Hello,

Default New to Lexus

Just took delivery yesterday - Flint Mica - black w/Preferred Package Plus and 18" wheels. Traded 2004 X5 about to go out of warranty. RX350 handles a little better than I anticipated but not as crisp as X5. Would like sport seats. Overall, though, pretty neat car (the RX). Compares pretty close in size to X5. Was time to try something different and I don't think I'll have any regrets. Plus, wife will really get the RX , anyway.

Got my crystal white/beige RX-350 at the end of June with premium plus package, navigation, Billet chrome grill, chrome wheels and Sirius ...... dealer changed to XM since Sirius was discontinued! After 600 miles my mileage for mixed driving is 19 mpg. I replaced a 2005 black Toyota Avalon which replaced a white 2004 Infiniti FX-45 ........ missed having an SUV. I feel that the RX is a little more nimble than the FX which felt "heavy" driving in the city. I test drove RX-300, 330, 400h in the past . The bigger engine in the RX-350 made the difference for me. I am happy with the RX but miss the keyless doors and start I had in the Avalon and the FX-45. I use MP3 discs and a cassett adapter for my IPod.

Hi!
Hubby has nicknamed the RX "chameleon" because the bamboo pearl color changes constantly depending on the light. It looks silver, beige, gold, white or green - the only color it didn't look is blue but maybe we haven't seen that light yet.

The GX is nicknamed "GarageMaster" which if you look at the picture above you can figure out

Default Traded 2005 RX330 for 2007 RX350

Just traded my wife's 2005 RX for the new RX350. The 2005 had 19,500 miles on it. We upgraded to get the more powerful engine to pull our pop-up camper, and to upgrade to NAV/Bluetooth. Bought a Bamboo Pearl model that was on the lot.

The new 3.5 is a much smoother and more powerful engine, and according to the sticker it gets better gas mileage than the 3.3. The 3.3 drive train wasn't very responsive and the tranny seemed to be hunting a lot for the proper gear. When we picked it up Monday night, my wife just said "Wow" when she hit the gas to pull out of the Lexus dealer.

We got a decent deal from Lexus of Northborough where we bought the 2005 also. The trade in plus $10.5K to upgrade to the RX350 with NAV/Bluetooth.

I wish the best of luck to everyone else who just purchased a new RX350. Looks like it's a winner so far.

Thanks! Any pics would be great too
We have a 2007 RX 350 white with beige interior. It is the third Lexus purchased in last few months. We also have a 2006 GX 470 and a ES 350. Both great cars.

We previously had a 2006 RX 400h which had problems climbing the 3 mile incline from the main road to our mountain home. The 350 displays more torgue on this climb as does the GX 470.

It has the premium package. I did not do nav as we had it on the 400h and did not like it. It tracked main highways pretty good but not back roads which we take from FL to NC. It drove is more crazy with its wrong information so I went back simple. I also enjoy the wood sterring wheel which we have had on all our Lexus except the premium 400h which I do not understand.
We love our new 2007 RX 350 and 2007 ES 350. Great engines and Lexus quite.

Got my RX350 here in Australia a few weeks ago.. Got it in Granite, with the Sports Luxury Pack that includes the Sat Nav, Mark Levinson Audio and Rear View Camera.

Just tested the Nav Overide "feature" and works fine on our version of the Nav system.

I'm going to be investigating putting a computer into my RX350 and connecting it up to the Nav screen and Audio input. Would love to have a 80Gb HD full of MP3 for long trips

Cheers,

Normski

Greets! 1st post and all...:-)

Just picked up (Wed 8/9) our silver/grey '07 RX350. Premium plus pacakage and the *sigh* bling chrome rims. :-)

It's primarliy the wifes....she's coming out of an '03 Lincoln Aviator. Now THERE was a mistake. Live and learn.

No other comments from me yet....still reading and "learning the ropes". Y'all don't seem as brutal as the guys on some of the other forums I read.
