That Lexus should be quiet enough to hear the proverbial pin drop. It's a superior car, I mean in general, not superior to the BMW or M/B but just as high in manufacturing quality control. You sure there wasn't a window open just a hair? Either that or you drove the rare one with a weatherstrip folded in, something like that

or the tires were worn.

I have the 2015 RX 350 - it always sounds like there is a window open, it is loud, bounces like hell when driving 70 mph, and the tires are Michelins...I am horrified beyond belief because I DID NOT test drive the car at 70 mph! Too late now...

Two weeks back I test-drove a new 2015 RX 350 out of the dealership. I was disappointed because the road/wind noise in the cabin was the same as or more than my 2011 RAV4. I decided to wait and test-drive the 2016 model before I buy it.

Just bought a 2015 RX350. I to noticed the loud noise when first accelerating. Very disappointed and already regret buying the Lexus RX 350.

Wished I had the radio off when I road tested this vehicle yesterday and purchased it. Today I drove over to the dealership to ask if someone could test drive again with me to make sure nothing was wrong and he asked what year? I said 2015. He said probably nothing wrong but make appt with service on Monday. Was disappointed that no one would get in the car with me!
