New member to the forum.

Just wondering if there's any current owners of the RC350 and what's your feedback.

:D

Well, not being an actual owner, I'm sure there are more qualified members on here that could give you some input. Anyhow, my dad picked up a 2015 RC350 F a couple of weeks ago, and I got to put about 100 miles on it myself last week.

Mostly doing mountain roads, sadly I never took it out of 'Normal' driving mode, but it handled quite nicely; had plenty of power for my tastes. The most impressive thing to me was that it handles like a sports car but the ride is like a luxury car. I also couldn't help but notice all throttle and brake inputs were gradual not jerky, a very refined automobile.

How does your dad like the car as of now?

That's nice to hear that it handles the mountain roads nicely.

Thanks @DCRH !

Greatly appreciate it! :)

Just wondering how the drive is, like is it smooth.

How the gas mileage is on the car.

Is the interior spacious, mainly the rear seats.

Any issues that you may have had with the car itself.

I live in the Rockies at 9430' and drive this car on curvy mountain roads, in the snow and on the freeway to Boulder. I got AWD and all the options. I put the car into sport mode for the curves and love the stiffer handling. It takes curves like a dream and it handles like a luxury car on the freeway with a very smooth drive. I average 24.4 MPG which includes around town and freeway. This is a two seater basically and the back seats are tight. No issues with the car and I love it.

Thanks @Lady in Red! for the review :)

As much as I don't like the tight space in the rear, I barely have rear seat passengers anyways.

That's quick impressive how the car handles the rockies and the different weather conditions in the AWD.

Definitely thinking of getting the AWD.

Love the fact that it's 2 in 1. Sport and Luxury ride :D

How long have you had yours for? or looking to upgrade?

Bought it just before Thanksgiving 2015 in WA and drive it back to CO. The car handled the cross country trip through all kinds of weather and snow in the Rockies. I have since bought snow tires and coupled with the AWD I can go anywhere and have used the car all winter up here. Not thinking of upgrading as the RC F does not come in AWD and this is a must for me. I drove a lot of other coupes before buying the RC 350 F Sport but nothing compared to the power, luxury ride and Lexus top consumer ratings.

No Regrets!

I have had mine for just under a year. The AWD is a must in Canada. It is a great car and handles perfectly in winter even without winter tires. The rear seat is just for the briefcase and nothing more. The front cabin is very spacious and very comfortable. The fuel economy sucks but who cares! Quite smooth but wouldn't want to take it on a long trip that is for sure. Enjoy!

That's great to hear! Thanks for the feedback.

AWD is a priority for me in terms of choosing my next car. I love winter driving, and lots of fun.

The RC350 is like a full package for me.

I can't seem to compare it to anything else right now, as the car seems perfect to me.

Just wanted to make sure that current owners aren't experiencing any other problems too.

How are you finding the power distribution to be? Does the system feel more RWD biased or even all throughout the front and rear wheels?

Only downside with those is the bit extra you have to spend in tires, but of course focusing on the value a vehicle provides to you rather than the cost is always best.

I feel that the power distribution is pretty equal and you put the pedal down to the metal. I love the acceleration of this car and would not hesitate to get another
