EDITOR'S NOTEBOOK: 2008 Lexus RX350, Day 2
Read Rusty Blackwell’s comments on driving the 2008 Lexus RX350.
The RX isn’t for me, either. The brakes, in all-too-typical Lexus fashion, are very touchy. I’d much rather have real HVAC dials, instead of the touchscreen fan controls. The old design inside and out is uninspiring to me (although I do like the taillights, even though they, too, are dated). On the plus side, the RX350 is surprisingly quick and has plenty of passing power. The handling isn’t sporty at all, but the ride is very comfortable, and the hot, hot heated seats are great on winter mornings.
