I bought my f sport new in 2013 because it was new that year. But I wouldn't think twice about a CPO lexus given the reliability trends of the RX. I had a trade worth $18k. But I put it into a...

I haven't seen it in person yet, but I must say the Cabernet interior looks very pink to me. From the pics I have seen I would prefer the black interior that I have now. Again, though, I have only...

I don't have the upgraded system in my lexus, actually. I will have to go look at which is in the acura as well. But in general I like the lexus system better. Overall it is clearer with less...

I'd go the porsche macan route- 330+ hp from a turbo v6. Had it been available when I was shopping I would have bought one. Planning for 4 years from now....(sigh)

Wash the car wash hot? A little heat and the sticky stuff that hold them on gets real loose and they come right off. I took off the 350 on my f sport and stuck the f sport badge on the back. To take...

A pretty simple reason really. Those early RXs rode great when you went in a straight line but the ultra soft suspension increased the rollover risk dramatically. You won't find that soft a...

I do agree with you, the RX is performing as it should. And I am not arguing that a better throttle response would make the car faster. I didn't get the RX to go from 0-60 in 5 seconds. But the...

I wholeheartedly (and respectfully) disagree. My honda odyssey was drive by wire and didn't have this lag. A drive by wire system shouldn't make any difference. It's the way it's set up, not an...

My 2013 F sport does the same thing. I am certain (in my mind) that it is a gear selection issue. when I slow down coming up on a stop sign or yield sign but don't totally stop and then push on the...

I see lots of older RXs which says a lot about their longevity, which is part if the reason I went the F sport route rather than the porsche cayenne. The F sport is no porsche but for my purposes it...

I have a 2013 F sport and a 2014 MDX (Advance). The MDX is my wife's car- we got out of a honda odyssey. We got the MDX over the Lexus GX because of the difference in fuel economy. We don't really...

Yep. Exactly what used to really bother me, until I realized that the paddle shifters in the f sport fix this problem nicely. The shift isn't instantaneous, but it is MUCH faster than having to...

I have found the same on my 2013 f sport. I think what is happening is the electronic tranny mapping keeps the car in too high a gear for your given speed. For example if you pull out of a parking...

Go to etrailer.com. They have inexpensive options, installation pictures and tutorials. I got one for my f sport there for under $200 and you can barely see it.

I would get rid of it too. You could go to carmax to see how much they would give you- usually over blue book. But then you miss the tax savings by trading the older car in- if that is how they are...

If that is all you are going to make over the dealer's price, I would trade it in. Since you only pay tax on the purchase price of the new car minus the trade in, you would save over $2000 in tax by...
