Lexus RX owners enjoyed luxury, year-round comfort
Model: 2010 to 2012 Lexus RX 350 / RX 450h
Vehicle Type: Crossover
History/Description: The Lexus RX lineup effectively kicked off the luxury crossover SUV scene some generations ago – and the 2010 to 2012 iteration of the bestseller has now moved into used vehicle territory.
Commonly bought for sensibility, high residual values, safety and a reputation for quality and reliability, the RX offered up both gas-powered (3.5L V6, 275 horsepower) and hybrid (3.5L V6 with Lexus Hybrid Drive, 295 horsepower) variants.
All-wheel drive (AWD) and 6-speed automatic or CVT transmissions were on board.
Feature content in the five-passenger RX included automatic or motorized ‘everything,’ navigation, Mark Levinson audio, a Bluetooth interface, climate-controlled seats and plenty more.
What Owners Like: Overall, it’s a sense of practical luxury, well-appointed cabin, flexibility and overall comfort that get RX owners talking. A quiet ride is reported, along with great handling and traction in snowy weather. Styling and smoothness are also highly rated.
What Owners Dislike: Some owners wish for more at-hand storage, a more detailed and upscale cabin, a third row of seating, and a more modern and easy-to-use navigation system. Some drivers report a rough ride on certain surfaces, especially on models with bigger wheels. Some owners of the hybrid-powered RX wish for less ‘whining’ noises as the electric drive system works away beneath the vehicle in some situations.
Common Issues: Start with a walkaround of your potential used RX candidate, checking the condition of the wheels, checking that both xenon projector headlamps illuminate, and ensuring the front bumper is properly attached at the edges and lines up with the panels adjacent to it.
