2000 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD


Review

This car had a transmission problem at 94,000 miles that caused me over $3,500. Other than that I guess it is reliable. The brake pads are incredible; I am still on the original ones after more than 110,000 miles. Has not changed the timing belt yet, mechanic recommended at 120,000 vs. Lexus 90,000. My biggest complain is fuel economy, a full tank of gas gets only 230 miles. Pick up from get go is good however it lacks power at medium speed. The suspension is a bit soft and the turning radius is too large. I would want to have a little bit tighter body. I also want to replace this one with the hybrid.


Best Features

1. Overall built quality. 2. Brakes


Worst Features

1. a larger gas tank. 2. a better fuel economy 3. a little bit tighter suspension.

Review

I'm a recently converted Lexus fan. I thought it would just be a dressed up Toyota, but Lexus really got it right. This car does everything!

Review

we just purchased a used 2000 rx300, and loved it so much, purchased another 1999. i was a die-hard nissan fan, but i have to say this is a great ride for the money. drive one, and you will want to own one. one thing i noticed later, lexus has 2 sound systems. nakamichi and i believe pioneer. if you can, get the nakamichi - it sounds better, and has more of a "punch". either way, the vehicle is a dream to drive.


Best Features

quality, attention to detail.


Worst Features

minor stuff- rear door latch has known problems, about a $150 fix.

Review

Great car, fun to drive, sound system has great sound although the sound quality is not same when listening to the radio. The gas milage is low considering the size of the car at 14 mpg around town, but the car itself more than makes up for the low mileage.


Best Features

Nakamichi sound system, heated leather seats, memory seat feature, 6 disc changer, ride, auto-dimming mirrors and tinted glass. Handles very well and excellent brakes.


Worst Features

Variable temp. control on heated leather seats. A bit larger glove compartment to hold cd cases and a 10 disc changer, better gas milage and perhaps an overdrive feature.
