Why Not the 2009 Lexus RX?

Price or payments

more than $12000 more than the Murano with all the same bells and whistles

Handling

Great on the highway, but change lanes slowly going 65mph and you feel enormous body lean. Go around a turn at a stop light, and you feel the same thing. Suspension great for highway driving, but feels way to mushy

Fuel economy

about 5mpg less given same driving habits

Driving position & visibility

Again, much less of sports sedan feel in the RX. May not be a big deal to some, but I wanted the feel of driving in the car, not on it.

This review was originally a two-car comparison review. Read the other half here.
