Review

96K miles and trans is shot. power door locks do not work, power window works sporadically, had numerous check engine light issues, replaced sensors many times, dash light went out, steering wheel squeaks, these "luxury" cars will nickel and dime you to death, Never had so many problems with a non-luxury car.

Review

My last Lexus, I sold with less than 100k somewhat in fear that it was getting old. I see it now and then and it appears to be moving along just fine. My 2002 RX just turned 130k and it running strong. It has the parking lot dings and a few scrapes on the bumper but aside from that, I plan on pushing it to it's limit. When it comes to Santa Fe snow, it's a champ and have told my wife, I would get another based on its ability to handle the snow pack and lack of street clean up. I've had other 4 wd and even my old Trooper can't compare. I would have to say it's been the best vehicle I've owned. I would highly recommend even buying a good used one. Look forward writing you when I hit 200K.

Review

Justed changed by rear tail-light on my 2003 RX-300 and got to thinking that besides a set of tires and oil changes I haven't had to do anything to this truck. It still rides like a new car and I'm getting 17 MPG in town and 26 on the road. What more could you want from a car. My dealer is great for normal service (but high priced, I guess they all are) but I always drive off with a job well done. Might go for a 2010, but it would take a lot to get me out of this model, and have car payments all over again!


Best Features

Great car like ride. Like the center storage area and gear shift. Better visibility out the rear than the 2004 and up. Very reliable.


Worst Features

Wish there was any easy way to connect up my iPod

Review

Still smells like "NEW"! I want to sell this car for a 2005?? model. Poor turning radius & does not coast at all - you let off the gas & that's it. Uses more gas that way! Short seats being husband is 6' & long legged. Gives him sciatica!


Best Features

Has the look & nice color - mineral green. Nice sounding radio & disc. A lot of windows for touring the Blue Ridge here in WNC. Like the programmed garage door opener in visor.


Worst Features

Turning radius, longer seats, cup holder more convenient place, car should coast a little for gas savings (feels weird), still figuring out the alarm.
