This Year's Model Updates:

After a complete redesign last year, the 2011 Lexus RX 350 returns essentially unchanged.

Pros:
  • Premium cabin design and materials, plush ride, composed handling, energetic acceleration, comfortable seating front and rear, top crash test scores, user-friendly multifunction controller.
Cons:
  • No third-seat option, expensive options packages, not as entertaining to drive as sportier rivals.

    Hold great value

  • Feeling of Disappointment. - 2011 Lexus RX 350
    By -

    Having some experience with Toyota (used to work for the company), I'm pretty familiar with their technology and at the same time must say that I'm disapointed. Me and my wife bouhgt the car fully loaded with the tow package and after 1300 miles the transmission went out, wow that was a shock to me. Please don't get me wrong, I still think it is a great car but for over $40K I expect a lot more. Of course it doesn't happen every day with Lexus products but when it does happen to you I'm sure all of us would have doubts. The drive is OK, but if you are for more sporty style of driving go with the German car, mainly Audi Q5 which I drove and it blew me away, it's handling and resposivness.

    This SUV is everything you expect in a Lexus: comfortable, quiet and reliable. A couple of the features I really like are the steering headlights and the ventilated seats. The only real disappointment is the navigation system which only allows voice access when driving, which really limits what you can do with it. For example, you can't get it to look up a POI in a given city, it will only tell you POI's near you.

  • I hope the new ones ride better. - 2011 Lexus RX 350

    I got my RX in Feb this year with 9,000 miles on it. Now I think I know why the original owner traded it. The suspension is way too stiff, and noisy. You feel every bump and the rear suspension lets you know with loud booms. This thing rides like a Mercedes ML. That's not good. Also, with all the bouncing around, the back seat emits all kinds of noise. Keeping it folded down seems to help. I don't want a car so soft it wallows and has tons of body roll, but this is just ridiculous. Other than that, I'm ok with the rest of the car. The leather and other materials feel good. It's fairly quiet. I'm getting 23mpg on premium.

  • Happy as can be! - 2011 Lexus RX 350

    I recently traded my 2008 BMW X5 in for this 2011 Lexus RX350. The main reason I got rid of the BMW was because of the horrible and I mean horrible reliability, and everyone knows if you wanted a reliable luxury car you choose a Lexus. We've had the car now for a couple days and the transition was much easier than expected. The Lexus has many more features than the old BMW and it's MUCH more comfortable, the ride is smooth, the interior is well appointed and the cabin is very quiet when driving. Very happy that we chose to buy the RX350, you won't regret it.

    the 2010 rx is not as driver friendly as the older models. I should have spent a few dollars on my "99 with 150k miles and kept it

  • Dave's Luxury SUV - 2011 Lexus RX 350

    This car rides better than Mercedes, BMW, and Audi SUVs. It has low noise level, and 350 hp engine gives great pick up when entering highways. Best SUV I have ever driven.

  • Disappointing - 2011 Lexus RX 350
    By -

    I had high hopes for this vehicle but sadly it didn't deliver. It's built like a toy. Never again.

  • 6-1/2 years old and zero repairs - 2011 Lexus RX 350
    By -

    No repair of any kind ever needed since I bought this car new in 2011. Just regular maintenance. Had the same story on my previous RX350. Unbeatable reliability. It's no BMW (I have owned a couple of those) but you feel firmly in control in any highway or city situation. Wife and I are older, and we appreciate the ease of getting in and out plus the advantage of sitting higher than much of the traffic. Very comfortable ride and satisfactory all around vehicle for normal driving. Son-in-law has one just like mine, someone pulled onto the highway right in front of him with traffic at 60mph. He swerved to avoid the idiot, got bounced back and forth between an oncoming pickup and another one behind him, rolled 4 times, all 11 airbags deployed and he crawled out of the sunroof with just a sore neck. His car was squashed front and back. Automatic fuel cutoff and doorlocks. That's pretty good safety.
