The RX 350 comes with a basic warranty that covers 48 months or 50,000 miles. In addition to the basic warranty, the RX 350 gets a powertrain warranty with coverage for 72 months or 70,000 miles.

IntelliChoice awarded the 2007 Lexus RX SmartChoice Winner for Operating Costs and Repair Costs (both are low compared to other luxury midsize SUVs). Reliability accolades are common for the RX, and for Lexus in general. "The previous generation RX had an excellent repair and reliability record for both the engine and transmission," affirms Kelley Blue Book. Consumer Guide says, "Adding to its Best Buy appeal are Lexus's strong resale values and kid-glove customer care."
