I owned a Japan built RX and now own a Canadian built RX. I cannot see any obvious difference in quality. Having owned a Tundra built in Indiana, an Avalon built in Kentucky and two Japan built...

How much spent per week is going to depend on the miles driven, the cost of fuel and the mileage of the car. Your post asked about the ES 350 and I can only comment on the hybrid, the ES 300H and...

All I can say about Audi is "once bitten, twice shy". My experience with Audi doesn't detract from their tech, styling or handling. I loved my Audi, and I hated my Audi, but I still owned it for 7...

Interesting observation regarding the tendency of people to buy hybrids rather than lease. The type of drivetrain didn't enter into our decision but I can see how it might be a factor (we are buying...

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...

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...

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...
