2002 Lexus RX 300 SUV AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Looked at Acura MDX, Mercedes, and The RX. Wife liked the styling of the RX so we bought it. LIKES: The size and related styling is great for our needs. The ride is most comfortable and accommodates five adults easily. The quality of construction is excellent with few imperfections. Did not need the navigation system but ordered it anyway; absolutely love it! Will buy a Lexus product again even though we have owned Acuras in the past. DISLIKES: The roof rack "knobs" are most cumbersome (look at Jeeps set-up). The turning radius is too limited particularly for a SUV as short as this one.


Best Features

Style, quality, and ride.


Worst Features

Rack knobs and turning radius.

2002 Lexus RX 300 SUV 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We got this 2WD SUV with $35,500 OTD. I love the V6 engine and transmission, which is the same as my other car and van (Camry and Sienna). The interior is super. The reason we bought it because of our 10th anniversary. It worths to keep for another decade!


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

1. Audio control in steering wheel (even my 2002 Sienna CE has that!) 2. Smaller turning radius

Review

This car/SUV has excellent handling, great road stability in avoidance manoeuver (avoided a major crash at around 65 mph - thanks to the ABS). Nice pick up for a six, decent gas mileage. Interior well designed & all controls are well located. Could use a little more headroom (6'4"), & would like a telescopic steering wheel. A little wind noise at high speed. Excellent cabin noise reduction, where one can have speaker phone conversation without background noise. Great audio set up. Center console has four drink- holders, and enough storage to keep everyone happy. Overall a very satisfying driving experience all around, whether on long or short haul.


Best Features

Heated seats. In glove box CD changer. Homelink - built-in garage door opener.


Worst Features

Telescopic steering wheel. Steering wheel stereo controls. Heated mirrors.

2002 Lexus RX 300 SUV AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The ride on the Lexus RX300 is unsurpassed in this class. I've seen reviews where the ride is compared to a minivan and listed as a "con". This is ridiculous. I don't live in the mountains. I don't need a truck that rides like a semi. This vehicle is a car with everything an SUV delivers. And you never have to worry if it will start or breakdown. Which is definitely a worry with Acura, Mercedes, BMW & any american "truck".


Best Features

The ride is better than most top-of-the- line luxury cars. You don't need a step ladder to get in. Small enough that you can park it anywhere and it doesn't intimidate new-SUV owners who drove sedans.


Worst Features

The foot-well on the drivers side needs a few more inches for comfort (and this is the worst item I could think of)

Review

This truck is excellent! Two things the are outstanding are the base stereo and the brakes. The stereo is crisp, clear, rich, and loud. It is the best sound system I have ever heard. The braking system is superb. Braking is smooth and effortless and is not touchy or grabby at all.


Best Features

Brakes, Stereo, Quiet Ride, Build Quality, Customer Service


Worst Features

Put Stereo controls on steering wheel.
