Anita, I've been the highest-mileage RX350 for awhile now. When I put the second set of tires on at 42k miles, I was one of the first to hit that figure. And that was 2.5 years ago. :D Now on the...

Ask them to replace the Michelins with Bridgestones. If they're a good dealership, they should be willing to do so (even if they charge you a little bit) assuming this was a CPO car.

When I was looking, I drove 18 cars/CUVs/SUVs. That included the Audi Q5/Q7 and BMW X5 (too harsh), and the Acura MDX/RDX (MDX I hated the interior, felt too enclosed, RDX too small).

I refused to...

GRMIck, Anita agrees that the Scorpions have a stiff ride.

I just put on Nitto CUV Crossteks. For the 60K miles before that, I ran the Yokohama Parada Spec-X tires in 19" - and both of those tires ride more softly than the Michelins.

Michelins ride hard. Check the tire pressure.

Also, the rear shocks are known to be an issue on some of the early 3rd Gen. Get them checked.
