'16 = 2016, not 16". The LE and XLE previously had 17" wheels stock (with 18" on the Limited) so I am very familiar with the ride. It is quite jarring for a family type hauler. Our old 09' RAV4 model...

If you're fine with a "non-luxury" RX, then test the Highlander in XLE or Limited grade. It is even larger and can seat 8. Personally, when I drove the RDX and RX back to back recently, I felt the...

Btw> unless you go for a 98+ sc400, you should look at SC300s too. Very similar power and more readiky available. You SHOULD NOT be paying $6k fir a 150k miles pre-98 SC400 ever!
