This is my 3rd RX. I bought the very first generation RX in 1999 but had a lot of problems so I sold it after 2 years. I traded it in for an ES. The ES was a great car but terrrible for my back. Since I suffer from chronic back pain, it was difficult to get in and out of. I traded the ES for a RX 400h hybrid. The gas mileage was not that great for a hybrid 18/city and 24/hwy. I traded that one in for a Honda CRV but really missed the luxury. So now, back to the 2008 RX350. I've had it now for about a month. It really is an amazing car. Drives extremely well on freeways. Really hugs the road and doesn't sway like the ES did. (I thought it was me but now realize it was characteristic of the ES) Gas mileage is great for an SUV. I've been averaging 19/city and 25/hwy. The only thing I don't like about the new RX is that it's pretty much outdated. I'm sure the new ones will have all the goodies that I like. I miss the push button start, keyless entry, power folding mirrors and bumper sensors. I recently drove the new Infiniti EX35 and it was loaded with all those great features and more but it was not a comfortable car. Very tight inside, no rear seat legroom and the suspension was a bit too sporty for me. I love my RX but am anxious to see what the new ones will have. Dealers know that this version of RX is about over and are anxious to unload. I got mine fully loaded with NAV for $38,800 OTD. Glendale Lexus. Sticker/MSRP was $44,371 but I did visit 3 Lexus dealers to get the best deal possible. That is truly the key.
