Review: Lexus RC 350

Review: Lexus RC 350

As I mentioned in my Portland Dining Month post, Portland Lexus was kind enough to let me test drive a new Lexus RC 350 for a week. They had asked I head to Portland Dining Month events, but since it was dark by the time dinner came, I had another idea. The weather in Portland was gorgeous that week (which helps when you have a moon roof!) so Kristi and I hopped in the Lexus and tried to catch the sunset.

Kristi and I have a love affair with chasing the sun. We both have been known to get up and watch it rise, and stop everything to watch it fall. There is something so calming about watching the day begin and saying goodnight. Those fist moments of light in the day, and those fleeting moments before darkness. One of my favorite places to watch the sunset is the gorge. In the summer, the sun sets right over the Columbia River. It’s stunning.

Back to the Lexus. I have always been a practical car person. I balked at people who spent large amounts of money on nice cars. Well ladies and gentleman…nice cars are NICE. I can see now why people do it. I loved getting in the Lexus. I didn’t even mind sitting in traffic. (thats worth $$)

The Lexus RC 350 came fully equipped. Leather seats, moon roof, heated AND cooled seats, advanced navigation system. The list goes on. If you are interested in learning more about the car or investing in a luxury Lexus- check out the info at the bottom of the post.

Overall, it was such a fun week. I wish I could have kept the car…who knows I might be buying a new Lexus soon!

    I'm so jealous I missed this. That car looks hella swank.

    You took some gorgeous photos of details on the car, you have such a good eye! The color is so fun and sexy too. I'm not sure why I only admire sunrise and sunset while on vacation and don't chase it in normal life mode, I'm taking it for granted and I need to enjoy and appreciate it more often!

    Love the pics, and I am with you about the sun chasing. Someday, I hope one of my friends has a fancy enough car for me to try out cooled seats!

    A car where you don't mind sitting in traffic! Wow. That's it, I need to drive nicer cars.

    This is so awesome! I, like you, am more of a practical car kind of person, especially since I do dumb things like run over curbs – oops! But that car does look real snazzy and might make driving much more enjoyable! 🙂

    Totally agreed on the nicer car being worth it thing. Completely changes the driving experience. I've had my Acura RDX for two years now and still love getting into it every single time (and I don't even like to drive!).
