Review of the 2003 Lexus RX 300

  • Looks like an SUV (sort of). Drives like a car. That's why this is Lexus' best-selling vehicle.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Well-appointed interior, perfect road manners, excellent crash test results, optional four-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Allergic to major off-highway work, cumbersome LCD screen in center of dash, feels more like a minivan than an SUV.

  • What's New for 2003

    Nothing has changed for the RX 300 during its move from 2002 to 2003. Prospective buyers should note that it will get a complete redesign for 2004.

Great suv

Vehicle: 2003 Lexus RX 300 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I've had it for 1 1/2 years and have loved every minute of it. This is the 2nd SUV I've owned and the other one didn't come close to this one. So far I've I had great gas mileage for an SUV (22.5)-that's almost as good as my last CAR! It is worth the price.

Excellent vehicle

This SUV/car is very fun to drive. It feels like a car yet gives you the advantages of an SUV. I have always felt that Lexus is overpriced. After owning one for almost a year, I understand why people are willing to pay a premium for these vehicles.

We bought our preowned '00 RX this past June, and I've loved every day of driving it. It was not in our budget to buy brand new, but I loved them so much, that I was more than willing to wait until an affordable preowned came up.

My lexus review

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Lexus RX 300 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

The car is a very good riding car. We have taken it on several trips and it cruises at highway speeds very comfortably. All our friends that ride in the back seats says it is a very comfortable riding car. The car also serves well when I have to carry larger objects that a regular sedan cannot handle. Dealer service has been excellent (South Bay Lexus)




Perfect driving machine

It's a fun SUV that drives like a car. You can't beat this luxury car.




Rx 300

Good suv, but would of rather of had the 04 330 model. The 04 has more of what I want. WE averaged 15.8 in the city and 16.0 on the highway in gas milage. I could get the same gas milage with a V8 and more power too!!! When the sunroof is open you get a bad wind like nose with the wind defector down and/or if one of the windows opened. It buggs!!! Service is way to exspenseve, but you atleast get a free rental car. You should for the price they charge! Other than that it is a good suv. I would recomend it to anyone. Every car, truck and suv has it's downs sides! As my dad would say " It is a 100 times better than an American SUV"!!!
