"Car has needed only routine maintenance except that the AC compressor was changed at 125K miles. Interior has held up amazingly well - still looks like new. Love this car"

"The best long trip ride I have ever owned. Much better then the Cadillac I owned. No problems, it just runs and runs. Bad weather friend goes in the snow no worries. Caught in flash flood the RX was capable of fording nine inches of rushing water! I drove around lesser autos which failed at the worst moment.I recommend to all that have an interest like mine to drive an RX. A well built dependable auto. Would I buy another RX you ask? YES. The RX retains its value because it is the best of the best. Drive one!"

"One of the best cars I have ever owned. Done all the required maintenance and had zero issues. I have owned nearly 100 new cars and few used ones. This would be at the top of my list for a excellent used car. I have 110,000 miles on it and it makes monthly trip from SC to Fla. 23MPG on highway. I wish the V6 had a little more power but other than that a excellent vehicle. Spark Plugs are expensive to change out 450.00 but car runs like a top. People fall asleep in it all the time. The DVD video system works flawless. Rear seat recline which most cars don't. A great feature is the power lift gate. Love it."

"I bought this vehicle new in 2005 and have only a little over 80,000 miles on it. I intend to drive it until the wheels fall off which I anticipate may be another 20+ years at the mileage I put on. It is an extremely reliable and comfortable vehicle for the price. If one conducts periodic proper maintenance, they will never have any mechanical issues with this vehicle. Gas mileage is well above the mileage predicted on the sticker; I get between 21 to 23 miles per gallon in the city and approximately 28 to 30 miles per gallon on open highway."

2007 Lexus RX350, Tan Leather Interior

"This vehicle has beautiful leather interior, low mileage at 73,000, drives and handles like a dream. I was surprised by the gas mileage: 26-28 mpg on the highway and 21-22 combined city and highway. Holds an amazing amount of cargo especially with the back seats down. Love the power lift gate; opens with the push of a button to load groceries or other cargo. Just a luxurious vehicle."
