Review

hi i am Mackenzie! I got McNugget for my first car at 16 years old this past summer with only 101,000 miles. WOW! Yes it did smell like moth balls and it had an exhaust leak, but it sat at my grandparents in Florida for 2 years, so what do you expect. The battery has some trouble in these cold Connecticut winters! The butt warmers work great in the snowy weather, as does the AWD system! It does have a temper, like me, and it doesn't like to start sometimes, then give it 10 minutes and it starts right up. It is 14 years old though, so what do you expect! It honestly is a great car if you don't always need reliability and you want to be known for the weird smells in the parking lot, so what do you expect, eh?

Review

Bought as fifth owner with 136K miles. Perhaps a risky move but the engine crapped out on the first 300 trip. After looking at the horror stories I'd never consider a RX300 again unless the previous owner maintenance could be verified beyond a shadow of a doubt, too risky.

Review

Hi, I have this car for 10 years now with 220k
In general it was a great car very comfi to drive.
It had few small problems but 2 problems that I want to share with all potential owners. One is with the anti lock brake sensors. During the 10 years had to change 2 anti lock sensors. 1000$ cost for each.Lexus built the antilock sensor into the drive shafts so there are 4 sensors in this car as it is a 4 wheel drive ( 4 shafts). In order to change the sensor the shaft must be replaced with a cost close to 1000$. Other issue is the timing belt. This model has a timing belt that must be changed around the 180k with a cost to the customer of close to 1000$. so be aware this is what you will face


Best Features

Driving position, visibility, comfort


Worst Features

Change to timing chain, improve the Anti Lock sensors so they will not fail so often and that it will be easy to change without changing the whole shaft !!
