The vehicle of a lifetime.

This vehicle drives very smoothly. It comes complete with four wheel drive, an interactive screen display connected to the radio, heated seats, and much more. It is very spacious and would be a perfect vehicle for any family that has kids, or multiple persons to transport around. It also has built in surround sound speakers above the dashboard. All in all, this vehicle is very amazing.

- Curtis H

Lexus vehicles maintain their value and are very reliable.

This vehicle has a very comfortable ride. Right now the "Check Engine" light is on due to a fuel efficiency sensor. I have been advised by several mechanics (including one who specializes in Lexus) that the repair is one that I should postpone. The vehicle's current gas mileage is great! I also appreciate that Lexus vehicles come with a full-size spare instead of a donut.

- Iris M

It was a great choice for me - affordable luxury and outstanding reliability.

I love my Lexus for many reasons. It is very comfortable and roomy. The leather seats make it easy to slide into and out of the vehicle. The pick up is great and the fuel economy is good. And best of all, nothing major has ever gone wrong with it. If the RX will be in the service department for any length of time, the dealership provides me with a loaner - a new RX!
