Hyundai Vera Cruz vs. Lexus RX 350
Don't waste your money drive and compare,the Limited top of the line car at $40,000 is a joke the Lexus RX350 will beat it for quality and they stand behind their cars not so Hyundai,so much for their 100,000 mile Warranty it's not worth the paper its written on!!!!!!!.

BTW, You cant buy a $40,000 Veracruz no matter how hard you try.
By the way, rottencar- the SUV in question is called a Veracruz, not a Vera Cruz. If you've had such a lousy ownership experience (assuming you actually own a Veracruz) why not simply get rid of it and buy your dream RX350?
As you know, I had a stalling issue with my VC, just my luck! if I went out and bought a 350 for a whole wack of $$$ more, I would bet $ that I would have had an issue with it too!!! My luck hahaha!
Just get the one you like and be happy...oh yeah, if you have problems/issues with it...don't tell anyone 'cause the RX is sooooo perfect
I bought the car cash out the door with everything you could get on the car,my wife is sick with terminal brain cancer I needed a good car for her hospital trips,what a mistake it has been in the dealers for 49 out of 191 days.I have had nothing but trouble trying to get them to fix the car I'm 11 months into my wife's illness and I don't have a lot of spare time, so I get a little angry at people who make mean comments!.
Good bless to all, and have a safe holiday season
I'm sure the RX 350 is a fine car but anyone interested in a 7 passenger crossover SUV should at least drive the Veracruz and compare it with any other crossover SUV. I was pleasently surprised and I'm sure you would be also. To me, the Lexus is an inferior car, in part because it is an older design than the Veracruz and is just a five passenger vehicle.
My advice is - try it, you may just like it.
My wife needed a car last summer so I surprised her with a new Santa Fe. WOW! Everything the Lexus was not, plus the best warranty in the business. I knew from previous experience with a Tucson that Hyundai stands 100% behind their cars.
Now I am in the market to replace another lemon (2005 Nissan Titan). With barely 30000 miles I am having lots of little but expensive problems. Sooooo time to go back to Hyundai. I took a test drive in the Veracruz Ltd today. I was ready to write a check, but need to wait until my need for the truck is done - another couple of months. For the price and quality and warranty and standard safety features they have my vote and money. A white 2wd Veracruz is mine.
In VA here I used to count dozens of RX350's each day as I commuted to work. Thing is it had nothing to do with how "wonderful" or not the Lexus is, it was all about status.
These same people are/were living in the million plus per home neighborhoods.
I wondered for years how so many people could afford the pricey home and pricey car and now with how the economy is playing out I see they can't. Home prices are plummeting here and the Lexus count is going way down each week. I suppose they are turning in their cars and ending their leases hand over fist.
However, some will never buy a Hyundai before it costs an arm and a leg, and there are more of them in MB buyers than Lexus ones.
Wonder whether the super bowl ad would feature Veracruz in addition to Genesis...
What is funny, here where I work, someone had an RX300, and when I got my VC, I would park it next to it, and it made the RX look shabby. I noticed they no longer drive it to work, but drive a Hyundai car instead. :P
Almost identical vehicles.
