The Problem: Fuel may leak from one of the fuel delivery pipes in the engine compartment; in the presence of an ignition source, this increases the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Toyota will begin notifying owners Monday, and dealers will replace any of the suspect fuel delivery pipes for free.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.

The 2015 Lexus RX 350's deep, wide cargo area makes use of numerous cargo-friendly features to complement the huge 40 cubic feet of space behind the backseat. Floor tie downs, cargo-area seat release levers, a sliding second row and a 40/20/40-split backseat all make the RX's cargo space extremely versatile.

Cars.com reviewer Bill Jackson was also impressed by the second row's function of hiding the cargo floor gap commonly left by a sliding second row. Jackson calls it a "thoughtful detail." See how well everyday items fit in the Lexus RX 350, below.
"For 2015, the Lexus RX 350 is a soft, almost numb, car that impresses with its responsive engine and general comfort, but comes up short at offering both a rewarding driving experience and exceptional interior luxury," said Cars.com reviewer Bill Jackson. Check out Jackson’s review for more.

Which you should buy, 2014 or 2015? 2015
The RX crossover SUV is the best-selling Lexus model, so there was little need to make major changes for 2015. Besides the standard backup camera and 7-inch display screen, other changes are minor. LED fog lamps are included with optional high-intensity-discharge headlights, the turn signals add a three-flash lane-change feature and the Enform app suite adds Slacker radio.
The lineup includes front- and all-wheel-drive versions of the RX 350 with a gas V-6 and the RX 450h V-6 hybrid, plus the front-drive F Sport model that adds a firmer suspension, more aggressive exterior trim and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The F Sport is a decent attempt at adding some zest to the RX line, but most buyers are more interested in the comfort and convenience features of the other models.
