Dependable and reliable vehicle to drive.

Always reliable; I have never had even the slightest of concern or issue. Safe to drive in every way. The Lexus rx 350 has always been a comfortable vehicle. This vehicle has always been good in the snow, when we lived in Illinois. The only thing we ever had to change on the vehicle in all the years we have owned it is tires and oil. .

- Nice M

Comfortable, smooth, and quiet ride.

My Lexus has never had any kind of mechanical problems. It always works exactly how I need it to. The seats, space, lighting and controls are all comfortable and intuitive. I love the space heater and GPS. The heater and ac always work quickly and effectively no matter the weather. It is a smooth and quiet drive.

- Rachel M

This is a safeworthy car with appropriate safety belts. Crashworthy vehicle.

I love the reliability of my 12 year old Lexus RX 330 which was purchased new. Other than routine maintenance & new tires every few years, it has suffered no problems. It is sturdy and smooth with a popular body style that has changed little through the years. Takes regular gasoline and gets good mileage.

- Paula C
