Lots of bells & whistles though. Very noisy on the freeway too, which is a big negative for me.

We have a '08 GX470, which is a totally different vehicle.
I Would like to test drive one

If you want luxury then buy it but it will turn your driving soul off for good. These are not fuel efficient neither (save the hybrid) since they ask for Premium (2012+ can take regular).

My sister has a 2005 RX330 with 120k miles now and it is still as smooth and quiet as new. My spouse has 2010 RX350 and I used to have a 2010 RX450h. My other sis has a 2001 RX300 with 170k miles now and still driving good (knock on woods). So, I know the RX series very well.

So my thought - DON'T DO IT.......


People, please lay off the comments of guys who drive Lexus RX are gay. This same goes for "guys who drive the Slades are either pimps or gangsters". No judgmental please.
So true, no judgemental please

You are in the French Polynesia? No wonder the milage is so low for a nearly 10 year-old vehicle - only so far you can drive on an island.

It would b hard to go to a Lexus rx after a tacoma. I know it would leave me wanting more that I couldn't get.

Turn in your man card for even thinking about this trade....
Pros: Smooth driving in the RX
Cons: you look like a huge pussy and you'd be driving a "bitch-mobile"

If that doesn't bother you then go for it! Otherwise stick with your truck and not a modern mini-van

Nothing wrong with lexus, or their SUV's if it suits your lifestyle. It sounds like this one doesn't, since it's a pathetic excuse for a vehicle (2WD) so just hold out for a real one.

I had an Xterra for a few years and really missed the truck bed, but thats just me.
