Amazing perfect car never one problem
I have been buying cars since 1960. This Lexus 350 purchased in 2007 is without doubt the best car I have ever owned and I have owned 2 new Mercedes, which I will not even comment on. The Volvo’s were good but the service, as was the Renault, poor. Lexus service is fantastic; not expensive, and very fair. They replaced, after 10 years, a cracked dashboard free of charge and loaned me a car whilst replacing. Anyone who buys a car other than a Lexus, is in my opinion making the wrong decision. I look back on the British cars, including a 1993 Landrover Discovery, as a distant nightmare.

Brilliant car, excellent upgrade from 2008 RX400h
My father purchased this 2016 RX450h from Lexus of Sutherland in late 2017 as a demo vehicle upgrading from a 2008 RX400h with over 200,000 km's on the clock. Both him & i couldn't be happier with this car, it is absolutely beautiful, especially in the Sonic Titanium colour.
The vehicle was purchased with 9,500 km's on the clock & is currently sitting at 55,000 km's. In the close to two years that we have owned the vehicle, no issues have arose, servicing has been free (3 years free servicing came with the purchase) & fuel economy has been out...standing, 6.9L/100km for a large SUV is excellent! The 3.5L V6 mated to the hybrid system is great! Extremely smooth switch from electric to petrol (you cant even feel it), the vehicle takes off at the lights very quickly and leaves my Mum's C200 Bluetec left behind. Fuel economy is great as mentioned above. The vehicle is very smooth to drive soaking up the harsh Aussie roads beautifully. Comfort is great thanks partly to the soft heated & cooled leather seats but also to the well tuned factory suspension. The infotainment system as much as the car enthusiasts bag it out actually is pretty good once you get to know it after a few days, the remote touch controller can have its sensitivity turned down which makes a huge difference in day-to-day operation. The only small annoyance is that it doesn't have Android Auto but that may be coming by the end of the year.
ML320CDI vs RX450H - User review
Switched recently from my ML320CDI to the RX450H as an everyday car. Wanted to try a hybrid (not ready for an all-electric car).
Pros: easy to drive, much more bells and whistles for the same price bracket - keyless entry, auto mirror tilts, cruise control with auto distance braking, blind spot sensors, reverse cam, kerbside cam, bluetooth phone connectivity, etc; great fuel economy; silent when on idle; luxurious interior; smooth and quiet drive; more 'elegant' than the ML. Very smooth 'switch' from Electric mode to Petrol mode - no jerks or ...cut-outs in the engine. Superior Hybrid technology. Cons: less spacious boot space and interior (car is smaller than the ML), no proper place to set up your mobile phone; troublesome to access phone charger (located inside console box - have to remove the box to access the connection points); bluetooth feature only for phone calls, not for music (direct 3.5 jack via the aux is required); large turning radius required (more difficult to park and make sharp turns); sound system is not great (quite flat); headrest not ergonomic (maybe it's built for much taller frames), Gear system not as convenient as the ML (hand gear near the steering), troublesome to use the mouse to switch between controls (music). Overall, great car, I also hear it is very reliable. I would probably have been less critical if I wasn't comparing it to the ML (having gotten used to that after 4 years). It's definitely a 'classier' car, feels less 'solid' than the ML despite the RX having more airbags and a higher ANCAP rating. Does not feel as 'powerful' as expected of a 4WD, rides more like a Sedan. Car sits lower than the ML, and you feel more of a thump going over humps if you didn't slow down enough.. Still ... I would recommend it highly.

Safe, quiet and extremely smooth car
I went to some car dealers to find a good car for family, last week I came to Sydney City Lexus and Rae Kenedy, the car dealer introduced me some Lexus models : RX350, RX270, NX300 and explained very clearly each model and options. At the end, we selected RX270, we took a drive around Sydney, the car has the new technology : Smart start button, big navigation screen, sunroof etc.. The car run extremely smooth, quiet and safe. All members of my family are very happy, I will introduce Rae and Sydney City Lexus to all of my friends.
Purchased in March 2019 for $31,500.00.

Rodent problem, stay away!
I purchased the Lexus brand new at Lexus Monterey Peninsula. After the last two services, it is costing us $200 and now recently the 2nd service $1200 because of rodent getting into the air ventilation system. The first incident, they found rodent feces in the air ventilation system which blows into the car. I have three young kids and it’s a truly safety issue on my end. The service technician admitted that this often happened. I reported the problem with Lexus and nothing has been done. It did happen again on my second service which is now co...sting me $1200 “15k service” as the rodent damaged the air mode outer door in the air ventilation system. I contacted Lexus again and they won’t cover anything even though my car still under the bumper to bumper warranty and I purchased an additional maintenance plan to avoid any fees for the next 5 years. I told them, I had a Honda Odyssey and currently a Ford f150 without any rodent issue. Lexus truly does not care about issues/complaint knowing that it could be a safety concern. My only option was to file a Lemon Law, which I did.

The car I always wanted....
In 2008 I was fortunate enough to drive a brand new Lexus RX 350 to Sydney and back. All I remember was that it was the best car I had driven. 10 years later, I bought a one owner 2008 Lexus RX 350 with 200,000kms + It has full service history and all I can say it is a great car to drive. We have taken this car around Regional Victoria and beyond and this car is a smooth driving car that is comfortable to drive.
Servicing is every 10000kms / 6 months and so far no issues. Slight rattle sometimes on start up (We have been told this is the VVT...engine and just the oil lubricating. Some reviews have had this fixed under warranty) I have a 200,000+ km car and our mechanic doesn’t see any problem. The car is well serviced and looked after The Good: Amazing road manners Leather heated front seats Sunroof Back seats that slide back/forward & recline a little. Plenty of space
Love that its a hybrid
This is my husband's car. He drives it daily commuting to and from work. I have only driven it a handful of times.
Nice smooth ride. Love that it's a hybrid although I am waiting for a full electric car to be affordable. Parking sensor work great - love that you can have a birds eye 360 view of the car while parking! Love the built in, retractable sunshades at back seat windows for kids.
Lexus has great customer service as always that's why we continue to purchase cars with them.

RX450H Hybrid - wow what a vehicle
This is used as a daily driver, around the city.
I have not seen a car so advanced for its time, the specifications and power are nearly unmatched.
Lets start with the hyrid side, it has 3 motors in the car, 1 petrol, 1 for the front wheels and 1 for the back. This just self manages what engine works at what time depending upon fuel efficiency or power (this actually has more power then a V8 engine at 295 horse power), however on average it runs around the city on 6-8 litres per 100kms.
Now why this vehicle, its an All wheel drive, continuou...
Amazing family car
I use my RX350 daily for all family matters from transporting my baby to grocery shopping to going on road trips etc. Love the drive and all the cool features such as opening the boot by just a touch of your elbow.. this is a great feature I use always as most of the time I have baby on one hand and shopping bags on the other and i don’t have to keep the bags on the ground to open the boot.. just touch the Lexus logo on the boot with your elbow and the boot opens!

Overly dissatisfied with this car
I bought one RX 350 f sport based on all the good things I had heard about Lexus, was nice on test drive. Then...
Rear door rubbers fell off.
Sunroof rubbers fell off.
Car was ok to drive and pleasant
The infotainment system was garbage....half the time if I tried to make a call... like “call dave v.” The infotainment wouldn’t do it... it almost felt like it did not understand English. horrible...
Seats would feel hard and not comfy after a while....
Got rid of mine after 21000 kms
Would never buy a Lexus again.
Great family car
We got this a few years ago when our old car packed in. Haven't looked back apart from we had a small ding that cost about double to fix because of the parts are slightly more expensive to get hold of than the car we had before but other than that it drives very well
Perfect Reliable Vehicle
Very reliable, quiet and good looking vehicle, we are very happy with our 2010 Lexus RX 450H hybrid model, its great on fuel about 9l/100km city driving and about 7l/100km on highways. Comfort wise its great seats are soft but not too soft, you can sit for hours without feeling anything. i would recommend this car to anyone.
Best car I've ever driven!
Our family Lexus RX has done over 150 thousand ks and only needed to be services a few times every 40-40k. Loads of room and the kids in the back have loads of space too. Fual traveling long distance has been really good too and great for long family holidays
Best car I have owned
This Lexus would be the best car I have owned ever.
We do a lot of driving with the business and we’ve done almost 100,000kms and the car still drives like new.
The service team at Brighton Lexus in Melbourne are also one of the best sales and after sales teams. We got a great deal on the best car.
So smooth the ride. Amazing to park and it fits so much in that boot!!
Great SUV but wish it had Apple Carplay and Andoid Auto!
Lexus knows how to make a reliable vehicle. I own a 2017 Lexus RX350 F Sport in Atomic Silver + Red interior and all the bells and whistles. This is my first Lexus and I like it just as much as my other SUVs: BMW X5 and Mercedes ML 350.
- Looks. Very subjective, as I know a lot of people hate the front grille design language Lexus has been using as of recent. I personally love it. Looks very different and polarizing in a good way to me. Stands out in comparison to the rest of the competition. Plus, I think it looks amazing in Atomic S...
Perfect family car
Chose Lexus but not other German brands because of the reliability. Lexus doesn't require high cost servicing in the future and they have very good 2nd hand value.
The new 2.0 turbo in the Lexus provides enough power but also good fuel efficiency. I mainly drive in the city with lots of traffic jam during the peak hours. I am achieving 11L/100km in average. Pretty good for a 2 tonne SUV.
Great car for family
Bought a 2015 Lexus RX450H in 2016, our family loves the car as it's roomy but not too big to drive daily. Also, quite economy to run for a big car (around 8-9Lt/100). My wife's old car is 2011 Kia Sportage Platinum and with the engine of 2.4Lt and smaller car, her fuel consumption was nearly 20Lt/100 due to short run and start stop.
great car for family
this is the first lexus car that i got. for RX 200t, it's not powerful enough compares to RX 350.
there are so much techs on this car, when you enter the car, the driver seat would move back for you automatically for driver to get in easily.
the space for the car is enough for a small family.
Reliable and comfortable 5 seater family SUV
We have owned RX350 series SUVs for the past 11 years and upgraded to the next model in 2012 and then again in 2015. In all the years of ownership we have not had a single mechanical issue, just a battery that needed replacing (and was replaced under Lexus 3 year battery cover) and rubber boot opening cover ($50 fix completed by dealer at no cost, glue came off due to living in extreme Darwin heat and humidity for 2 years).
Love my car
what an luxury drive, love to drive and the navigation system. love the leather seats and how good they warming in winder. and always remember to service from lexus it may cost you bit more, but you will be treated as a god by lexus.. and you will get a good loan car

Questions & Answers
I had bought a Lexus 2004 RX 330 just yesterday and would like to know if the running/ Service costs in this car are expensive. Is the boot expensive to fix as the door does not close correctly after pressing the button from the back
I would like to hear an honest opinion on the Lexus RX (2007-2010) as I am looking to buy one. After my last car, BMW X5, had problem upon problem I am looking for as much information on the RX's as I possibly can so I do not make the same mistake.
The body Lexus RX is bigger . I feel relax at the seats, the engine is very good and the car run smoothly. we do the car service once a year, RX350 is good as same as RX270.
