Just because people buy them doesn't mean that they are worth a crap.
The reason that the RX is in the pack is it does what its designed to be; A luxury Crossover. Now how Lexus, BMW, or any luxury manufacturer chooses to interpret and decide what a luxury crossover should be, is upto them. If reliable and efficient is what they decide a luxury crossover is, then by all means they are doing a great job. BMW considers a luxury crossover to be a pioneer in driving performance and technology, they too are doing a great job.
BMW and Mercedes Build Beta Products!
Lexus build Release Candidate Products!

Why does this matter?
CAUSE EVERY TIME someone says Lexus has better build quality, one should consider what Toyota their Lexus Engine and chassis platform comes out of and how long that part has been tested in the real world!
