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


Review

I have 1,200 miles on my RX and have had
it in for service 3 times to try to fix the
tracking, alignment problem. The car will not
drive down the road straight and stay driving
straight as if the front and rear wheels are
out of sync or camber. I have to constantly
correct the car from drifting right and left. It's
as though it responds to any and every
imperfection or shift in the road and will drift
off regardless of whether you have the
wheel pointed straight. I cannot relax and
cruise with this car and must keep my arms
flexed and be ready for every unexpected
shift in direction. Long drives are out of the
question. I couldn't be more unhappy...


Best Features

Given the above, it's really hard to appreciate all the great things about this car. It is certainly gorgeous and well appointed, but if the thing doesn't drive well, all the rest is moot.


Worst Features

fix the drive. I've driven 3 RXs (2 loaners) and they all have this drive problem. Lose the CD cassette and add the in-dash. The instrument panel is a bit confusing. The tires are too skinny.

Review

I think I've got a lemon this time.
Terrible rattle comes from the left
side of the vehicle. Excessive wind
noise at 60mph. According to a
service "professional" from Putnam
Lexus the wind noise is a standard for
this type of vehicle, and I could get
rid of it by folding the driver side
mirror. This car was in service several
times but all the problems are still
there + I've got several new ones like
scratch on the bumper and ink on
leather. My advice: Test this vehicle
on all types of road before purchasing,
and BEWARE of the service department at
Putnam Lexus in Redwood City, CA

Review

What a great car! Just bought this for
my wife. Dealership was great, could
not have been nicer or more
professional. Good deal on the car but
the best part IS the car (not always
true with a new car purchase). The
build quality, ride, stability and bang
for the buck are unsurpased. Lexus
just earned themselves a life-long
customer!


Best Features

heated seats. build quality. ride quality. interior space. exterior styling


Worst Features

auto lock doors (you know, they automatically lock once the car goes over 10 mph). Heated stearing wheel. Radio and cruise controls in the stearing wheel.
