I sort of felt the same when we got our RX a year ago, but the more I listen to the ML system, I feel the bass is pretty accurate. It's a natural sound that seems true. If I were to do anything,...

I actually like the look. I think pics 2 & 3 are pretty poor pictures mainly from the low natural lighting. A glossy finish would be a bit better.

I don't like is the chrome "L" accent. Black...

They fixed that in 2013 during a mid cycle refresh. The 2013 (and 2014) is a pretty solid ride. But I agree with you, no way would I touch a 2010-2012.

As for dealer support, that's going to...

Many cars do this. My old Jetta did it. My Altima does this too. I get why it happens but sometimes it's annoying.

At times I miss our old Sienna. The space inside was massive compared to the RX. If you plan on having more kids and keep vehicles a long time, it may make sense to look at a Sienna or similar.

I hope the red one stays as your daily driver. I assume you're still in school (HS or College) and those parking lots can be murder, as you know. I remember your first door ding in the RX. You...

Depending on the options, $37,000 may not be too bad. 11 months ago we were shopping for a 2010 and something CPO with this few miles would have certainly been on the lot for $37K or more if it had...
