The First 200k Miles...
By jonesiam on
2000 Lexus RX 300 4dr SUV AWD
Purchased it pre-owned for an individual and it has been excellent with only a couple of small problems. I am at almost 200 thousand miles and it still drives great. Aside from regular service, I've only had to replace a rear wheel bearing and washer fluid pump. Both together were less than $600 which is not bad for a nine year old car. I did make the mistake of trying to upgrade the spark plugs to Bosh IR's which burned 3 coil packs before I went back to the original Toyota plugs. So I would suggest to stay "factory" when it comes to tune-ups.
Love the premium Nakamichi sound system - adjustable back seat for taller passengers and highway ride - it is an excellent driving car.
Gas mileage is not the greatest - I'm averaging 18 city and 21 on the highway. It's more luxury than performance and I would like to have both.
