SC to TX and the drive was excellent, nice and quiet. I do not like the front design, it looks too feminine and also the so claimed re sale value is terrible. I tried to trade it in and was sadly informed that I would be 10k upside down if i traded it in with 27,400miles in excellent condition. Although it is a nice vehicle it does not hold its value.

Rather than detail all my Lexus woes, which the dealership has tried and sometimes succeeded in fixing, I can just say that this 2008 RX350 is the noisiest car I have had. There is a persistent rattle in the rear passenger window that looks like it is caused by a faulty window assembly. The bumper rattles when turning. The car has been through a bit -- as a car in NYC is wont to be -- but the quality problems have been very disappointing for a car with a stellar reputation.

This Rx is the third I've purchased since 1999. I must admit Lexus got me hooked. I particularly enjoy the sports tuned suspension with the low- profile tires and increased horsepower. The gas mileage is exceptionally well I routinely averaged 27 miles to the gallon on the highway. One experiment on Route 80 from Lake Erie to Jersey border with cruise control set at 65, I actually received 31 miles per gallon.

This is our 3rd RX out of 4. Good ride and features,interior. Navi console impressive but difficult. If you want navigation get a Nuvi or Tom-Tom and save yourself $2k. Backup camera & Bluetooth good features but no IPod or MP3 input (BTW what's with the tape player). Lock-out during driving sucks... give us a break big brother! Maps and POI are out of date... maybe 2005 maps best guess. Update are extra service charge. Ride is rough. Tires loud, interior noise very high (road, engine). Overall comfort for 4 OK but don't drive too far without a break. We get 21-23 mpg not bad. Lawnmower engine but it's perky. Price value more like $30K instead of $40K. Might be our last RX after lease

Good comfort and ride. Gas mileage is surprisingly good, between 18 and 24 mpg depending on how much city vs. highway driving we do. Room inside is good for four people. Cargo area is disappointing with rear seat up. Rx is easy to drive and park. I'm not really overly impressed with anything about the RX except the power plant, it has very good power for a car of this weight. I will return the RX in 23 months but feel satisfied so far. Just not impressed enough to want to buy it.

Vehicle drives and handles great overall. Car had tendency to pull to right while driving. Dealer re-balanced tires and realigned front end on several occasions,but vehicle still had slight pull to right. Around 15,000 miles, car started making a roaring sound while driving (sound like excessive road noise). When I took the car in for the 15,000 mile checkup, dealer informed me that tires needed changing. Dealer said Lexus cars come equipped with low quality tires (Goodyear). Replaced the Goodyear tires with Michelin tires which were recommended by the dealer. By the way, I had to pay for two of the new Michelin tires. Never had a tire wear out in 15,000 miles (40 year driver).

Have only had my 2008 RX 350 for 2 months & really love it. The handling is so smooth even tho the turning radius is not as tight as my 2003 Ford Expedition! The seats allow me to sit up fairly high which I like as I'm short. I find the back lumbar and seat adjustments especially nice. All the tiny lights in the drink holders and floor are a nice touch. The mileage is not too bad, but certainly not all I hoped for. Most of my driving is just around town so I don't know why it various from 14-18 mpg.

This is my 3rd SUV and it is definitely the best. My first was a 1980 K5 Blazer and the second was a 1992 Explorer, both bought new. This is also my 3rd Lexus and the build quality and service is why I like this brand. So far this SUV has been a pleasure to drive. It has the Premium Plus pkg., 18 inch 7 spoke wheels, heated seats and rain sensor wipers, towing pkg. Cargo room is a little small behind back seats but fine when back seats are lowered. I plan to use it for hunting, fishing and carrying my dogs as well as domestic uses.

We carefully selected the RX 350 on reliability, resale and original price and have been very pleased with the vehicle. We bought a new E-350 Benz about the same time, paid $12K more, and got less value than the Lexus. The Lexus navigation and accessories are touch-screen, all the controls are easily accessible and although a very complex machine, is user friendly. The Benz and a new BMW 5-series in our family require a degree in computer science and a full stop to do the same thing the Lexus system does. Sensible driving gets 20 mpg in local traffic.

Purchased the vehicle mid Dec. 2007. This is our first Lexus. Currently has less than 3000 miles. Car has plenty of pep, very quick and responsive handling. Easy to park and a fun car to drive on short trips around town. Not a vehicle for a long trip. Very disappointed in the ride and road noise. Expected the ride to be much smoother and quieter especially for a Lexus. Cannot compare to my E Class MB. This a good vehicle for the lady of the family. I thought I would give the Lexus LS 460 a try in a year or so. After purchasing the RX 350 I've decided to stay with MB.

This is what my wife wanted and it has exceeded her expectations. From my perspective, the RX 350 is boring but dependable and it holds its value. Only one issue, the leather seats are not well made and your clothing colors may darken the seats. The dealer claims " the seats are so soft, that's why they are absorbing the color". That is "bunk". We have a bamboo Pearl exterior with tan leather - clothing fabric should not be absorbed into the seats--be careful. Nothing compares to my LS,but my wife loves the car. And it's all about her.

My wife and I love our Lexus RX 350, an amazing blend of ideal traits providing the utility of an SUV, exceptionally smooth driving experience, startling acceleration for an SUV, incredible gas mileage for an SUV (we're averaging 23.5 mpg in mixed driving), very smart interior layout with little extra touches like the extra retractable cup holder to the left of the steering wheel in addition to the console cup holders. It's extremely comfortable, making short and long trips a pleasure, etc. It's quite evident that a lot of thought went into this vehicle. It's so versatile without compromising performance, safety, quality, or comfort.

Another great product from Lexus

Let me preface by saying that my wife and I have owned several different cars (3 hondas, 1 nissan, 1 lexus, and 1 bmw). This is our first foray into the SUV market. Lexus again has produced another great product/car!! This car is the best value for the money. The one we purchased was silver titanium with black leather. Premium Plus package with navigation. Chrome 18 inch 5 spoke wheels, HID, AFS, and All wheel drive. The car we just got rid of was a piece of crap 2003 BMW 330i sedan. BMWs may have that "fun to drive" factor BUT mechanically and quality wise they can't compare to the Lexus. The build quality on this Lexus is superb. Fit and finish is top notch.

Great SUV... our 2nd one

To sum it up, this is our second RX. Our first was the 2004 RX 330. However, my wife always liked the Bamboo Pearl color, so when the timing was right, we purchased a 2008 RX 350 in that color. Overall, the vehicles are the same. But I will say the changes made from 2004 to 2008 were needed; performance is better, tighter, and overall a real pleasure. The vehicle is now 3 months old and my wife constantly reminds me of how much she LOVES her new car.

I leased a new RX 350 a month ago as my ES 330 lease expired. I needed more room and at a minimum fold down seats. The IS was the only model with fold downs and that was too small. Room is great - feels spacious inside- kids have a lot of room in the back. Got an annoying dash vibration noise in a week and I do hope that can be fixed - very annoying. Feel that the road noise is quite high. Handling is excellent - very good acceleration and fit is finish is superb.

The RX is so quiet, more quiet than my BMW or my wifes Jaguar! The AWD is great. I drove the BMW X5 and MB M Class, and both were $12-$15K more. The Lexus should prove to be a great value!

I recently purchased a new RX 350. I have been very happy so far! I go through about 35k miles a year, so comfort and quality are my biggest concerns and this vehicle meets these with no problems at all. I trade out about every year and this is by-far the most enjoyable midsize SUV that I have owned. And I have driven everything from Toyota to BMW to Honda. There are a few weird things could be changed but not every vehicle is perfect. Great choice for a comfortable and stylish ride and perfect for sales!

I had a 740il for 8 years and should have know it would be a hard act to follow. I didn't expect it to be anything like that but am surprised at the lack of quality I've experienced. I've had two new batteries the first month, not sure why. The driver seat is already showing wear and darkening after a short 6 months. At 10,000 miles the interior rattles began. First the dash and then the windows. I've not been able to get these corrected after 3 attempts. The motor started making a rattling noise in the mornings. Only during the first 5 minutes then it's fine. I'm afraid to see what will follow as time goes on with this car so I'm selling it. Perhaps good for the price but no quality here.

This is my second RX. Just traded in the '04 model and I'm blown away with all the upgrades. Clearly there were focus groups held and Toyota/Lexus listened! Better acceleration/power, better fuel economy, and all the right upgrades to the navigation system. I bought again based primarily on the RX's proven track record for reliability, no test drive, no haggling, and I was blown away when I sent to pick up the car. Everything on my wish list from the '04 was delivered.

I have owned Hondas and Toyotas in the past so appreciate the level of build quality that went into the RX. I have near 15k and not one single problem. I average around 21 in the city, 27 on the highway. In summary, Lexus RX 350 is the gold standard of SUVs.

I purchased my RX350 in Oct. I traded in a BMW, what a huge mistake. The car has many quality defects and is sub standard in all categories. The tires were out of balance, electrical problems, road noise, wind noise,fit and finish problems. The base audio system is poor. The factory Nav. system came with the "old" version of software! For $46K this car is over priced over rated and just a Lexus to forget. It is in the class of a Buick or Cadillac not BMW or MB.Do not purchase one! I will be trading for a BMW or a Benz in the Spring.

For the past 9 years I have had an ML320 and was persuaded to trade it on a new Lexus. So I get the RX 350 and all I can say about it is that the fit and finish are great. For the rated horsepower it seems to underperform. I was used to a car that was much heavier with a lower horsepower rating that outperformed this dog. All I can say about the handling is that it reminds me of an old man car like the old Buick LaSabre. Very boring and no feel of the road. If you own an M Class hold on to it and treasure it.

Purchased the car in March 07, and have about 7500 miles on it. I love everything about the car, from its great looks to the wonderfully comfortable ride. The car has plenty of pep, and gets above average gas mileage for an SUV. The interior cabin is so quiet that it feels like you're in a sound proof room; no road or engine noise at all. The car has just about every luxury feature you can imagine, including a color video back-up camera which is very useful. My first dealer experience at 5K miles was great, they really treated me right. And the best part about that first service is it's free! Anyway, great car, and I'm very happy we got it.

Lexus Quiet!!! This car has a lot of noise. I will be trading for a BMW or Benz in the spring. Do not be fooled. Drive a BMW or Benz before you purchase a RX350. Yes, it is just a dressed up Toyota for 10K more. The RX350 compares to a Ford or Chevy not a BMW or Benz.The only saving grace is the dealer service and the fuel economy is great. I did have two small problems that have been corrected.

I'm updating a review I posted in April. Things have happened since then. The RX was involved in a moderate collision ($2500 in damages to the lower front end) but was able to drive away from the accident. I can't say that for the other vehicle. The Lex is indeed a safe ride. That aside, the only thing I miss about my '05 Solara convertible is the stereo, oh and the convertible part. At the first service interval, I had the dealership install a hitch receiver so I can use a bike rack. Not cheap but worth it, just like the car itself. The only thing that has failed is the express-close feature on the moon roof. The shop was able to reset it.

Just bought RX 350 AWD 2 weeks ago. I love the interior except for a few quirky features like the heated seats on/off button which is like a child's toy. To turn it on and adjust the heat, you have to push a knob that pops out and then turn to select the desired heat. Very conventional way for a SUV w/ $2.7K of nav system. Sound system is not too excellent either, reception very poor.

I traded in my 2005 4Runner for this car two weeks ago and I am so disappointed. I thought I was buying a luxury SUV, but that was not the case. There is way more road noise than I expected. I don't know if this is due to the tires or a lack of cabin insulation. The ride is average, definitely not luxurious, and do not plan on seating more than four adults comfortably. Also, the radio is terrible for a car in this price range. It crackles already at medium volume. I miss my 4Runner!

This is my third Lexus RX and by far the best yet. The previous were 2004, and 2005. The 2008 is smoother, quieter, faster and slightly more fuel efficient than the 330s. The transmission shifts seamlessly and the power comes on more smoothly. This car is one that can handle many needs. Its very comfortable and all the controls are easy to use. Everything works perfectly. The back-up camera and gen 5 nav systems are definitely upgrades over the 2005. Both previous RXs were very reliable with no service issues at all, and this 2008 should be the same. Has no problem in snow. Gets you where you need to go in comfort and without any worries. This is where it excels.

Second Lexus in the garage and first Lexus SUV. The quality, comfort, and luxury are eveywhere in this RX. It has smooth engine with enough power. Ride is very quiet, smooth and comfortable. Got 18 city/22-24mpg highway. Previously owned a Murano. The RX 350 is a step up in terms of luxury, ownership experience and quality. I test drove Benz ML350, FX35 and BMW X5 before buying the Lexus. Lexus USA disables navigation destination input vehicle is in motion. However, there are many ways to bypass this. So do not use this as your excuse not to purchase this great vehicle.

Great vehicle. Having owned it 3 weeks, there are disappointments: 1. Basic sound system is shockingly poor. My 2000 F-150 system is better. We assumed the sound system would be superb and failed to even turn it on during the test drive. I assumed Lexus would overachieve on this basic. Dealer says that's how they all sound. I would have paid for the premium system but there weren't any on the lot. Dealer advises it is not a good idea to post-sale upgrade it due to complexity. 2.The Lexus on site programmer advised that the bluetooth is not compatabile with either of our <1 year old name brand cell phones.

So far, so good! I'm a first time Lexus owner and the transition from internet inquiries to actual possession was very smooth and professional! I will admit, there's a bit more wind noise than I anticipated (based on the reviews); but it's still a quiet ride. I had to make adjustments to the way I would normally sit in order to be truly comfortable in the driver's seat. The navigation system seems adequate (I've compared it to Mapquest/Yahoo Maps and find them to be a bit more precise). I haven't connected the Bluetooth phone yet, so I can't comment on that feature. Actual gas mileage isn't bad for an SUV - I get about 20-23 MPG in the city, so I can't complain. :-)

The RX 350 is the perfect car. The XM/nav/rear camera, etc., work in concert and flawlessly; very easy to operate. Engine power is very adequate with pick up when you need it.

Just got this SUV about 4 weeks ago, and so far it is perfect. None of the noises or rattles that I read about and feared. With the 18 inch wheels, it handles pretty much like a car and not a truck. It also now has plenty of power. Very comfortable, and mileage is around 18-19, which I consider terrific for a new car weighing over 2 tons. So far, I think I made the right decision but it is still very early in the game.

I have had this car for 1 week, and I am in love. It is plush, rides very nicely, and all the interior features work very well together (GPS, XM, Bluetooth, rear camera, entertainment system) - as one system, not as aggregate ones. My only complaint (minor) is that the driver seat does not go back enough for long legs. Also, I find the steering wheel a tad less comfortable than the Toyota Highlander (which this car looks so much like inside). Sound is good. Handling is excellent. Overall, a great buy.

Walking up to it is it's own reward. Having the steering wheel slide out of the way when removing the key makes getting in and out all the easier. Put in the key and the seat, outside mirrors and steering wheel move back to one of two memorized locations. That first five seconds alone make the RX 350 better than my other rides. The all-wheel-drive keeps the tires locked to the pavement as the "killer corssover" eagerly accelerates under a heavy foot. With a minivan ride / height, you are not going to rail any corners. If you try, a bunch of gizmos conspire to take the spirit out of the drive. I suppose that's better than just flipping over but that's why it gets a 7 for performance.

The RX 350 is a smooth and quiet ride with good acceleration when on the move. My vehicle is equipped with the Premium Plus Package that includes the Voice Activated Nav System with Bluetooth and Rear Back-Up Camera. It has adequate trunk space with one touch automatic rear door (very helpful when you're carrying a bunch of groceries and of course it looks cool). You definitely get more value for your dollar with this vehicle than you do the competition.

I couldn't be happier with it. Lots of cabin room, seating 4 or 5 is comfortable. Very good with pick-up, given that the V6 puts out 270 hp, and the RX's competitors are all V8s (easier on the wallet with gas too).
