Effortless Driving — Lexus provides reliable transportation in a luxury vehicle. That is why I now own my third Lexus. This time I chose an RX350 SUV to accommodate my grandchildren otherwise I would still be driving this car. I am expecting the same satisfaction with this vehicle as I have experienced in the past. Wonderful!

Luxury, Reliable — These engineers thought of everything. Didn't miss a trick. Rides like a dream. Great sound system. Super comfortable. Good GPS. Reliable. What's not to like? Oh, one minor thing... it's a bit underpowered. But then it's a luxury car and 0-60 is irrelevant. Oh and the local Lexus dealer is a bit of a rip off when it comes to service.

A Great, Dependable Automobile — D for dependability, You can't even hear the engine it's so quiet. Good acceleration. Elegant interior, great radio and cd...5 years, nearly perfect performance. Can't ask for more. Don't drive it in snow,though. I wish someone would figure out a way to quickly unfog rear windows in rain and snow in sedans.

Pros

Lexus rides like a dream.
So much luxury in this sleek & stylish sedan.
Lexus has the coldest AC, bar none....that matters in the deep south!
Great leg room.
Spacious trunk area, with pass thru from back seat.

Cons

Seating for 5.

Stylish, Luxurious, & Exciting To Drive. — I love this car. The only reason I've decided to sell, is to upgrade to a full-size SUV. Lexus is such a dependable line of luxury vehicles. This car has never been in the shop, save for routine maintenance (oil changes, brake pads, etc.). Gas mileage is fantastic. I have never been disappointed with my choice.

Lexus Great Cars — I LOVED MY LEXUS!!!!! The only reason I got rid of this vehicle was due to my previous employment closed the doors. You were riding on a cloud in this vehicle!!! Everyone needs to own a Lexus in their lifetime. I suggest all my friends get one if they can afford it.

Pros

Pillowy ride, virtually no road noise, smooth acceleration, rev-happy V6.

Cons

Gas pedal too tight.

Great Car — Great performance. Lexus quality Gorgeous don't know about cost of ownership; it's my sister's Fun to drive, i guess. The only thing I don't like about this car is: the gas pedal is too tight. You have to really press down on the gas to make the car go.

Pros

Good gas mileage for a luxury car. Nice gripping tires but will wear out
after 30k miles or so.

Cons

HORRIBLE alternator and ugly front end.

95

Not Bad. — Bought it new and the problems were a broken sunshade button and 3-4 dead batteries. Only had to go through a couple oil changes. Handles well. Don't charge anything bigger than a laptop in this car, or your battery will be DEAD. The alternator SUCKS and you have to keep the engine on for HOURS after you jump-start it.

Pros

The comfort level of the interior. It's beautiful. Nice interior room. Pretty good power. Fuel economy is very nice. Nice car to take on the road for power and comfort.

Cons

Maintenance cost so much on this car. For 30,60,90k services about $1300-1700. Tune up (though supposed to be 80k because of the iridium spark plugs) cost about $800.

I Love The Car, It's The Maintenance That I Did Not Like — The car is very cool. Very quiet and it does not accelerate like a BMW but when it gets up to speed it's fast. Nice room and the leather if taken care of is very nice. Nice sound system with the 6 cd changer. The car is wonderful. It's just the maintenance cost of the vehicle that is a hardship. That's luxury for you. LOL
