I've never paid one and have been driving new Lexus vehicles since 1994. But, I purchase my vehicles. Are you purchasing or leasing?

I stopped by my Lexus dealer today and took a look at the 2016 RX. I just don't like the exterior styling ... and the RX seemed bigger than the 3rd gen version; another negative for me. Not a big...

I haven't replaced the key on my 450h, but I have replaced other keys on prior Lexus models. It was a simple, quick process ... usually less than $250.

Ask the dealer to inspect the car and determine if it had been repaired as a starting point. If there is no problem, just ask them if they will align it to your satisfaction. Even if the car had...

I wouldn't waste any money on a built in NAV unit. I have the NAV option on my 450h, but use Google Maps/Nav on my Samsung Note 4 phone for most of my navigation. I just don't trust built in units...
