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


Review

I've been driving it for about a year and the whole experience is boring to say the least. There's little road information in the sluggish steering feel and road tracking isn't always linear and true. Braking is lousy and made artificially light. what really irks me is a wide turning circle that hinders parking and no such things as back up sensors offered. While cornering, you really feel its weight. I really feel this car is for a much older crowd. This car offers a silenced cabin and wallowy ride, yet unable to smooth out road bumps. Overall, disappointing car considering its hefty price and bad fuel mileage.


Best Features

Silenced ride, clarity of audio system, high seating, illuminated instrument cluster, functional and roomy interior


Worst Features

Better fuel milage, better turning circle, more precise steering with better on-center feel, better cornering, better brakes, a more damped suspension with better anti- roll bars, better visibility through the rear window

Review

Last year I purchased this SUV for my wife. I must say I'm sold on Lexus the car is wonderful to drive and the other day when I applied the ECT snow feature I was impressed with the active response. We are now a Lexus family, I will purchase either a LS 400 or SC 3 or 400 this spring.


Best Features

Reliability, drivability, handling, looks, sound system.

Comfort and safety with many conveniences.

Move hump between driver and passenger so as not to interfer with tall drivers knees.

Review

A great SUV. Interior little small for six footers or over. Gas mileage sensitive to speed. Would purchase again because of quality and reliability. Can put up with minor inconveniences in the "cockpit", e.g., the big hump in the cener that bumps your knee when you enter the vehicle and in the way of your right knee when driving.


Best Features

Quality and reliability


Worst Features

Get rid of hump in center of vehicle. Replace with a normal console.

Review

I really enjoy this car. I do crafting, home projects and gardening and it's perfect for hauling my supplies. It also gives me the flexibility of carrying passengers in comfort. Everyone who rides in the car comments on how smooth a ride it is.


Best Features

I can have a comfortable 5 passenger car or a VERY handy vehicle for hauling.
