Good car, but service falls short of what you would expect in a luxury car
I bought a top of the range Lexus NX hybrid from Lexus of Brighton. The car drives well and has good features. However the touch pad is quite difficult to use and frustrating. The GPS maps were quite out of date when the car was purchased and I was told I had to pay $300 to update it. Very disappointing as you would expect a luxury car to have up to date maps.
So far so good!
Love my nx200t! The seats are soft and comfortable, engine has sufficient power and it is smooth and quiet when driving. My only concerns are the touch pad control is not very user-friendly and the power tail gate is a bit slow and does not have pressure sensor to stop it when obstructed.
Love my NX! Best urban SUV on the road!
After having driven a few large Aussie-made sedans for over 10 years, I was so excited to finally purchase my new NX200T in graphite black! I had always wanted a sporty, funky, zippy SUV but there was nothing in the market that really stood out for me. The Range Rover Evoque came close but after hearing unreliability issues I decided this wasn't an option for me. Same goes with Jeeps which I also like the look of. All in all, I am so glad I purchased the NX. It has an amazingly smooth and comfortable ride. And let's be honest, Lexus have always...made the best car seats! Sit in a 15 year old Lexus and you'll see just how great the seats hold up over the years and how comfortable they are. I was concerned with moving away from a conventional V6 and to a 2.0 litre turbo, but I really do find that the NX has more than enough power in all situations. Overtaking on the freeway is super easy and when the turbo kicks in you really get pushed back into your seat. Other things I like about the car, is the way the steering wheel moves closer to your body when you start the car for driving and then moves away from you when you turn off the car so you can get out easier (that's my justification anyway)... the sound system is crystal clear and makes any song sound great. Sat Nav is easy to use. The only negative about the car would be the boot space. It is a fairly high boot with not a lot of room to play with. As I have no kids and prams to carry or sports gear, it's not really an issue and I tend to fold down the rear seats when buying bulkier items but I can see how this might frustrate others who have gear to carry. If you're coming from a Corolla, Astra, Mazda3 hatch or the likes then the boot space in the NX is still an improvement. I would say the NX is best for singles or couples who want a relatively economical, compact & sporty SUV which doesn't take up too much space in a parking lot yet still commands the road! Would recommend over and over again.

Typical Lexus Quality
We have just traded our 2010 RX350 Sports Luxury for a new NX200t Sports Luxury. We are completely satisfied with our new car. The build quality is the best you will find and the customer service is exceptional. I was told by a Lexus salesman 10yrs ago that "now that you have a Lexus, nothing else will compare". At the time I thought that this was just sales hype, but over the years we have owned other makes and yet we still go back to Lexus, due to the customer service and build quality. As for our new car, it is amazing. It is very economical, quiet, full of the latest tech features and the turbo 2.0 Litre is a real gem. The interior is comfortable and quite spacious for it's size.
Questions & Answers
How much should I pay for Lexus nx f sports 2wd
Looking at either a rx 350, (2013/14 model) or nx 2.0 litre T. Would use it for general around town driving, as well as trips fron Victoria to Queensland towing a small, light boat (maybe 400kgs trailer & boat). Probably veering towards the rx, but like the look of the nx. Can't afford the current shape rx, but would love to get 1. Any opinions?
I tow a runabout and box trailer with two trail bikes with no problems.
