    Great Family Car — Car is well worth the money. With 138,000 miles the only unscheduled maintenance that had to be performed was replacement of the radiator. Not getting the mileage that was posted for the car aside, this SUV has been well worth the cost. I plan on getting at least another 100k on it before I think about getting rid of it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great handling, very comfortable

    Cons: Being a hybrid, I don't get the mileage that I think I should

    Roomy, But.... — Love the space and the handling. Not crazy about the maintenance costs. We've been through a lot already and we haven't even hit 70,000 miles. Seems like the 2006 model has several glitches (dashboard anyone?) that cross over between the Lexus and Toyota brand. Not sure if I'd buy another one.

    Pros: Quiet ride - easy to handle

    Cons: I seem to be in the shop more for repairs than mainentance.

    Good Car, Good Looks, Great Mpg — Great to drive in. The Rx feels like a sedan more than an SUV (Which is a good thing!) easy to move around in traffic. Great fuel economy avg. about 28 Mpg. The rear quarter window noise is my only complain about this car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good overall Mpg, even at 9 years old it still looks modern. Never had to make any repairs to the car, good reliability!

    Cons: The rear quarter window is very noisy on highway speeds

    Lexus Rx400h — Hybrid is more expensive to maintain the Hybrid components. Runs on regular unleaded. average 25 MPG. Body, moldings, buttons etc all hold up excellent. If you don't mind the extra cost to maintain Hybrid systems than its a spectacular car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Large cargo area, beautiful, holds up well. Good gas mileage

    Cons: Hybrid is VERY expensive to maintain. Every time you take it in its 10X more expensive than gas because "It's a Hybrid"

    Affordable, Reliable, Green Luxury — The light tan interior is better than black with kids but the floormats were so quick to stain that I had to invest in Lexus all-weather mats after one season. The all-weather mats are amazing, though. Love the heated front seats in the winter and, especially, the heated sideview mirrors (takes the cursing out of snow and slush obscuring them in every snowstorm).

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Has been the most fantastic car for the family. Totally reliable. Handles snow and rain without batting an eye. Is ridiculously comfortable and configurable. Beats the pants off all competitors in fuel economy.

    Cons: Had to replace the OEM tires after one season. Upgraded to great tires that handle the snow and rain with much more grip.

    Perennial Lexus Quality, And Reliability! — This vehicle is designed very well-mine has the Levinson sound system-a must! The navigation is easy to use, and the rest of the controls are arranged nicely.....My Dad, who does not walk well can get himself into this vehicle too! It will accomodate children, as well as everything from the store... If you are a little careful, you can get very good mileage-use premium fuel though....

    Pros: I'm a Ph.D.,but it doesn't take one to realize that this car has great value...It's a hybird, but don't expect super high  mpg....I get 26 hwy and 32 city...That is very good, however, considering it is a 2 1/4 ton vehicle!....In addition, it handles great for a big car, is very quiet, and is actually faster off the line than its non-hybrid counterpart!
    The fit and finish is also excellent. I have almost 100k on this is vehicle and it's still
    tight, smooth, quiet and completely reliable....What's not to love?

    Cons: Don't expect a sports car-but you get everything else!

    Very, Very Comfortable Car. Practically A Living Room On Wheels. —

    Performance: The RX Hybrid accelerates with authority. While at times the hybrid power train takes a moment to respond, occupants are firmly shoved into their seat backs whenever the pedal is mashed. Brakes are a little spongy, but not bad at all for a hybrid, and stopping distance is well above average. It IS a Lexus, after all, and it wasn't designed to corner quickly - and corner quickly it does not. The luxury-tuned suspension makes for body lean through corners, no matter the speed. The ride is supremely comfortable, though. Build Quality: Being a Lexus, materials and general quality is top-notch throughout. Everything is tightly screwed together and in great working order, even 71K miles after it rolled off the line. Appearance: Lexus did an admirable job styling the RX. It has a sort of elegant demeanor, and elements of its design do a lot to hide its heft. At first glance, it appears smaller than it actually is. The interior is very nicely done as well, with generous applications of wood trim throughout, and a modern-looking center stack. Cost of Ownership: At the dealership you'll be presented with eye- popping bills whenever the car is brought in for service. Your average oil change, tire rotation, brake inspection, etc. can run a whopping $150. The service level is fantastic though - you certainly do get what you pay for. Fun Factor: Well, we're talking about a midsize luxury crossover here, so fun is relative. Personally, I like driving the RX, but I wouldn't call it "fun". "Pleasant," I think, would do it justice.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Cozy ride, comfy seats, and copious power. Excellent fuel economy.

    Cons: Sloppy cornering

    Great Commuter And Family Car. — Car has alot of torque off of the line. We have owned it for over 6 years now and it has a little over 70,000 miles. It is a great car to own. Now with a child and two labradors we usually travel in the larger car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fuel efficiency for the power the car has!

    Cons: The car eats tires.
