On a car loan, you should only put down the minimum amount needed to get the lowest interest rate - especially if its 0.9%. Save the rest for a house or something that won't depreciate so easily.

If #4 is true, then does the RX become the sporty, poor man's version of the GX? Definitely has to grow because of the NX, but probably not by a whole lot.

I'm very interested to see what it will...

I wouldn't say the RX350 is necessarily a boring car - rather it feels numb and disconnected from the road. Nonetheless, it still has plenty of tech goodies on board to keep me occupied.

For the US market, that price is definitely way too high - but it looks like you live in Canada so I really can't accurately comment on what it should be selling for.

This could all be solved so easily with an electronic parking brake that takes up the size of a button. Maybe Toyota will catch on to the luxury automakers with the next RX.

Not quite - you've only lost the market of those who want to buy a pre-LCI RX with the exact pre-LCI RX looks. Besides 90% of the market won't even notice a difference. Keep in mind that the majority...

That's kind of a brash comment to make. The guy just wanted to improve the looks of his car - I don't think he was concerned about his car trying to pass itself off as an LCI RX.

I doubt many of us would switch to the NX - Toyota's target market for the NX is clearly aimed at a more sporty crowd with less need for space. However, it fills in the gap they've been missing for...

$38 for an "RX 350" badge?!?! There has to be somewhere online that sells genuine ones for less than that.

You might just consider removing the "R 350" and go for a clean look. I tried to convince my wife to let me do that on her car, but she likes the look with all the badges on. We're taking delivery of...

My bad - for some reason I thought one of those high 30k numbers was the mileage. Figure mid-30's is probably a bit more reasonable then - say $36k ish.
