I believe all 3rd gen are front to rear, same side only. For my 2004, I did five tire rotation as the spare was a full size. See manual.

Avoid any RX with the air suspension. PITA and expensive to maintain. Other than that, it would be usual research and checks on any used car.

The biggest difference between my previous 2004 RX and the 2011 is the shape of the headrest with the 2011 pushing my head forward, too much to my liking. And I think the headrest shape affected how...

Dealer may not CPO high mileage. Get records and test drive. Bring to another mechanic if you wish. I'd buy a high mileage one owner car versus a high mileage loaner car.

I usually like to lubricate the springs and hinges part with wd40 or white lubricate to ensure that whole unit is flexible and then bend in and out.

Apparently better to buy in the winter as dealers get fewer buyers. The only feature that you may not be able to test is the aircon unless temp is above freezing. But that should be covered by the...

Only time I use premium is when I'm in the US.:-)

The main reason that I would consistently use premium is to avoid ethanol and the rusting that it can cause on the emission components.

I have much more confidence on the 2011 than on our previous 2004 Sport package with the air suspension. That one was "scary" from a maintenance perspective.
