I have you beat on the mileage Anita. We traded our 9 year old 2nd gen RX in with 27K miles. There was nothing wrong with it, we were just ready for the new style. Now our current RX was two years...

I am not sure about the word "classy" but am still trying to keep an open mind until I see it in person. I do think it would have been interesting to include age in the poll just to see if the...

It got a bath today ... and it really needed it. This is my first black interior and the black is a lot of work. It shows every little thing. The silver exterior is pretty easy to take care -...

I have found the seat heaters to be weak as well. I would call them seat "warmers" instead of seat heaters. :)

They do work, just not very strong.

Not to pull the thread off topic, but the...

I wish I could answer your question but all I can do is speculate. I would doubt it is a dealer added option. It requires a cellular connection from the car (Toyota/Lexus version of on-star). I would...

Agreed, on both counts. I was merely trying to point out that there are numerous things to like about the behavior of a hybrid, beyond focusing only on the fuel savings. The point of my post was to...

Wow! We don't own a Prius. You seem to be confused. I did NOT buy another Prius but rather an ES 300H just like you. :D

I understand. After my experience with the most recent new Lexus vehicle I have had to adjust my expectations as well. I don't think they are particularly better than most other brands, or worse for...

We went from a very base 2004 RX 330 to a mid range 2013 RX 350. Love it. We love so many of the new options (like blind spot monitoring) that we decided to upgrade our daily driver as well.

I have to say I am amused seeing people do the math to "justify" the hybrid. I mean no offense, but there are more reasons to buy a hybrid than simply the gas mileage. Frankly, I can afford the gas...

I'm not fond of the huge grill either. As for the rest of the car, I want to see it in person before I form a final impression. The DustBuster grill doesn't require an in-person viewing though. They...

Typical of the ventilated seats. They help keep you from sticking to them as much, but that's about it. Same discussion on the RX forum. Some people have tried different techniques to force more air...

I suspect if you asked this question in the IS forum, they would argue the IS is sportier. Rear wheel drive with an AWD option. Allegedly better handling, etc. Didn't test drive one as it didn't fit...

Your size may also factor in. The IS has a tighter interior. Those of us that are a few years older often need a bit more room ;) We also transport my in-laws quite often and while the Prius was...

Yes, we have been very happy with our Toyota and Lexus products. Sadly, we have seen the little details get cheaper over the years, but the reliability has continued to be excellent.
