I tow occasionally, and I had mine done at 92k. My car now has nearly 150k on it, so I think 50k is early, unless you do a lot of towing.

FYI, I paid nearly $800 for that service.

My 350 is doing well enough. Things I've noticed/done as the mileage creeps higher:

So, nearly two years later, and I have 141,200 miles on my RX350. It's 5 years, 5 months old. So 141,200/65 = 2172 miles per month.

Do I still have the high mileage award?

:D

Anyone Negotiated Yearlong Sirius XM Rate recently?

So, my auto-bill CCd was compromised, and I need to call Sirius to give them the new number. I might as well negotiate the annual fee, rather than the monthly auto-pay.

As Anita said, the Sport package came with 19" wheels - makes for great cornering, but a harsher ride.

Are you planning on replacing the existing 19" wheels with 18" wheels? Or did the first owner...

When I was looking, I drove 18 cars/CUVs/SUVs. That included the Audi Q5/Q7 and BMW X5 (too harsh), and the Acura MDX/RDX (MDX I hated the interior, felt too enclosed, RDX too small).
