Good older SUV
By krw5 on
1999 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD
I bought this with 167k on it as a "winter beater" three years ago, never thinking that with that many miles it would be as great a vehicle as it is.
The only thing that's ever gone wrong is that the ignition coils needed to be replaced.
Still gets 20-25mpg, passes California smog with flying colors, looks pretty good for a 14 year old Lexus.
It did have the advantage of being a one owner vehicle serviced exclusively by a Lexus dealer (it even has a Lexus brand battery).
I change fluids religiously and expect it to go another 100k.
Heated front seats, automatic headlights, funky six-disc changer, leather, lots of toys that you'd never use (auto-dimming mirrors come to mind).
