long time rx owner
Got the new 17 RX and I am very disappointed about some things I was not made aware of before I got it. I have a windows cell phone and it worked great with the 2013 RX I traded in, including ability to get stock quotes, weather info, gas prices, etc. And most importantly, I got texts read to me and could respond to them orally while driving. With the new 2017, I have none of these unless a buy a new Iphone or other "compatible" device. And altho weather info is independent of what device you have, you need to be in an area where certain types of radio stations carry the necessary signal, which I am not. The car drives great, but it seems Lexus should tell buyers their technology has changed on this stuff. I made the logical assumption that my new car would have at least the same, if not better, capabilities my old one did. Now I realize it's a step down unless you have the right cell phone. Ironic that the 13 RX would not accomodate an I phone for texts. Now it appears to require one.
I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: NO
