I am exactly one week in from trading up to the 300H from a 2010 Prius. As someone already said, the battery is right behind the rear seat on the ES rather than under the rear seat as it is on the...

That certainly makes sense. There is no denying that turning results in thinner rotors which are more likely to develop the problem again. My only personal experience was with the 04 RX and my dealer...

I agree, I am sure brakes are on the checklist for certifying the car. That does seem strange. I didn't even think about that.

I'm not sure demanding new rotors is really necessary. It is quite...

Turning the rotors indeed sounds likely to fix the problem, but I don't buy the explanation of "lot rot" as the suggested cause. A three year old vehicle with 30 K miles isn't the kind of vehicle...

ES 300H Joins our RX family

The RX has a new companion in the garage now. We upgraded our Prius yesterday for a 2015 ES Hybrid. We were looking at the CT and decided that we didn't want a car that we had to wear. You don't get...

Based on my own experience, I'm not sure there is a consistent "policy" or practice. I have driven two different RXs over the past 11 years, all serviced by the only dealer within 350 miles. The only...

Yes, our 2010 Toyota Prius has auto up/down switches for all windows. The previous 2006 did as well. The Prius is available in various model levels and both of ours were the top model numerically so...

Yes, thank you for the detailed comparison. You are always a wealth of information. This gives those of us that might consider a move to the NX a lot to think about. There is much I like about the NX...

Yes, I have only sat in one F Sport but that was my conclusion. The height of the bolstering was enough that egress was a bit awkward. I am 5'8" at 160 pounds and they fit me like a glove, but...

We have a Nebula Gray Pearl RX 350 and love it. I think it looks great on that vehicle, but it is more work than lighter colors - like the Breakwater Blue on my previous 2nd gen RX. I have never...
