1999 Lexus RX 300 SUV 4dr SUV


Review

No major problems. 90,000 miles. Change oil EVERY 3,500 miles. Minor problems: one seat belt, mass air flow sensor, rear trunk latch (asked for fix from day one; it broke after 8 years); am radio poor. Biggest repair has been starter contacts. My wife would never have driven any other car nine years (and counting). Perfect for her, and for two old folks with children gone. I am trying to hold off till 2010 for the next one I MUST buy for my wife.


Favorite Features

Size, comfort, mileage, styling still not too old looking.


Suggested Improvements

Seat belts, trunk latch. Nothing much. Want to see 2010 stretch style.

Review

This is a luxurious car that still has the size and safety of an SUV. The car has been very reliable and almost defect free. Lexus did do warrenty repair work on the fuel intake system and the exhaust manifold. I would definitely buy another one.


Favorite Features

The display screen for the sound system and the climate control. The in-dash CD player. The leather interior and the body integrity.


Suggested Improvements

Come up with a roof rack that is more functional.

Review

The Lexus RX300 sets the standard for all of the other SUV's on the market. Even with all of the copycats out there, their is still not other cross- over SUV like the RX300. People are always telling me how nice my RX looks even though they just came out with the RX330. Lexus has outdone themselves with this vehicle!!


Favorite Features

I love the climate control screen and the leather seats. Also the exterior styling is awesome.


Suggested Improvements

too much wind noise at high speeds, needs a bigger gas tank, and smaller turning radius. Lexus needs to create more aftermarket options for their vehicles as well.

Review

Love it...great to take my dogs with me. Low enough for them to jump in, High enough for me to feel safe


Favorite Features

I love the wood grain and the heated seats the best.


Suggested Improvements

One thing they could change is the information center display. You can't see it at all if it's sunny out.

Ride & handling; quiet; ease of entry/exit. Styling.

Reduce cost of dealer performed routine service. Better gas mileage.
